To honor the men and women who have served in the U.S. Military, the International Franchise Association launched the Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative (VetFran). VetFran is a voluntary effort of International Franchise Association member-companies that is designed to encourage franchise ownership by offering financial incentives to honorably discharged veterans. To date, more than 388 franchise companies participate in the program. Their company profiles, as well as the financial incentives they offer to veterans can be viewed on their web site.
