Office Pride Giving Away a Franchise to Honor Veterans


Many franchises offer significant discounts and deals to U.S. military veterans looking to break into franchising. Completely waiving the franchise fee in a Veterans Day contest, however, is certainly a new angle.

Office Pride Commercial Cleaning is honoring those who have served their country with an initial franchise fee giveaway, a $35,000 value, for “up to three” qualified U.S. military veterans. The contest is open for any active service member or honorably discharged veteran from any branch of the U.S. armed forces.

To be considered, prospective franchisees must submit an essay on why the applicant would be a good fit as an Office Pride franchisee. They must also complete a franchise application, personal financial statement, and a spot-on assessment.

The commercial cleaning franchise said its made it a priority to seek out high quality veteran candidates for its franchises, and that veterans are generally a good fit for the system.

“The same qualities that allow someone to succeed as a member of our nation’s armed services often make them a perfect franchisee with Office Pride,” said Gerry Henley, executive vice president of Office Pride in a statement.

The entries are now closed, but watch for the winner come November 11.
