May is National Military Appreciation Month; and with Memorial Day quickly approaching, Batteries Plus Bulbs would like to thank all the men and women who have served—and are still serving—our country. With nearly 10 percent of Batteries Plus Bulbs franchises veteran-owned, we are committed to supporting entrepreneurial-minded veterans in their transition back to civilian life.
To offer “vetrepreneurs” like Watts the opportunity to use their multidisciplinary traits and start a business of their own, Batteries Plus Bulbs offers an ongoing $10,000 discount off their franchise fee to qualified military veterans in select markets through Vetfran, a national program created to help military veterans become franchise owners. Additionally, Batteries Plus Bulbs is currently accepting applications for its new landmark veteran program called Ownership with Honor. The first-of-its kind program offers select qualified U.S. military veterans more than $210,000 in financial support to cover the bulk of cost of opening a Batteries Plus Bulbs store. This extraordinary opportunity, available for a limited time, equates to a nearly 85 percent discount off of the initial store investment. It also provides comprehensive training and ongoing support to help these veterans get their store up and running. If you or someone you know is interested in applying to this program, please visit the website to apply.
With nearly 1.5 million people expected to transition out of the armed forces over the next few years, many will look to franchising as a new business opportunity. As such, Batteries Plus Bulbs will continue its efforts to support and celebrate entrepreneurial-minded veterans.
Happy Memorial Day to all of the hard working veterans that are part of the Batteries Plus Bulbs family!
