Restaurant Chain Now Offering Franchise Incentives to Veterans
The fast growing breakfast and lunch restaurant chain Sunny Street Café recently announced a new partnership with VetFran, an initiative of the International Franchising Association. The agreement offers a financial discount to veterans who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“Partnering with VetFran has been a high priority for us, and we’re very excited to be a part of this great program,” said Scott Moffitt, President of Sunny Street Café. “We’re proud to offer the opportunity to own your own business to our military veterans.”
The new program through VetFran offers the ability to purchase a Sunny Street Café franchise at a 50% discount. The typical franchise fee of $35,000 will now be $17,500, with additional discounts for multi-store and area developer agreements.
“This partnership is great for all those involved,” Moffitt said. “It allows us to offer a significant discount as a sign of appreciation to our military service personnel. It also provides Sunny Street Café the ability to continue our expansion by providing opportunities to new business owners with tremendous leadership and systems skills.”
The International Franchising Association founded the VetFran strategic initiative in 1991. It includes over 580 IFA member companies offering financial incentives, training and mentoring to veterans interested in small business ownership and/or a career path in franchising.
