PuroVet Program Offers Career Opportunities & Support For Aspiring Veteran Entrepreneurs
PuroClean, a National Restoration and Remediation Franchise, Supports Military Veterans with an Opportunity to Serve Their Community and Enjoy an Affordable, Profitable Business
November 11, 2019 // Franchising.com // Tamarac, FL - According to a study by VetFran, a strategic initiative of the International Franchise Association (IFA) with more than 6,000 member companies, 97 percent of franchisors believe veterans make excellent franchise owners. In honor of Veteran’s Day, PuroClean - a leading national restoration and remediation franchise - is sharing some of the important ways veterans are ideal candidates for their business, and elaborating on the support the company provides veterans to naturally transition into entrepreneurship.
“As a veteran myself, I am proud to be part of a company that proactively seeks ways to support those who have honorably served our country,” said PuroClean COO and President Steve White, a veteran U.S. Army Captain and member of IFA’s VetFran committee. “Veterans already have the skills and tools to earn great success as PuroClean franchise owners, and our PuroVet committee works tirelessly to continue making PuroClean the best choice for veterans as they begin their second career."
Ranked as one of the top 50 “2019 Top Franchises for Veterans” by Entrepreneur magazine, PuroClean launched its esteemed PuroVet program in 2017 to help military personnel to transition into PuroClean business ownership and connect with veterans inside and outside its franchise system directly. While many franchise veteran programs only offer discounts to veterans without extended year-round support, PuroVet operates on the core belief that veterans are ideally suited as PuroClean franchise owners, with the following three top advantages, and provides a specialized support structure to facilitate long-term success:
- Servant’s Heart & Leadership - A core part of PuroClean’s culture and philosophy, servant leadership is second nature for veterans. By helping individuals in their local communities during unfortunate times (fires, floods and other instances causing property damage) and managing a team of expert technicians, PuroClean franchise owners practice servant leadership every day while enjoying a profitable business.
- Pillar of Hope During Emergencies - When property owners and managers are faced with unexpected damage, PuroClean franchise owners serve as a source of stability. Veterans have experience being a pillar of hope for their country, which effortlessly translates to serving customers during a time of need as PuroClean franchise owners.
- Teamwork Makes the Dream Work - Veterans are accustomed to working in close-knit units and teams that strive towards a collective mission. The PuroClean franchise operates in the same way. Veteran entrepreneurs benefit from having a dedicated support team who are available 24/7 to promote the success of their business, including a regional director personally assigned to their franchise and the online PuroClean Academy with supplemental resources. Many corporate employees are veterans themselves, including White, helping further facilitate a unique sense of camaraderie.
PuroVet operates year-round with dedicated support programs. Most recently, PuroVet launched its second annual franchise giveaway, offering military veterans the chance to receive a franchise with the initial franchise fee of $50,000 waived. PuroVet also offers veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces a discounted rate of 25 percent off the initial franchise fee - a savings of $12,500 - and has secured additional savings for veterans from MatchU Franchising, who will reduce their commission by 25 percent for all veterans the company matches with PuroClean, as well as from other vendors who provide discounts for products and services. PuroClean franchise owners benefit from high-quality training at the company’s $1.5 million state-of-the-art training facility, some of the largest territories in the industry, and a strong community network of franchise owners.
PuroClean has become one of the leading restoration franchise companies in the nation. Each year, PuroClean performs thousands of jobs throughout the United States and Canada, providing restoration services from common household mishaps to large-scale disasters.
