Veteran Benefits Franchise Opportunity Guide

SOP (standard operating procedure) is a term well understood by anyone who has served in the armed forces. It refers to a plan, a system, a step-by-step method for how a particular mission or function will be carried out. Veterans understand the importance of following a plan to successfully execute a mission and capitalize on every opportunity. This systematic approach to achieving goals is very similar to the franchising model of doing business and it's why more and more veterans are taking advantage of franchise opportunities after returning to civilian life.

VetFran a program created in 1994 and sponsored today by the International Franchise Association was formed to help veterans achieve ownership of a franchise business. Today VetFran continues to offer incentives to honorably discharged U.S. veterans, and many franchisors participate in the program.

Check out the veteran-friendly franchise brands below, many of which participate in the VetFran program.
