MADISON, Ala., May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- WIN Home Inspection announces its achievement of being ranked in the top 10 percent of all franchises nationwide, and being named a 2013 Military Friendly Franchise® in both the general services and real estate listings by G.I. Jobs Magazine for the second year. At WIN, Veterans represent 1/4 of their company's franchisee base and they provide realistic opportunities for Vets to become successful business owners through the WIN for America program, in which veterans can qualify for Gold, Silver or Bronze level awards, allowing for 100%, 50% or 10% of their franchise fee to be waived.
To date in 2013, four veterans have been recipients of WIN for America awards:
- Marshall Davidson, Decatur, AL
- Bryan Haley, North Branch, MN
- Philip Morgan, Frisco, TX
- George Parra, Memorial, TX
On top of that, WIN works with the IFA VetFran Program and the Military Base Transition Program.
"Our business model has low capital startup costs, low fixed costs, high margins, and requires no brick and mortar. It's a proven success model," says WIN Home Inspection President, Steve Wadlington. "Central to this effort is our 'WIN for America' Award program, along with individual business planning. We are proud to give back to those who have served."
"The Military Friendly Franchises® list was created four years ago out of demand from military veterans, many of whom want to start or own their own business, but are unclear where to begin," said Sean Collins, director for G.I. Jobs. "Veterans make great franchisees in our business. Our most success and productive business owners are ex veterans."
The full list of Military Friendly Franchises® is published each June in G.I. Jobs Magazine, and on http://militaryfranchising.com, a web tool that helps veterans decide which franchise to choose.
