Calling all U.S. Veterans! Have you ever considered owning your own franchise store? If you are at all interested or know someone who might be, keep reading and share this with as many people as you can as I am about to tell you about an amazing opportunity from 7-Eleven!
Joe DePinto, President and CEO of 7-Eleven, is a military veteran himself and wants to help get vets in the door of owning their own franchise store. The contest opened 11/11/2014 and closes 1/25/2015.
Did you know that in the past four years 203,890 new veterans and military spouses started franchising careers, with 5,608 vets becoming franchise owners? In the past year alone, over 50,000 vets have found employment in the franchise industry! And with 7-Eleven being voted the top Veteran franchise, it is a great place to get your dreams started!
As a military veteran and military spouse myself, this opportunity hits close to home as it provides military vets with a chance to change their life. My dream is to be a writer and I use my blog to help make my dream a reality. For those of you interested in owning a franchise store, this is a chance at your dreams worth taking! I always say the answer is always ‘no’ if you don’t ask. So why not take a leap of faith and enter? Maybe you will be the lucky winner.
