Exiting franchisees are part of the life cycle of franchising. Buying an established franchise means that everything is in place and you can hit the ground running with a mature business which has a significant cash flow in place, building from there. You will be benefiting from someone else’s hard work and using it as your own starting point to develop the business further. (also available on Friday and Saturday, 3:30 PM)

Veterans have a proven track record of success in franchising. Franchises run on systems and offer training and support, just like the military. In franchising, you're in business "for" yourself, but not "by" yourself. That's why there are over 70,000 veteran-owned franchise establishments in the United States. Learn from veterans and business leaders in franchising how to get started in this exciting industry.
