In honor of Veterans Day, we will be hosting a face-to-face with franchisors event which will introduce Veterans to business ownership and the special programs available just to them. Proceeds from this event will be donated to MCVET Thank you for your support. Did you know that 1 out of every 7 franchises is owned by a Veteran? We would like to see that number continue to grow! FranNet of Washington D.C. & Maryland helps many entrepreneurs start businesses each year which includes the special mission of putting veterans back to work. Veterans have learned the skills of self-discipline, leadership and teamwork; they understand standard operating procedures and can follow systems, which makes them outstanding business owners. And, many experienced, talented Veterans are deciding to take more control of their careers, financial objectives, and personal goals by going into business. Not a Veteran? That's okay, you're invited to join us!
