PrideStaff Named Top Franchise for Veterans by Entrepreneur Magazine
November 13, 2018 // Franchising.com // PrideStaff, a national, franchised staffing organization, is pleased to announce that they were named to Entrepreneur’s 2018 Top Franchises for Veterans. The list was created based on scores franchises received in Entrepreneur’s annual Franchise 500® ranking, as well as the incentives and other programs they offer to help veterans become franchisees.
This latest recognition is the fourth PrideStaff has received from Entrepreneur this year. In addition to making the Franchise 500® Ranking and list of Top 100 Franchises for Less Than $150,000, PrideStaff also distinguished itself by being named an Entrepreneur 2018 Top Franchise Brand.
To honor their veterans, and as an incentive for more veterans to join their system, PrideStaff is increasing its discount from 25 to 50 percent off of its franchise fee. The Top Franchises for Veterans ranking distinguishes organizations that go above and beyond to offer the best opportunities for veterans interested in becoming franchisees, taking into account the ways those companies attract and incentivize potential veteran franchisees, as well as how they scored in the 2018 Franchise 500.
"We’re extremely proud to make Entrepreneur’s ranking of Top Franchises for Veterans," said PrideStaff Founder and CEO George Rogers. "Our organization works hard to provide the incentives, processes, technology and support veterans need to successfully launch and run their own business."
"PrideStaff's unique franchise model is a great fit for former members of our armed services, allowing them to apply the operational execution and excellence they learned through their military service to their role as a Strategic-Partner," continued Rogers. "We are honored to support careers in franchise ownership for individuals who have sacrificed so much to serve our country."
Vice President of Franchise Development, Paula Pizzaro, echoed Rogers' sentiment. "Qualities like discipline, sound decision-making, persistence and a willingness to take on new challenges make military veterans amazing business owners," stated Pizzaro. "We are proud to welcome veterans as Strategic-Partners and encourage those franchisees to hire veterans as well."
The success of PrideStaff's approach is evident, as they consistently rank among the highest 1% of staffing firms in the industry. According to Inavero, a business intelligence firm specializing in the staffing industry, PrideStaff earned a client Net Promoter® Score (NPS) as high as or higher than other well-known brands such as Amazon and Netflix.
