San Diego, California (NAPSI) - There is good news for veterans. A successful franchise operation believes the skills that military veterans gained during service have prepared them to be successful franchise business owners. Because of this, the company, Home Franchise Concepts (HFC), has created an opportunity that makes it easier for veterans to own a franchise.
Referred to as the Million Dollar Franchise Event, it’s a chance for military veterans of all backgrounds to purchase one of its franchise properties at significant discounts; $35,000 off the purchase of a Budget Blinds franchise and $5,000 off the purchase of a Tailored Living franchise.
Veterans seeking a career after active duty can begin the application process by visiting www.HFCsupportsvets.com. The Million Dollar Franchise Event hopes to award 30 Budget Blinds and/or Tailored Living franchises to deserving veterans to reach $1,050,000 in total discounts.
“My brother serves in the U.S. Navy and my father is a veteran of WW2,” said Tony Forbes, co-founder of HFC. “Launching the Million Dollar Franchise Event is the least we can do to honor the sacrifices that veterans have made. We hope this inspires other companies to take an active role in helping veterans transition.”
An Accessible Path
The company has found that starting a franchise business can be a fulfilling experience for veterans.
It often gives them newfound purpose and an exciting platform where they can apply their military training. The franchise discounts gives them a more affordable way to become business owners and live the American Dream.
Larry Sportello, a Budget Blinds franchisee and U.S. Navy veteran, said, “I can tell you firsthand that being in the military instills valuable traits in an individual—such as integrity, discipline and determination—that can be applied to the business environment to help a veteran succeed.”
A Proven Model
Both Budget Blinds and Tailored Living have years of experience helping customers improve their homes. They offer the convenience of free in-home consultations as well as complete measuring and installation services of window coverings and home organization products. Their franchise models have stood the test of time and veterans only need to follow set systems to reach success.
Budget Blinds has received industry recognition for being a top franchise for veterans from Military Times and Franchise Business Review. To learn more about the Million Dollar Franchise Event for veterans, visit www.HFCsupportsvets.com.
