February 15, 2012 // Franchising.com // Jackson, MI - Finding quality employment for our nation's veterans is a challenge. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 14.7% of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans are unemployed long term (April 2010). The Bureau also reports that the unemployment rate in the education sector has increased from 3.5% in 2009 to 5.6% in 2011 leaving many teachers out of work. To help address these national unemployment issues, KidzArt is launching its Franchise Giveaway program for ten qualified veterans and ten teachers.
KidzArt, an international children's art education franchise company, will provide business opportunities to veterans and teachers who are over twenty one years of age and legal US residents through its newly announced Franchise Giveaway program.
"KidzArt is interested in providing former service members and teachers the opportunity to become business owners and leaders in their communities," says Chris Cruikshank, president and founder of KidzArt. "We hope that the special incentives in this program will encourage people to put their business, military or teaching skills to use and become entrepreneurs."
Program requirements include an interview, the ability to attend training in Jackson, MI for five days and $3,500 available for working capital to launch the business.
In addition to waiving the $9,900 franchise fee, KidzArt is offering a protected territory, a Web page, a $500 online class registration system, $1000 off all start up marketing services, complete business and art training and on-going franchise support.
KidzArt's Franchise Giveaway will continue until all winners have been selected, trained and start their businesses.
