GYMGUYZ Ranked One of the Top Franchise Concepts for Veterans by Entrepreneur Magazine

For the third consecutive year, the mobile fitness franchise was recognized for its incredible veteran support.

PLAINVIEW, N.Y. (PRWEB) November 14, 2018 - Entrepreneur recently released its list of the Top Franchises for Veterans, recognizing the top 150 companies with the greatest veteran support structure across North America. Among those honored was international mobile fitness concept, GYMGUYZ, making the list at number 46, for its third consecutive year of recognition in the category.

Entrepreneur’s 2018 Top Franchise Veterans ranking is based not only on the incentive offered to veterans for joining the concept, but also considers the best opportunity for veterans interested in becoming franchisees. Appearing on the list is a testament to each brand’s commitment to help returning military members find the business of their dreams, and GYMGUYZ’s repeat appearance exemplifies the focus they put on this cause year after year.

“We have one of the most competitive franchise offerings in the industry for veterans looking for a strong operational support system. Our goal is to provide these men and women with all of the necessary to succeed as they transition back into civilian life and jump start their careers,” said founder and CEO of GYMGUYZ Josh York. “Recruiting veterans to join the GYMGUYZ family has been an important part of our growth since we began franchising in 2014. Their commitment to improving the lives of others is inherent, and those are the types of people we look to bring into our system.”

As a proud partner of VetFran, GYMGUYZ offers former men and women who served in the armed forces the opportunity to join the brand at a $5,000 discount. At an affordable rate, veterans are able to join a franchise system that gives them access to a strong corporate support team while reaping the benefits of entrepreneurship. GYMGUYZ has seen through existing veteran owners the number of admirable qualities they bring to the franchise system, built on existing military experience and leadership traits including familiarity with structure, dedication and strong values.

“When I left the Army, I knew I wanted to continue helping people and doing the things I love most, like spending time with my family. GYMGUYZ provided me with the perfect opportunity,” said Jacksonville GYMGUYZ franchisee Anthony Zurisko. “Their flexible business model allows me to be home, which is extremely important to me having spent six years in the Army including two deployments to Iraq. And, owning my own franchise has given me the ability to hire on other military veterans that are just as passionate about fitness and the well-being of those in our community. It was a win-win.”
