While thousands of franchise systems are actively recruiting U.S. military veterans to become franchisees, many fall short of proving a good fit for military personnel.
One way for our service men and woman to navigate through the plethora of franchise opportunities is to turn to respected publications for rankings on the best brands for veterans. Recently, the Real Property Management franchise, the nation's leading full-service property management organization, was named to not one, but two, lists of America's top franchises for veterans.
Each year, Entrepreneur Magazine puts out a call to companies ranked on their annual Entrepreneur Franchise 500 list, to learn more about their veteran programs. From there, the magazine develops a ranking of the top 150 franchises for veterans, taking into account each company's veteran incentives, support systems, and company rankings in the Franchise 500. This year, Real Property Management came in at No. 105 on the list.
Franchise Business Review, a national franchise market research firm that performs independent surveys of franchise owner satisfaction, recently conducted an assessment on franchise brands to identify which veteran franchisees show the highest level of satisfaction. As a result, Real Property Management was selected as a 2017 Top Franchise for Veterans, proving its veteran franchisees are pleased with the training, support, leadership and financial opportunity of the brand.
"There has been steady increase in veteran representation within the franchise community over the last several years – validating that the industry is a great place for our military personnel," stated Lukas Kraus, CEO of Real Property Management. "Being recognized on two prestigious publications' lists as one of the best franchise opportunities for our service men and women is an honor and we are proud to offer a chance at business ownership to those who have served our country."
