Small Canadian Company Is on A Mission to Put American Veterans Back to Work

Fibrenew Offering over $250,000 in Value to Start New Franchise Businesses

Black Diamond, Alberta (PRWEB) July 09, 2013 - Fibrenew, a small Canadian company, is searching for a few good men and women to win the Operation Restoration contest. Launching today, the online contest is a chance for entrepreneurial veterans to learn a new skill, own their own business and achieve financial freedom. The winners will each receive exclusive territories worth $67,000 each, enabling them to start their own Fibrenew franchises.

One way to boost the economy and provide more jobs is to encourage entrepreneurship (or “vetpreneurship”). Veterans are 45 percent more likely to venture into entrepreneurship than people with no active-duty military experience, according to a May 2011 study from the Small Business Administration (SBA) Office of Advocacy. In 2007 (latest data available from U.S. Census Bureau), veterans owned 2.4 million businesses, or 9 percent of all businesses nationwide, and employed nearly 5.8 million people.

“Fibrenew is committed to helping people help themselves,” says Michael Wilson, Fibrenew CEO. “We realize the recession has affected millions of people who really want to work. We thought we could stoke the American competitive and entrepreneurial spirit by having a competition to win a business. Based on their creativity, originality, and how well suited we think the contestants are to own a Fibrenew franchise, we will reward up to four winners with an exclusive territory, subject to the same terms and conditions as our other franchisees. We are really excited about the Operation Restoration contest because we feel that we have a special company that can help people restore parts of their lives that the dismal economy has taken away.”

The process is simple. For a chance to get on the fast track to starting your business, just visit and follow the instructions!

Four winners will be selected by a large group of Fibrenew management and franchisees. The winners will be announced in November 2013. To be eligible, contestants must not be colorblind or discussed a franchise purchase with a franchise broker.
