It takes a lot to earn the title “veteran” in the U.S. Armed Forces. So when these men and women come home after putting their lives on the line for the sake of our country, they deserve to be recognized for their service. Batteries Plus honors veterans and the sacrifices they have made by offering easy access to franchise ownership.
Recently placed in the 2012 Military Friendly Franchises® List, Batteries Plus is getting national attention for its efforts. This list represents the top 10 percent of the nation’s franchises that are doing the most to recruit military veterans. Based on their research, the G.I. Jobs Military Friendly Franchise team determined that our company was successful in recruiting military and veterans, were financially committed to this effort, and had excellent programs and policies in place for our veteran employees.
“We fully support veterans and the dedication they give to our country,” said Russ Reynolds, President and CEO of Batteries Plus. “While serving in the military, veterans have learned the importance of following a plan to achieve a central mission. Likewise, as a franchisor, Batteries Plus sets up operational guidelines and structure for our owners using our tested franchise model to help them run their business. Some of our most successful multi-unit franchise owners are those that have come from the armed forces.”
Veterans can put their well-earned leadership skills, motivation and discipline to work by taking advantage of the Batteries Plus franchise opportunity.
According to Angel Cartagena, veteran of the Air Force and owner of the Batteries Plus in Union, New Jersey, “Batteries Plus is very military friendly and their franchise model was superior to other systems I saw in the franchising world. Their organization, leadership, business practices and business values compliment the work ethic and values I took away from my military training.”
Batteries Plus is a participating member of the Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative (VetFran), a national program coordinated by the International Franchise Association (IFA) to help military veterans become franchise owners. Veteran franchisees get commercial sales training, marketing /media advertising and business development tools.
Additionally, in past years we have teamed up with USA Cares, a nonprofit organization that helps post-9/11 military service members, veterans and their families with basic financial needs. Its “Time to Care” campaign goal raised awareness about USA Cares and their Jobs for Vets program. The campaign also raised funds to help veterans get placed back into the work force after serving their country.
Batteries Plus is offering a $10,000 discount to qualified military veterans in several prime markets. By joining us, veterans and civilians alike have the opportunity to work in an exciting atmosphere with endless sales opportunities driven by the growing consumer and business demand for batteries and light bulbs.
