February 19, 2013 // Franchising.com // MADISON, AL – Tom Lemieux, Army Veteran and one of WIN Home Inspection’s newest Strategic-Partners (that’s WIN-speak for franchisee) in Madison, Alabama is now open for business! A recipient of WIN’s veteran focused WIN for America program, Lemieux, along with eight others in 2012, were recipients of a $40,000 Service Award per the ‘WIN for America’ program, with his full franchisee fee waived.
Lemieux was awarded his WIN franchise in September 2012, and after extensive training, educational sessions and fieldwork, he began operating in February 2013. Lemieux is a native of the Huntsville area and ironically for 10 years prior he had been considering home inspection as a business opportunity. Lemieux says, “I heard about WIN through a local veteran’s group Still Serving Veterans and from there it all fell into place. I’m so grateful for this opportunity to work for WIN, a company with integrity right in my backyard. And, it’s through their WIN for America program that makes it all possible.”
It’s not often that veterans represent 25% of a company’s franchisee base, but at WIN Home Inspection, that is exactly what you will find. Inspired by the IFA’s "Operation Enduring Opportunity” initiative - WIN committed $1.2 million dollars in financing and created their own “WIN for America” program to honor veterans. By awarding revered veterans the opportunity to waive their franchise fee, this program aids them in the transition into the civilian business world, while capitalizing off their valuable military skills.
Lemieux can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, via phone at (256) 348-8960 or www.winhomeinspectionmadison.com.
