June 21, 2012 // Franchising.com // Bethesda, MD - The Interface Financial Group has been named one of the Top Franchises for Veterans by the World Franchising Network. The results were featured in the June 15, 2012 issue of USA Today in the Franchising Today section. More than 400 companies requested evaluation to be included in the list.
To be evaluated for the list, each participating franchisor submitted a completed questionnaire, noting both the absolute number of and percentage of the total number of operating units owned by veterans as well as the number of veterans in senior management.
“The steady increase in veteran representation in the franchising community is clear evidence of the intrinsic values, invaluable experience learned through life’s lessons and the exceptional work ethic of our military veterans,” says Rob Bond, founder of the World Franchising Network.
To further increase its outreach to veterans returning from conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, The Interface Financial Group, a 40 year old international franchise, is offering special terms and conditions in franchise and maintenance fees to veterans with an honorable discharge from the United State or Canadian armed forces looking to open an Interface franchise.
“The Interface Financial Group franchise is uniquely suited to returning veterans who bring with them a host of special skills, leadership training and discipline,” says David Banfield, president of The Interface Financial Group. “We thank our returning veterans for their service and are pleased to help them open their own business.”
