May 20, 2013 // Franchising.com // Jackson, MI - KidzArt/Art Innovators, an international provider of art enrichment for all ages, announces it was ranked in the top 10 percent of all franchises nationwide and named a 2013 Military Friendly Franchise® by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs.
KidzArt/Art Innovators honors military veterans by waiving the franchise fee for qualified service members. Their Veteran's program also offers 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/Art Innovators is proud of this Military Friendly designation and of the fact that we allow veterans to use their background and training to launch a new civilian career with us," according to KidzArt CEO Sue Bartman.
A growing number of military veterans have become franchise owners by taking advantage of the special incentives offered by KidzArt.
“One in four returning service members indicate interest in owning their own business,” said Sean Collins, director for G.I. Jobs. “Franchises are a perfect fit for service members, who bring unparalleled operational skill sets and work ethic but are often unclear how to start a business. Being selected as a Military Friendly Franchise® places KidzArt/Art Innovators in an elite group and is testimony to their commitment to supporting military veterans interested in franchise opportunities.”
The 2013 Military Friendly Franchises® list was compiled via a data-driven survey overseen by an advisory board of industry experts. The survey results list were independently tested by Ernst & Young based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media.
