Ziebart International Corporation Supports Military Veterans in Entrepreneurship

Troy, Michigan (PRESS RELEASE – July 3, 2011) – Ziebart International Corp. offers a unique franchise opportunity for military veterans in the automotive business sector. Ziebart has been recognized for efforts by supporting veterans and has recently been included on the Military Friendly Franchises Top 200 list for 2011.

“Out of respect for their dedicated service, for returning military veterans looking to become a franchise owner and start their own business, Ziebart International will waive 100% of the $25,000 license fee for those who qualify,” states Thomas E. Wolfe, CEO of Ziebart International Corp. “Another great benefit offered to military veterans is through the assistance that the corporation provides to the business staff when the franchise owner is called back to guard or reserve duty.”

Since 1964, Ziebart International Corp. has been a dedicated member of the International Franchise Association, or IFA, which also offers incentives through the VetFran program (Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative) and is currently recruiting qualified veterans to acquire franchise businesses.

  1. I am curious to know what they provide if the owner is called back to service? if it is just phone support that should be available to the employees of the franchise anyway. It would seem cost prohibited for them to put someone onsite to help run the business. It does seem like they are going out of their way to attract veterans as franchisees though.
