One out of every seven franchise businesses are owned and operated by veterans of the U.S. military. * Is a Franchise Business Right for You?


  • Are you curious about what it takes to be your own boss?
  • Do you want some control over your future work and lifestyle?
  • Are you looking to build wealth for the future?
  • If you’ve answered yes to one or more of these questions, then franchise business ownership may be right for you!


We invite all Veteran’s and their spouses to join us for an informative one-day workshop to include:


  • The key differences between starting a business from scratch, buying an existing business or investing in a franchise business.
  • How do people fund a new business? What might the options be for me?
  • How might I fit into business ownership?
  • Get first-hand knowledge about what it is like to look for the right franchise from franchisees who have done it.
  • Learn from some franchisors how their system works.
  • Bring your questions!

Generously sponsored by Robert Jacoby.

This event is open to anyone who has served in the military.
