Veteran Franchise Opportunities
What if you could be a successful franchise owner of a nationally recognized brand, and one that supports military service women and men transitioning back into civilian life? There are 319 locations, owned by 213 franchisees in the United States.
Franchising USA Magazine states that, “Nearly nine in 10 veterans and active duty service members expect to have a second career after they separate from the military, according to a recent survey* conducted by The UPS Store®. With a strong desire to be their own boss, service members are interested in applying the skills they learned in the military toward owning a business. In fact, of those surveyed, 63 percent who envisioned a second career as a small business owner considered owning a franchise.”
“The skills veterans develop through their military experience, such as leadership, work ethic and discipline, are integral to pursuing a second career,” said Tim Davis, president of The UPS Store, Inc. and former U.S. Marine Corps captain and Gulf War Veteran. “The UPS Store franchise allows veterans to apply these skills to manage and run their own business. We are proud to support veterans and help fulfill their aspirations to be successful business owners.”
*The results of the survey are based on an online survey conducted October 6-9, 2015 by The UPS Store, Inc., franchisor of The UPS Store network, with members of the military. The online survey was conducted with 500 members of the military, including 250 active duty service men and women, and 250 veterans.

As a dedicated participant in the VetFran program, The UPS Store ranked #1 among veterans in 2008, awarding more veteran franchise opportunities than any other participating franchise company.
