Three Military Veterans Join U.S. Lawns

June 11, 2013 // Franchising.com // ORLANDO, FL – U.S. Lawns reaches out to military veterans with financial assistance and guidance to help them start and grow their new businesses.

“Three out of five of our new franchisees that attended training in May were military veterans,” said U.S. Lawns President Ken Hutcheson. “We are always honoured to welcome more military veterans to our family.”

"I like the thought of working with other businesses in my community," said Brock. "I like the U.S. Lawns network of support and its veteran outreach. I also like that they offer a clear path and a system to follow. Going from the military to a franchise just makes sense. The military relies on systems and procedures for everything. The military wants you to succeed, and like a franchise, it's structured for success. I know I will be a success."

Asked how the military prepared him for ownership, Ronnie responded, "Military is structured. It has rules, systems and procedures. It pushes you to continually do the right thing. If you help people get what they want, you can get what you want. I want to grow my business and teach my employees how to become successful in their careers. That’s what I did in the military (teach others), and that’s what I will do in my own business."

Jarrad & Jasmina Boever

- U.S. Lawns - Des Moines, IA
"I have always enjoyed working outside and have also wanted to be a business owner, so I decided to start a business I would enjoy," said Jarrad. "I chose U.S. Lawns because of the great things we read about U.S. Lawns and its reputation. We wanted to be a part of something greater."

Ken Hutcheson added, “We offer special assistance for vets and are proud to be ranked in the 50 Top Franchises for Veterans. We are a vet-friendly franchise. We believe vets deserve something in return for their commitment to our country. There is a good fit between the military structure and a franchise environment. The franchising model offers vets a perfect transition from military to civilian life and provides them with a strong, independent future. U.S. Lawns provides franchisees with systems and ongoing support that help them achieve success more quickly than they may have experienced on their own.”
