SOP (standard operating procedure) is a term well understood by anyone who has served in the armed forces. It refers to a plan, a system, a step-by-step method for how a particular mission or function will be carried out. Veterans understand the importance of following a plan to successfully execute a mission and capitalize on every opportunity. This systematic approach to achieving goals is very similar to the franchising model of doing business â€“and it's why more and more veterans are taking advantage of franchise opportunities after returning to civilian life.
VetFran â€“ a program created in 1994 and sponsored today by the International Franchise Association â€“ was formed to help veterans achieve ownership of a franchise business. Today VetFran continues to offer financial incentives to honorably discharged U.S. veterans, and many franchisors participate in the program.
Check out the veteran-friendly franchise brands below, many of which participate in the VetFran program.
