See the story below of two veterans using VetFran to help them create their civilian franchising careers.
Roger Gauert and Jeff Olson own two completely different types of business franchises: Gauert has two Sport Clips – hair-cutting franchises in Maryland. Olson has one Papa Murphy’s – a take-and-bake pizza franchise in Wisconsin. But, both have one thing in common: Each chose veteran-friendly corporations to launch their businesses, through the VetFran® program offered by the International Franchise Association (IFA).
When all is said and done, veterans taking care of veterans makes all the difference to a fledgling business, Gauert and Olson say. Not only that, they observe that the military’s leadership culture also lends to workplace climates that in turn lead to franchise success.
