Veterans Look to Matco Franchises For Post Military Success

According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, there are 22.7 million living U.S. Veterans, and their ranks grow by 200,000 each year. Matco Tools is proud to be part of a prestigious business group that helps to transition veterans to successful franchise ownership after military service.

As one of the top 10 most popular franchises for military veterans according to the most recent VetFran survey, the International Franchise Association's Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative, Matco Tools has been committed to ongoing support of those who have served our country.

"As Veteran's Day approaches, we are reminded of the sacrifices made by our military personnel," said Ernie Lauber, senior vice president of sales. "We want to extend our thanks with $5,000 of incentives when veterans join our franchise family." To date, Matco boasts 230 veteran franchisees like Adam Blair, former sergeant in the United States Marine Corps, and a Matco Tools franchise owner since 2008. Blair, a recipient of the Purple Heart and Navy Achievement Medal with Combat Distinguishing Device, leveraged the discipline learned during his four years in the military to drive successful business practices in his Matco Franchise.

"The self-discipline and motivation I learned in the military was a key to my success as a Matco distributor," said Blair. "It's a rewarding experience to start your own business, run it day to day and see it grow and thrive. Matco was the right choice for me as a business owner and now as a field sales representative for Matco, I help others achieve their dreams of success."
