"His lifelong dream of owning his own business is now being realized, and Boby chose Mr. Appliance in part, because of the great incentives they provide to former servicemen and women."
This excerpt from Moody on the Market is just another example of a Dwyer Group brand recognizing and appreciating the talents of U.S. Military veterans. Read this story about Boby Testini and how he is now living his dream of business ownership with Mr. Appliance.
The Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative (VetFran Program) was established by Don Dwyer, Sr.—founder of Dwyer Group—soon after the Gulf War ended in 1991. The VetFran program is a voluntary effort of International Franchise Association (IFA) member companies to encourage franchise ownership by offering financial incentives to honorably discharged veterans.
Since its inception, the VetFran programs have had the following affects:
- Dwyer Group of franchise companies has awarded more than $2.1 million in discounts to 374 veteran franchise owners.
- More than 500 franchisors currently participate in the program.
- More than 6,300 veterans have acquired a franchise business through the program.
