There are currently more than 200 veteran franchisees who own more than 300 The UPS Store® centers. We’re committed to growing those numbers by providing business opportunities that help veterans thrive in their post-military careers.
The UPS Store® franchise discounts for veterans
The UPS Store, Inc. wants to help veterans realize the dream of franchise business ownership. To facilitate this goal, we offer special discounts for veterans as noted in our current Franchise Disclosure Document (“FDD”). The UPS Store, Inc. is a proud participant of the International Franchise Association’s (IFA) Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative (VetFran). This program allows veterans to get into franchising at a lower cost. Qualifying veterans through our VetFran program currently receive the following financial benefits:
- $10,000 discount off the initial franchise fee for a new qualified veteran franchisee’s first The UPS Store center, which center must be a traditional (non-rural) location; and
- 50 percent discount off the initial application fee for a new qualified veteran franchisee (applied toward the initial franchise fee).
We may from time to time also offer other incentive programs for veterans. See our current FDD for more information.
For The UPS Store, Inc. this assistance is no charity. As a veteran-led company, we have an intimate appreciation for the value vets bring to our franchise owner network.
At The UPS Store®, we are always seeking strong individuals who are ready to take on the rewarding career of franchising. I have seen firsthand how the drive and discipline gained in the military can be a great advantage for veterans looking to own their own business and open a franchise.
