According to one study, one in seven franchise owners are military veterans and that number continues to grow. Many veterans are considering franchise ownership because of the opportunities that this business model offers for growth and earning potential. Now has never been a better time for veterans to look at a franchise business. There are several veteran government and private loans programs that will help finance the purchase of a franchise, and in many cases 100% financing is available. There are many solid reasons why veterans are a perfect fit for franchise ownership and often become very successful franchise owners.
Strong Leadership & People Skills
One of the keys to being a successful franchisee is the ability to use interpersonal skills effectively to manage customer expectations, employee issues and problem solving. These are traits that many veterans have been trained to accomplish and are second nature to them. Most veteran have learned to incorporate these skills to create a daily environment that fosters hard work, trust, value and loyalty. So, if you are a veteran, ask yourself does this sound like you? If so, becoming a franchise owner may be the type of business opportunity to assist you in securing your financial future. As with anything, you need to make sure that you do some research on the right type of franchise and make sure that it’s aligned with your long-term goals, values and has a successful track record. Our team at Triton Franchise is here to help.
Strong Attitude on How to Understand and Execute a Standard Operating Procedure
Can you follow the Franchisor Operating Manual and Execute it without causing issues to the process that have in many cases taken the franchisor years to enact? One the most important characteristics of a successful franchisee is the one who follows the instructions provided by franchisors and utilizes all the available resources and funds to make sure the goals are achieved. Again, veterans fully understand the level of attention to detail and have worked with standard operating procedures. We as veterans have been taught how to make sure that “Things are done by the book” and that the results are successful each time. The franchise model is one of the best options for any veteran exploring business opportunities.
Passion and Dedication
When I first thought about what branch of service that would fit my career goal, I took a hard look at which one would bring out my true passion and in return I could give them my full dedication to service. I always tell the veterans we work with that they should think the same way when looking for the right franchise opportunity that fits them personally. There are going to be some very long hours initially when operating the franchise and positioning it in the market to be successful, but the the work ethic, drive, passion, dedication and willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done to make the franchise successful is what makes veterans the perfect franchise owner.
