WIN earns five-star ranking from VetFran
International Franchise Association honors WIN as a top-ranked franchise opportunity for military veterans
WIN Home Inspection is honored to be one of the first recipients of the International Franchise Association’s new 5-Star Rankings for top-performing franchise opportunities for military veterans. The rankings are part of the IFA’s VetFran initiative, which helps military veterans find franchise opportunities.
Around 25 percent of WIN Home Inspection owners have served in the United States armed forces. Veterans are a great fit for WIN Home Inspection as their talents and hard work fit well with WIN’s systems-oriented and scalable model.
“We’re blessed and honored to have so many WIN Strategic-Partners who served in the military,” said Steve Wadlington, WIN President. “We’ve found higher ranked veterans naturally have a total business-minded mentality. Once they join WIN, we then just help them to understand how our brand works. If you’re someone who’s not been in a leadership role, then the value you bring is you’re someone that understands process and can execute the plans that we have.”
Jason Vernier spent 22 years in the U.S. Navy and has found WIN to be a very veteran-friendly organization. The Fishers, IN, franchisee’s transition from the Navy to home inspection has been smooth due to both his military experience and the support WIN offers, he said.
“They make sure franchise owners have the right tools and they make it affordable for veterans to get into this business,’’ he said. “In my military experience, I represented the United States of America everywhere I went, 24/7, and I’m proud to now represent the WIN brand everywhere I go, 24/7.”
Red Shirt Friday
WIN is a strong franchise for veterans and our goal is to help them build successful business careers in civilian life. But we also take the time to thank all veterans for their dedication to the United States.
“On Fridays, we participate in the RED Shirt Friday national movement, which I’m very proud to be a part of,” Vernier said. “‘RED stands for Remember Everyone Deployed. Every Friday, we wear our red shirts as a sign that we are thinking about those veterans out there defending our country.”
WIN for America incentives for veterans
WIN offers special incentives to veterans in the form of our WIN for America program, which includes a 30% discount on the franchise fee for qualified applicants. We know that military service prepares veterans with the skill set and discipline they need to build a successful business, and we make it easier for them to get started with a WIN Home Inspection franchise.
In addition to the veteran incentives, franchisees can count on streamlined business systems and processes, marketing materials and a strong, supportive network, both at the WIN Home Office and with fellow franchisees.
