BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 14, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- Coverall Health-Based Cleaning System, a leading franchisor of commercial cleaning businesses, honors America's military veterans on Veterans Day and the rest of the year by providing incentives, training and innovative franchise models to help veterans become successful in new civilian careers.
In fact, Coverall was ranked in the top 10 percent of all franchises nationwide and was named on the 2011 Military Friendly Franchises® list by G.I. Jobs magazine and on the Best for Vets: Franchises 2011 list by Military Times EDGE magazine. Both lists are compiled to help U.S. military veterans identify franchisors who offer the most incentives to veterans seeking a franchise business opportunity.
"The Military Friendly Franchises® list was created three years ago out of demand from military veterans, many of whom want to start or own their own business but are unclear where to begin," said Sean Collins, director for G.I. Jobs. "Being selected as a Military Friendly Franchise places Coverall in this elite group, and is testimony to Coverall's world-class programs and policies that support military veterans interested in franchise opportunities."
The G.I. Jobs 2011 Military Friendly Franchises list honors the top seven percent of the nation's franchises based on their policies and efforts to actively recruit military veterans as franchisees. To compile the list, the magazine polled thousands of franchises nationwide and used a Franchise Advisory Board to develop the methodology, criteria and weighting for the list.
For 2011, Military Times EDGE magazine structured its "Best for Vets" list using "good, better, best" categories that reflect their evaluation of the strength of the franchisor's veteran incentive. Coverall was named to the "best" category.
"We honor our veterans' service to this nation on Veterans Day and every day," said Patrick Joyce, Coverall's Chief Operating Officer and a former US Marine. "We recognize that those with military experience have the skills needed to become successful entrepreneurs, and we encourage and welcome them to be part of the Coverall System. We are proud to be recognized by both Military Times EDGE and G.I. Jobs magazines for the opportunities we offer veterans."
