-- (Oaks, PA)—Over the past few decades franchising has exploded, bringing with it opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs, including military veterans. G.I. Jobs Magazine’s latest 2011 Military Friendly Franchise® list recognizes the top seven percent of the nation’s franchises that demonstrate the best military recruiting practices. CertaPro Painters, the largest painting franchise company in North America, has just been named to this elite list with nearly 25 military veteran-owned locations.
G.I. Jobs created the list to help veterans who wanted to own their own business, but weren’t sure where to begin, identify franchise opportunities that best fit their lifestyle, budget and skills. Over 4,000 franchises were polled nationwide in a comprehensive survey. The full list of Military Friendly Franchises can be found in the June issue of G.I. Jobs Magazine and on http://www.MilitaryFranchising.com
“We have very strong veteran recruitment efforts,” says President and COO Rich Wilson. “We find that veteran franchisees’
honest and disciplined work ethic harmonizes with the goals and overall mission of the company.”
