We at Spring-Green would like to take a moment to thank all our military veterans, past, present and future, for all they have done in service of our nation and our way of life. We are lucky to have many veterans who have contributed to Spring-Green’s success throughout the years, both in corporate leadership positions—like Navy veteran and Spring-Green chairman Tom Hofer—and as franchise owner operators.
As members of the International Franchise Association’s VetFran program, a program developed during the Gulf War in the 1990s, Spring-Green’s military history is evident throughout the franchise organization. Having a program that helps Veterans achieve the American dream just makes sense. Spring-Green has multiple Veteran-owned franchises and our organization employs hundreds of veterans and reservists. We believe that experience in the military can prepare you for business ownership. After all, Veterans have had to make hard decisions under very difficult circumstances; they have shown discipline to follow a proven formula, a willingness to work hard and a strong belief in core values.
For qualified military veterans, Spring-Green will apply up to $5,000 of the initial franchise fee to be used towards start-up expenses that we designate or approve.
This year we were also named one of Victoria Media’s 2013 Military Friendly Franchises. In large part we owe it to our many wonderful military veteran owner operators, a set which includes Bruce Mohns, Jeff Anderson, Kevin Holker, Jim Hoelsworth, Matt Denney, Lenny Geibel, Mike Bell, Roger Grose, Pat Mahoney and Scott Humphrey. We are proud to count you as part of our Spring-Green family and wish you, and all other military members and veterans, a Happy Veterans Day.
