The US Small Business Administration (SBA) is a government agency that carries the mandate of providing financial support to entrepreneurs. It doesn’t lend money directly. Instead, it guarantees a part of the loans made to small firms by certain banks, credit unions, and non-bank lenders with which it has a tie-up. SBA loans are available […]

Most franchise companies require an acceptable net worth and a liquid capital investment, which can be in the form of cash, securities, 401K, or home equity. Veteran Franchise Centers partners with franchise companies at all investment levels, however there are minimum requirements you should know about.
There are many franchise options out there—some great, some good, and some not so good. It can be quite difficult to weigh their pros and cons alone, no less understanding their franchise fees, estimated startup fees, and so on.
Sorting through this enormous collection of opportunities is a daunting and time consuming task. You could spend months sorting and looking at franchises. And you’d find that most, if not all of them, just don’t match with what you want in a franchise business. Veteran Franchise Centers has done much of the homework for you by having carefully pre-screened hundreds of franchise companies and only working with those that are great matches for our clients.
The following testimonials are from actual U.S. military veterans that Veteran Franchise Centers has worked with.

Your Own Business
Running a new franchise can be a foolproof way of starting your own business. The franchisor would provide all the support and training that you would need. The product or service that you would be selling would already have an established market and all that you would have to do would be to manage […]

By taking this route, they get time to familiarize themselves with the product that they are selling and with the rules imposed by the franchisor. A single-unit operator who is able to make a success of the business will probably […]

There’s a new trend in the franchising world that more and more people are considering. It’s called social sector franchising. The idea […]

Be Your Own Boss
The vast majority of Americans can’t stand their jobs and can’t stand their bosses. Do something about it.
A Proven Process
Franchises offer a business model that has been successful before. You get the playbook; all you have to do is adopt it to your market.
Becoming an entrepreneur allows you to reap the rewards of your hard work.
Guys getting out of the military have an excellent opportunity with a franchise instead of working at a dead-end job. It’s easy to save money when you are in the military to save up for a franchise with the sign-up bonuses. I like that the colors of my van are red, white, and blue and that my franchise has given me the opportunity to own and run one of the most thought-out and ethical businesses that I have seen.
My franchise has helped me provide for my family like I never would have been able to do working for someone else. The franchise company helped me with planning and guidance, it gave someone who wouldn’t have been able to be successful in business the opportunity to succeed.
I purchased a franchise with a proven system and great support. I sometimes call it a business in a box, because Veteran Franchise Centers provided me with all of the tools necessary to be successful–and that is exactly what I have become.
I greatly appreciate the service Veteran Franchise Centers provides. I would highly recommend your organization to anyone transitioning from military service.
