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.

Franchise Disclosure Documents
The Franchise Disclosure Document(FDD) and its older counterpart the Uniform Franchise Offering Circular (UFOC) is a document describing the relationship between franchisor and franchisee which sets forth particular terms and conditions for the relationship. As of 2007 the Federal Trade Commission changed their regulations so that franchises would have to update their paperwork from UFOCs (old version) to FDDs (new version). Overall the document contains detailed information about the franchisor and the franchise organization structure as a whole.
The Franchise Site & Franchise Location Selection Worksheet
Identifying the major traffic patterns, the availability of parking close by, the cost of utilities, the rent per square foot and various other aspects are just a few of the factors to consider when locating your franchise site.
Breaking Down Royalty Fees
When people think of the costs of opening a franchise they typically just think about the franchise fee. That makes sense, seeing as the franchise fee is typically a substantial cost, ranging from a few thousand to a few hundred thousand dollars. But, this isn't the only payment a franchisee needs to make to the franchisor. Once operations start a franchisee typically needs to pay some form of ongoing royalties to the franchisor.
