Thousands of veterans are putting their military skills to use as franchise owners. The International Franchise Association (IFA) estimates there are more than 66,000 veteran-owned franchises in the United States. In 2011 the IFA’s VetFran launched a concerted effort to recruit America’s veterans, and since then more than 5,600 have become franchise owners.
The leadership, discipline, teamwork, work ethic, mission-focus and adaptability veterans learn in the military transfer well to franchising, where they can apply their experience in executing systems to a proven business model.
These 15 franchises stood out from the pack: their dedication to providing powerful business solutions to veterans make them our 15 Hot Franchises for 2016. Check out our complete list below and start your future today.

Getting out I had no degree, I only had 25 years experience leading Soldiers. Soldiers need to be open minded, and flexible for whatever opportunity presents itself. It's amazing how many jobs are out there that transitioning Soldiers don't know they want. I absolutely love my "no glamour job that I didn't know I wanted".

GI Jobs is an awesome magazine and I recv many great compliments to the quality of the TAP program we provide which includes a copy of this magazine to each TAP attendee. It has been an extremely difficult time for our transitioning veterans but thanks to your support and our program we have had much success her in Utah.
