“The men and women who served in our military know how to follow direction and know how to work within a proven system. That’s why a franchising opportunity like On-Target is perfect for them,” said Mike Pappas, manager of sales and marketing for On-Target. “They know how to work hard and they know how to get results. We want to offer something extra to the men and women who have served our great nation. They deserve it!”
According to the National Center for Veterans Analysis and Statistics, there are over 23 million veterans in the United States today and over 200,000 rotate out into civilian life every year. President Obama also recently announced his plans to start a phased withdrawal of the 142,000 troops serving in Iraq, bringing the bulk of them home by the summer of 2010. And according to a study by the SBA Office of Advocacy, American veterans have a strong entrepreneurial spirit with 22 percent of veterans that are either purchasing or starting new businesses.
The skills and strengths that are learned while serving apply directly to success in business ownership. The SBA also has incentive loan programs for veterans retiring from military of service so the timing of this program couldn’t be better.
