With unemployment rates high among veterans, franchises like Drive N Style are offering business opportunities through VetFran.
While unemployment rates among U.S. veterans have slightly decreased since 2011, where they were at a post-recession peak of 12 percent, they still sit at 1 percent above the rate of civilian unemployment throughout the U.S. And the statistics for those veterans aged between 18 and 24 are even higher, with an unemployment rate of 17.3 percent for males in this age bracket.
While the government has put into place a number of measures to help deal with this, it takes franchises, like Drive N Style, to also take part. Drive N Style is a part of the Driven Brands family, one of the world’s largest automotive franchisors of multiple concepts, with 1,400 franchisees worldwide.
Drive N Style is represented by ALLSTATEFF.COM, who specialize in assisting people to find the ideal franchise that matches their personal and financial needs. ALLSTATEFF.COM represents over 250 franchise brands, including the number one provider of vehicle appearance and enhancement services, Drive N Style.
“When matching a potential business owner to a franchise, it is important for us to understand who you are, your past skills, your desired lifestyle, and your future goals. The focus on any franchisor is not to ‘sell’ a franchise, but ‘award’ a franchise to a person” said Derek Cafferata, CEO of ALLSTATEFF.COM
“One of the great things about Drive N Style is that they offer a 25 percent discount off the initial fee for veterans who qualify through VetFran” said Derek. “Veterans often make for excellent franchisees. They are good at taking orders, they work well within a business model and are effective and motivating, managing and leading.”
VetFran is a voluntary program with the aim of helping veterans smoothly transition from the military back into civilian employment roles. Since VetFran was started back in 2002, more than 2,000 veterans have taken advantage of the program.
Drive N Style is one of a number of franchises that offer incentives through the VetFran program. Others include Dunkin’ Donuts, Circle K, Matco Tools and Vanguard Cleaning Systems.
Derek believes that with Drive N Style offering the VetFran program to potential veteran franchisees there will be a very good response to their recruitment drive. “Combine this with Drive N Style’s world class training, ongoing field support and extensive business building tools, it is a great recipe for success for those who are willing and fit well with the Drive N Style franchise model” said Derek.
According to ALLSTATEFF.COM, the great thing about a Drive N Style franchise is that no automotive experience is required. A successful candidate simply needs to have a strong business background with great sales skills, able to demonstrate that they can build and maintain relationships with prospective and existing customers.
