ATLANTA, GA, June 28, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Granite Transformations, a remodeling services franchise with offices and showrooms across the world, has been named by the World Franchising Network as one of the top 50 companies in the franchising industry for veterans.
The World Franchising Network selected 50 franchisors from more than 400 companies to be honored as a top franchise for veterans. To determine the listing, each participating franchisor was required to submit a completed questionnaire, which noted both the absolute number of and the percentage of the total number of operating units owned by veterans, as well as the number of veterans in senior management that earned over $60,000 per year.
"Granite Transformations is honored to be one of the top listed franchises for veterans, particularly because we have always believed that veterans are ideal candidates as franchise owners," explains Mark Johnson, CEO of Granite Transformations. "We will continue to serve and honor veterans by providing them franchise discounts and offering them the chance to live the ultimate American dream of owning their own business."
The World Franchising Network, which manages the http://www.Franchises4Vets.com website, also has four annual publications on franchising and 12 other websites focusing solely on franchising.
"The steady increase in veteran representation within the overall franchising community over the last several years has been extremely encouraging," stated Rob Bond, founder of the World Franchising Network. "It certainly is clear evidence of the intrinsic values, invaluable experience learned through life's lessons and the exceptional work ethic of our military veterans. Hopefully, this trend will continue so that these fine young men and women can test their skills in franchising."
