Cincinatti, Ohio

Why did you enlist?

I wanted a chance to take advantage of life’s opportunities by serving my country.

Why did you become interested in owning your own business?

Because I had a strict upbringing, I was ready to have a career that allowed freedom and flexibility.[/fusion_text][/two_third][two_third last=”no” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” hover_type=”none” link=”” border_position=”all” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ animation_offset=”” class=”” id=””][fusion_text]Why Franchising?

My husband owns a 7-Eleven store and I worked with him for a few years before purchasing my own store.

Why 7-Eleven?

7-Eleven has a military discount and veteran incentives. Even the 7-Eleven CEO is a military veteran, which impressed me.

How did you finance your franchise?

I used 7-Eleven’s military discount and veteran financing program.

What difficulties did you overcome to become a franchise owner?

Learning 7-Eleven’s business system and managing employees were two of the most difficult tasks I faced when I began operating my store.

Has your military training and experience helped you as a 7-Eleven franchise owner?

In both military training and 7-Eleven franchising, you are expected to try several solutions until you can make it work.

Is 7-Eleven a good option for post-9/11 veterans?

Yes, 7-Eleven is a recognizable brand that offers great veteran incentives. The franchisor is a leader in enlisting veteran franchisees and the business sets you up for long-term growth.[/fusion_text][/two_third][one_third last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” hover_type=”none” link=”” border_position=”all” border_size=”1px” border_color=”#cecece” border_style=”dashed” padding=”15px” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ animation_offset=”” class=”” id=””][title size=”3″ content_align=”center” style_type=”none” sep_color=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” class=”” id=””]Theresa’s Advice for Future Veteran Franchisees[/title][checklist icon=”fa-chevron-right” iconcolor=”#ffffff” circle=”” circlecolor=”#bf2b2b” size=”16px” class=”” id=””][li_item icon=””]I would suggest working at the franchise as an employee first in order to learn the business.[/li_item][li_item icon=””]I’d confirm I understand the time management aspect of owning a store. I’ve found there is always something to do in the store, but it’s important to have the discipline to leave some of it for later.[/li_item][li_item icon=””]I’d encourage veterans to be involved in their local communities. Your franchise will quickly become a neighborhood destination.[/li_item][/checklist][/one_third][/fullwidth]
