ALBUQUERQUE, NM - May 16, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ - Get A Grip Resurfacing, a family-owned, national franchise company with headquarters in Albuquerque, is pleased to announce that it has been named by G.I. Jobs magazine as a Military Friendly Franchise for 2013. This is the third year on the list. The list, compiled on behalf of the 3 million military members and veterans seeking a franchise, represents the top 10% of the nation's franchises doing the most to recruit military veterans.
"One in four returning service members indicate interest in owning their own business. Get A Grip Resurfacing honors military veterans by offering service members by allowing veterans to use their background and training to launch a new civilian career," said Sean Collins, director for G.I.
