June 26, 2013 // Franchising.com // South Windsor, Manchester, Vernon and Tolland, CT - Between Rounds Bakery Sandwich Café, the unique bakery café and bagel shop with locations in South Windsor, Vernon, Manchester and Tolland, announced it has been named a 2013 Military Friendly Franchise® by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs.
The Between Rounds Bakery Sandwich Café company honors military veterans by offering service members a discount on the initial franchise fee of 50 percent of the regular $65K-$95K fee (a $1.2M investment total). This allows veterans to use their background and training to launch a new civilian career.
“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 Between Rounds Bakery Sandwich Café in an elite group and is testimony to the company’s 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.
"We're honored to be ranked among the top 10 percent of franchises nationwide. You could not ask for a better franchise opportunity than Between Rounds," noted Jerry Puiia, co-owner of the franchise.
