Franchises as an option for returning Veterans with Bill Williams
Today, there are many alternatives to working for someone else from buying an existing business, starting one or being a franchisee. Bill Willams of Axxiom Franchise Advisors, LLC, in his segment of the program, discusses the advantages of being a franchise owner and the misconceptions people have regarding franchise and franchise brokers. Not limited to just muffler shops and fast food, franchises almost any business one can imagine.
Active with Veterans groups in the area and a Vietnam Veteran himself, Bill discusses at length the coming wave of service personnel re-entering the civilian world and why they have skills that make a franchise an excellent option for finding a new career. (Note, they also bring skills and maturity that any employer would be delighted to see in their candidates so it’s not just franchises who would like to see Veterans in their ranks.)
Learn how the franchise community and other organizations have developed special plans to make owning a franchise affordable for our returning Veterans through substantially reduced fees, financial assistance programs and more.
