May 22, 2015 // Franchising.com // Deerfield Beach, Fla. – G.I. Jobs®, the premier resource for helping transitioning service members find success in civilian careers, recently released its 2015 Hot Franchises For Veterans™. The list includes Coverall North America, Inc., a leading franchisor of commercial cleaning businesses, as among the top companies in a diverse group of business categories, ranging from travel to fitness, sharing a common interest in recruiting and training more owner-operators with military experience. Aspiring “vetrepreneurs” can leverage the list to find the franchise concept that best fits their lifestyle, budget and skills. The list is published in the June issue of G.I. Jobs® and can be viewed online at http://www.gijobs.com/top-12-hot-franchises-veterans-2015/.
“We’re honored to be named as a top franchise for veterans by G.I. Jobs,” said Rick Ascolese, Coverall CEO. “Our franchise system helps veterans leverage their military experience, familiarity with structured environments and process orientation to start a business. We’re here in their local market to support their franchised business every step of the way.”
A 2014 study prepared by Franchise Business Review for the International Franchise Association (IFA) found that, since 2011, 203,000 veterans and military spouses have started careers in franchising. In total, 198,282 veterans found employment in franchising between 2011 and October 2014. Additionally, the survey showed an increase in veteran franchise ownership, bringing the total of veteran franchise owners since 2011 to 5,608.
“It’s clear from the numbers that successful businesses like Coverall and our other Hot Franchises recognize that veterans are among the best franchisees around,” says Sean Collins, Vice President for Military Products at Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs® and post-9/11 Navy veteran. “Skills and traits learned in military service - leadership, being a quick learner, determination, following operational procedures and leveraging all available resources - are used each and every day to run a franchise.”
