OAKLAND, CA (June 23, 2014) - The World Franchising Network has compiled and published its fifth annual list of the “50 Top Franchises for Veterans.” The results were featured in the June 20, 2014 issue of USA TODAY in the Franchising Today section.

The World Franchising Network selected 50 franchisors from over 300 companies requesting evaluation for inclusion in the article. There was no cost to participate in the survey. Each participating franchisor was required to submit a completed questionnaire. The questionnaire noted both the absolute number of and the percentage of the total number of operating units owned or managed by veterans, as well as the number of veterans in senior management that earned over $80,000 per year. (For a copy of the questionnaire, click here.)

“The steady increase in veteran representation within the overall franchising community over the last several years has been extremely encouraging,” stated Rob Bond, founder of the World Franchising Network. “It certainly is clear evidence of the intrinsic values, invaluable experience learned through life's lessons, and the exceptional work ethic of our military veterans. Hopefully, this trend will continue in the years to come so that these fine young men and women can test their skills in franchising."
