IFA VetFran survey: Veteran-owned franchises soar to more than 2,000

According to IFA's just-completed VetFran survey, 2,089 franchises have opened since the program began. "In this time of economic uncertainty, IFA encourages veterans seeking the American dream of starting their own small business to consider owning a franchise business and taking advantage of the financial incentives offered by participating member companies in the VetFran program," said IFA Chairman Ken Walker, CFE, chairman and CEO of Driven Brands.

VetFran was re-established following the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Since then, nearly 400 IFA-member franchise systems have volunteered to offer financial incentives to help honorably-discharged veterans become franchise small-business owners. The participating companies and the discounts they offer can be viewed at under “Franchises for Veterans.
