FlipFlop Dogs: Why We Started the Veteran Franchise Giveaway
FlipFlop Dogs will be giving away a franchise to one honorably discharged
veteran, as a small token of our appreciation and gratitude for all they have done for our country.
The numbers are astonishing. With more than 21 million veterans in the U.S., there are over 200,00 that are unable to find a job. The statistics are a tragedy and could be considered an embarrassment to our nation. After all our veterans have sacrificed for us, allowing Americans to feel safe at home while they are out there sacrificing their lives; the least we could do is provide them with homeland financial security when they arrive safely home. We are unsure as to how our admirable, dedicated veterans became a staggering statistic of unemployment. At FlipFlop Dogs, we noticed and decided to take action.
The number of veterans unemployed or dissatisfied with their careers vastly outweighs our franchises ability to make the largest difference. From a franchisor perspective, we felt that our gratitude would best be served in helping a veteran build a successful business, without having to worry about hardships of acquiring assets for an investment fee. Franchising serves as an appropriate opportunity to allow veterans to learn from our three-day training, be supported along the way, receive any guidance needed, and having less risk than starting a new business. We are looking for enthusiastic, hard-working, dedicated veterans who aspire to own their own business and willing to put in the time and effort to build their success. These veterans are not hard to find, as they make up the most diligent and preserving men and women of our country. Without them, we wouldn’t be the country we are today. Our mission of providing a veteran with this opportunity to build their success, with an established business model, started with two great men from our family- our fathers.
Jack and I’s fathers served in World War II and the Korea War, respectively. Hearing of their struggles as they returned back to civilian life, came with a heavy heart. Both of our fathers were fortunate enough to become successful business owners, and we believe their military training gave them a strong foot forward. Their confidence, persistent attitude and perfecting their business process led them being our role models. We would like to return the favor and recognition by giving their fellow veterans a piece of career achievement., as your experience and skills are very valuable.
From all of here at FlipFlop Dogs, we thank you for the sacrifices you made for our country. Whether you enter this Veteran Franchise Giveaway, or find your career in another place, we hope you find happiness, success and security in civilian life.

Should Franchisors Consider Private Equity Investments?
How can you be sure it’s the right choice for you? We asked Glen Kaufman, Managing Director at American Securities, a private equity firm with a consistent track record in the industry. The middle-market firm invests in companies with revenues ranging from $100 million to $1 billion.
But she's doing it: Can franchisors treat franchisees differently?
So, what do you do, then, when your fellow franchisees start using rougher towels, or take the milkshake off of the menu? Now all of a sudden some of the inherent value in your franchise is gone. Your hotel chain is seen as declining in value, and out-of-towners stay away because they think that you, too, have taken their favorite milkshake off of the menu.
