Military Times Names PuroClean as a Top Franchise for Veterans in 2018

Restoration Franchise Excels at Opportunities and Support for Veterans

TAMARAC, Fla. - Feb. 21, 2018 // PRNewswire // - PuroClean, a leading restoration and remediation franchise, has been named a top franchise for veterans by Military Times on the Military Times Best: Franchises 2018 list.

Known as the "Paramedics of Property Damage," PuroClean's inclusion as a top franchise for veterans comes on the heels of the introduction of the company's PuroVet program. Through PuroVet, veterans receive a 25 percent, or $12,500, discount on the company's franchise fee. Additionally, the PuroVet program offers additional savings from vendors and MatchU Franchising. Veterans who pursue the PuroClean franchise opportunity through the PuroVet program will benefit from training at our $1.2 million state-of-the-art training facility, the largest territories in the industry, and several financing options.

In addition to hands-on training and a discounted franchise fee, PuroClean also prides itself on having high-level leadership with a military background. President Steve White is an Army veteran and member of the IFA's VetFran committee. "As an Army vet, I'm happy to see the number of veteran franchise prospects grow year over year, and we continue to add amazing veteran franchise owners to our system," said White.

"Veterans are community-minded, fiercely determined, and passionate about improving the lives of others. These qualities make for a great PuroClean franchise owner," said Tim Courtney, VP of Franchise Development. "PuroClean intends on doing everything in its power to thank them for their service to our country by providing them with top-of-the-line training, a discounted franchise fee, and continual support and mentorship opportunities. We believe we offer an ideal path to entrepreneurship for veterans across the country, so it's an honor to be recognized by Military Times."

A valuable resource for veterans – and a coveted honor for companies around the country – the annual Military Times rankings are the result of a meticulous, months-long process. Military Times invites franchise companies to fill out its rigorous survey of more than 100 questions, tests to ensure the accuracy of responses, carefully evaluates survey data, and includes only the best companies in its published rankings. In its seventh year, the franchise rankings evaluate company culture, investment quality, overall franchising costs, military discounts, and other non-financial supports, including support for franchise owners in the National Guard and reserves.

"The franchise brands on this list make the extra effort for their veteran and military-connected franchisees," said George Altman, the Military Times editor in charge of the rankings. "They earned their places on these rankings through their dedication to current and former service members, and their efforts should get the attention of veterans considering launching a franchise."

In 2018, PuroClean will have even more business ownership opportunities for veterans with the anticipated addition of 75 new franchises. Markets that will see a targeted development push include California's Bay Area; New England; Cheyenne, Wyoming; Boise, Idaho; Denver, Colorado; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Baltimore, Maryland.
