VetFran – Supporting the Cause
Growing steadily in popularity, the VetFran Program is supported by nearly 300 of the International Franchise Association’s 1,300 plus member franchise systems and has enabled more than 1,000 veterans to acquire franchises. In cooperation with the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs, with which the International Franchise Association has signed an official Memorandum of Understanding to jointly promote the program, VetFran also enjoys the support of the U.S. Small Business Administration and the Veterans Corporation.
To participate in the program, the participating IFA member-companies agree to help qualified veterans acquire franchise businesses by providing financial incentives not otherwise available to other franchise investors. You will get the “best deal” as a veteran. Information about each company and its “best deal” is available here.
The VetBiz.gov Assistance Program Pages (APP) is a National Electronic Clearing house of business-related help services. Veterans can obtain a wealth of information on critical small business topics, including startup, finance, training, procurement and business development.
This business resource directory further aids veterans by identifying business assistance programs on local, state and Federal levels. Also included are private and support sector organizations that offer support to veteran entrepreneurs. APP is available free of charge 24/7 worldwide.Back
