Service Team of Professionals, a Franchise To Honor American Heroes with an Initial Franchise Fee Giveaway for One U.S. Military Veteran Contest
April 24, 2018 // Franchising.com // Bloomington, IN. - Service Team of Professionals, (STOP) pledged to honor those who have bravely served their country with a tribute unlike any before it. STOP, a leader in property restoration services, announced a heartfelt “thank you” to veterans in the form of an extraordinary initial franchise fee giveaway for one qualified U.S. military veteran. After a review of all prospective veteran franchisee applications and essays, STOP will announce the potential winner on July 15, 2018. STOP will honor the selected winner by waiving the initial franchise fee, a $48,000 value, for a new STOP franchise. Winning veteran contestant must meet all of the franchise company’s standard franchisee qualifications. The contest is open to all retired service members, soon to retire, and honorably discharged veterans from any branch of the U.S. armed forces.
“It is very important for us to show our gratitude to those who have bravely served our country,” said Brian Clark, CEO of STOP. “We want to provide a path to franchise ownership for a veteran, and this franchise fee giveaway is just one way to go the extra mile to making business ownership obtainable for these brave men and women.”
STOP has long made it a priority to seek out high quality veteran candidates for its franchise opportunity. Men and women with military service often exemplify the very core values that STOP looks for in prospective franchisees, including commitment, teamwork, dedication, who value training and support and who are driven to succeed in their mission.
“The same qualities that allow someone to succeed as a member of our nation’s armed services often make them a perfect franchisee with STOP,” said Daren Clark, Director of Franchise Development. “We want to make sure that we’re attracting the best franchise candidates possible, especially veterans. We look forward to reading their stories, and giving them the opportunity to open a STOP location in their local market.”
Starting April 15, 2018 with an entry deadline of June 15, 2018, STOP is inviting prospective franchisees to register on our website, submit an essay, submit a credit report, provide a personal Financial Statement as well as complete an assessment. The brief essay should focus on how an applicant’s background and career goals align with STOP’s mission and values and why they would like to become a member of the STOP franchise family.
A panel of judges from STOP will select the qualified veteran based on their contest applications, which includes the essay. Winning veteran contestant must meet all of the franchise company’s standard franchisee qualifications. Normally, STOP shows its ongoing commitment to veteran business ownership by offering a discount of $4,800 off the initial franchise fee for any military veteran seeking to open a STOP franchise. As a result, STOP proudly has 5 veteran owned franchises.
The announcement of the Veterans Initial Franchise Fee Giveaway comes as STOP is awarded Franchise Business Reviews Top 200 Award-Winning Franchise Opportunities for 2018. STOP was among 307 franchise brands, representing over 28,000 franchise owners, that participated in Franchise Business Review’s research. STOP franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity. STOP’s level of satisfaction in areas which are crucial to the health of a franchise system, is why this recognition is such an honor. This achievement, in part, validates the relentless strength and integrity of the STOP brand.
