Ziebart Recognizes Military Veterans Make Great Franchise Partners
Military veterans are well-suited to the franchise business model. According to the IFA’s VetFran program, 14% of U.S. franchise owners are now veterans. One out of seven is significant number.
No franchise brand out there has a greater respect for veterans than Ziebart, the worldwide leader in premium automotive appearance and protection services that extend the life of vehicles.
The brand has a long history of working together with military veterans who have become successful franchisees after their service. Veterans like Nick Lambie. He spent time as an Air Force Weapons Director before becoming a Ziebart franchisee in 2019. He says his military training helped develop his leadership style and the importance of paying attention to detail. Both of which have helped him excel as a Ziebart franchisee.
“Nick exemplifies all of Ziebart's core values of Honesty, Passion, Innovation, Teamwork and Legacy,” said Ziebart International Corporation President & Chief Executive Officer, Thomas A. Wolfe. “The leadership skills and attention to detail he learned in the military has definitely transferred over into how he runs his Ziebart business.”
Military veterans are great leaders who are disciplined, know how to delegate, understand the importance of culture, and can follow the system. They are simply equipped to succeed. As such, they make perfect candidates for becoming Ziebart franchisees. That’s why the brand not only looks for franchise prospects who have a record of military service, but offers a discount for all U.S. military veterans interested in becoming Ziebart franchisees. As further incentive, the brand even waives the initial franchise fee for veterans.
As Veterans Day recognizes and honors all U.S. military veterans, Ziebart salutes their service and sacrifice and encourages veterans across the country to take a look at the business opportunity Ziebart offers.
For more than six decades, Ziebart has been a force in automotive aftermarket franchising. The company now boasts more than 400 locations and 1,300 service centers in three dozen countries. The brand’s success has been documented in Entrepreneur Magazine as a Top 500 Franchisor, a Top 200 Global Franchise, #1 in its category, and one of 2021's Hottest Franchises.
