July 02, 2014 // Franchising.com // Toronto, ON – The World Franchising Network recently released its annual survey of veteran participation in international franchising, which was featured in the June 20, 2014 issue of USA Today. For the second year in a row, Tutor Doctor, the fastest growing "at-home" tutoring franchise worldwide, has been recognized as one of the top 50 franchises for veterans. The franchising community has grown to play a dominant leadership role in recruiting veterans, and the Top 50 list distinguishes franchisors with over 40 operating units that have gone above and beyond to recruit and retain veterans.
"We have experienced an overwhelming level of success in recruiting veterans and look forward to further growth as we continue to hire these natural leaders to join our system," said Frank Milner, President of Tutor Doctor. "Veterans make excellent franchisees because they have a strong sense of service, look out for others, and know exactly how to follow a system. Our veteran franchisees contribute a strong work ethic and discipline to Tutor Doctor’s business model and custom-tailored educational programs which brings out the best in our students and truly makes a difference in the lives of the families we serve."
Each franchise featured in the Top 50 list has excelled in veteran participation by investing the time and resources to create a welcoming culture and model for veterans returning to civilian life, both as franchisees and employees. Tutor Doctor has offered a discount of 12.5 percent off the investment fee for veterans over the past five years and also works with VetFran, a program that assists returning service members in accessing franchise opportunities through training, financial assistance, and industry support. Additionally, Tutor Doctor aims to recruit veterans through targeted campaigns via Facebook and LinkedIn. Currently, 10 percent of Tutor Doctor franchisees are military veterans and the company is seeking to increase that number by further expanding its veteran recruitment programs in the upcoming years.
"My 27-year career in the Air Force instilled a very strong passion for educating others," said Robert Rosedale, military veteran and Tutor Doctor franchisee. "As a Commander, I had instructors working one-on-one with over 100 student pilots every day and now as a Tutor Doctor franchisee, I have about 100 tutors working one-on-one to improve student’s lives every day! Being a Tutor Doctor franchisee has been an incredibly rewarding experience so far and I look forward to advancing my business to the next level."

The company quickly grew and in 2003 turned to franchising as a way of expanding the company’s impact and meeting the vast market demand. Now with offices internationally in Canada, the United States, Latin America, the United Kingdom, Middle East and Africa, the Tutor Doctor vision is becoming a reality as the lives of students and their families are being positively impacted throughout the world.
