Closet & Storage Concepts is delighted to be named among the recipients of the 2012 Military Friendly Franchises® list, which represents the top 10 percent of the nation’s franchises that are doing the most to recruit military veterans.
The full list of Military Friendly Franchises® will be published in the June issue of G.I. Jobs, the July/August issue of Vetrepreneur Magazine, and on www.militaryfranchising.com, a web tool that helps veterans decide which franchise to choose.
Closet & Storage Concepts honors military veterans all year round by offering service members a 10% discount on franchise fees, special military veteran financing of 50% of the initial fee for a period of 12 months at zero interest, and a team dedicated to supporting the veteran franchisee program, thus allowing veterans to use their training and operational skills in a new civilian career.
The Military Friendly Franchises® list was created three years ago out of demand from military veterans, many of whom want to start or own their own business but are unclear where to begin,” said Sean Collins, director for G.I. Jobs. “Being selected as a Military Friendly Franchise places Closet & Storage Concepts in this elite group, and is testimony to Closet & Storage Concept’s world class programs and policies that support military veterans interested franchise opportunities”
