Mr. Handyman Franchise Ranks High on 2010 Best for Veterans List

Military Times Edge Magazines recently announced that the national home repair and maintenance franchise and the nation's No. 1 employer of handymen is among this year's 2010 Best for Veterans honorees.

NORTHBROOK, IL /24-7PressRelease/ -- As more and more military veterans look for new business opportunities, many are finding success with opening a VetFran franchise. Mr. Handyman franchises are being honored for their efforts in helping U.S. military veterans launch their own business. Military Times Edge Magazines recently announced that the national home repair and maintenance franchise and the nation's No. 1 employer of handymen is among this year's 2010 Best for Veterans honorees.

Military Times Edge Magazine ranks companies based on their professional business practices, record of stable growth and commitment to providing business opportunities to America's veterans.

"Mr. Handyman's commitment to helping U.S. veterans start new careers has grown tremendously over the past several years and this program is another opportunity for us to recognize and reward America's Veterans by offering them a significant discount through the VetFran program," said Todd Recknagel, Mr. Handyman's President and CEO. "We are committed to helping military veterans build successful businesses and we welcome additional veteran entrepreneurs to become part of our national home repair and maintenance franchise."

Mr. Handyman earned inclusion in the Military Times Edge rankings, in part, for the discounts they offer to veterans opening new franchises through their VetFran discount program. While ranking No. 30 on the list, Mr. Handyman has helped 39 franchisees with individual VetFran discounts of $2500 totaling $110,600 since the program began in 2005.

Contributing to Mr. Handyman's high ranking is their involvement in MinorityFran, an initiative of the International Franchise Association (IFA). Launched in February, 2006, MinorityFran was created to build the awareness of franchising within minority communities and increase the numbers of minority franchisees, employees and suppliers.
