Restoration 1® Veteran Franchisee Receives Award For Hiring Veterans

November 28, 2018 // // WACO, Texas - Local Springfield Restoration 1® franchisee, Corey Graves, was awarded the 2018 Gold Award for the HIRE Vets Medallion Program by the Department of Labor for recruiting, employing and retaining veterans for his small business.

“Franchisees like Corey are the reason our business is successful,” said Gary Findley, CEO of Restoration 1. “As a long-time supporter of the VetFran program, our organization is passionate about giving our military veterans a pathway to business in the civilian world, and Corey brings that same passion to his Springfield location. Corey is a great representation of Restoration 1, and this award is proof of that.”

Graves is a veteran himself, serving in the Army for 21 years before returning to civilian life. After the Army, Graves wanted to own his own business. He got connected with a franchise coach, and that’s how he learned about Restoration 1.

“Running a Restoration1 franchise is the perfect fit for me as I’m able to help people in the Springfield community,” said Graves. “I’ve been committed to hiring veterans to work alongside me and find success after the military. It’s an honor to receive this prestigious award, and show my community that we are a veteran-friendly business.”

Entrepreneur Magazine recently named the Restoration 1 franchise a 2018 Top Franchise for Veterans. To learn more about Restoration 1, visit
