If you're like me, this might be for you.
I never really saw myself as a franchisee, but some good things that come along with it. For one, you're less likely to fail since there are more people with a vested interest. Also, buying into a franchise is like forking a repo that already has great docs, a proven track record, and people that can answer your questions.
Last month, Entrepreneur magazine put out Top 150 franchises that support veterans. The list ranges from home repair services to food venues, has several gyms and auto repair shops. Here's a shortlist of some that stood out to me.
|Franchise||Startup Cost||Franchise Fee||Vet Incentive||Why it made my shortlist|
|Jet's Pizza||$438K-$631K||$25K||50% off franchise fee or area development fee||The pizza is fantastic|
|FastSigns||$197K - $313K||$50K||50% off franchise fee||signage will always be in demand|
|Baskin-Robbins||$94K - $402K||$13K - $25K||first store franchise fee waived; reduced royalty fee for first 5 years||low costs, high margins, ice cream|
