Proforma Ranked Top 100 Franchise Opportunity For Veterans

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

Proforma is proud to announce it has been recognized by Franchise Business Review as one of the Top 100 Franchise Opportunities for Veterans. Proforma was ranked #7 overall and recognized as a Best of the Best company.

"It is an honor to be recognized by Franchise Business Review as a Top Franchise Opportunity for veterans," said Greg Muzzillo, Founder of Proforma. "Veterans deserve the opportunity to pursue their dreams and our mission at Proforma is to help our Owners' dreams come true. We are continually adding and improving the wide variety of tools and support we offer our Owners. These resources help veterans achieve success in their lives after the military."

In 2012, Proforma launched a program offering $2 million in business grants to 100 honorably discharged veterans. This initiative was created to make owning a business more affordable and accessible, and provide 100 veterans seeking new business ventures with the unique opportunity to start their own franchises at a steeply discounted cost. The standard $19,500 franchising fee for new Proforma Owners outside the industry is waived, requiring qualified veterans to invest only $4,500 for a custom veteran's fast-track marketing kit to help get their businesses up and running. Proforma is also a member of VetFran, a program sponsored by the International Franchise Association to give honorably discharged veterans better incentives than other qualified investors.

The Franchise Business Review surveys thousands of franchisees each year to measure satisfaction levels related to their franchise ownership experience. Survey questions cover topics including training and support, system quality issues, franchisor relationships and financial opportunities as they relate to overall satisfaction.

Proforma is a $430 million industry leader offering each Proforma member a full suite of tools including access to award winning marketing campaigns, a newly enhanced technology platform, financial backing, free credit insurance, the buying clout that increases their profits up to 5% - 15% with a proven vendor network and more.
