The International Franchise Association (IFA) has launched new tools to help US veterans start their own franchise businesses.
These new tools include a VetFran Toolkit and a Veterans Mentor Network and are part of the IFA’s Operation Enduring Opportunity campaign.
Steve Caldeira, President and CEO of the IFA, said: “With over 70,000 veteran-owned franchises in operation already and a million troops returning home in the coming years, franchise businesses are looking to recruit additional veterans into small business ownership and create employment opportunities for our returning heroes. These tools will connect veterans with information about franchise ownership, potential lenders and determine which military skills may best translate to available franchise opportunities.”
