Mr. Appliance® in Top 20 of Best for Vets Franchises
WACO,Texas (PRWEB) September 12, 2014 - Military Times recently announced its Best for Vets: Franchises 2014-15 rankings. The organization comprising Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times and Marine Corps Times focused on financial incentives, brand performance and policies that cater to veterans and reservists when conducting and scoring the Best for Vets: Franchises survey, a highly respected, nearly 110-question analysis of a franchise’s efforts to provide veterans an environment for success.
"As with all of the Best for Vets rankings, Best for Vets: Franchises is an editorially independent news project that evaluates the many factors that make an organization a good fit for military veterans and spouses," said Amanda Miller, editor of Military Times EDGE magazine.
Mr. Appliance ranked at 14 on the list published by Military Times. In June, they were selected by USA Today and the WorldFranchising Network as one of the Top 50 best franchise opportunities for Veterans. Mr. Appliance is a participant in the Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative. A program established by Don Dwyer Sr., an Army Veteran and founder of The Dwyer Group, soon after the Gulf War ended in 1991. Today, The Vet Fran program is a voluntary effort of International Franchise Association (IFA) member companies to encourage franchise ownership by offering business franchise opportunities and financial incentives to honorably discharged veterans.
"We are forever grateful to those who have so willingly sacrificed for this country and are dedicated to providing them with the opportunity to be business owners with Mr. Appliance," Heather McLeod, Director of Franchise Sales Marketing at The Dwyer Group, parent company of Mr. Appliance, said.
The rankings are published in full in the September issue of Military Times EDGE magazine, the premier publication for military transition. The full rankings are posted on the Military Times webpage.
