Veterans – Win a 7-Eleven! Operation: Take Command is Underway!
It’s no surprise 7-Eleven has been voted best Veterans Franchise. Their President & CEO Joe DePinto is a Veteran! And now they have recognized that others who have served our military come into the workforce with the skills needed to run a successful business. Supply, administration, evaluations, and leadership expertise are just some of what it takes to make an operation thrive, and our U.S. veterans bring that to the entrepreneur space in spades!
In the past four years, almost 204,000 new vet and military spouses have started franchising careers and over 5,600 veterans have become franchise owners! In the past year alone over 50,000 vets have found jobs in the franchise industry and now, ranked #2 on Franchise Times list of 200 franchises and #1 Global Franchise by Entrepreneur Magazine, 7-Eleven is giving away a store to one deserving veteran through their OPERATION: TAKE COMMAND contest.
The franchise will be turnkey meaning 7-Eleven will provide the store, land and equipment. The extensive training support from franchise pros and gross profit split means they are invested in the success of your store. YOUR store. Has a nice ring to it, no? Start-up is fast and they will be with the winner every step of the way!
