Jun 6, 2011

Houston, TX - (June 6, 2011) – Link Staffing Services was recently named one of the top “Military Friendly Franchises” by G.I. Jobs Magazine for the second year in a row.  Featured in their May issue, the list honors franchisors that offer the best incentive programs aimed at recruiting United States military veterans for franchise ownership. 

The list was compiled through extensive research in which G.I. Jobs polled thousands of franchise organizations nationwide.  The “Military Friendly Franchises” list serves as a guide to veterans who are looking for franchise opportunities.  It identifies the companies that provide the best cost benefit and training opportunities, and it recognizes franchisors with the largest number of military veterans currently in their system.

Link Staffing Services offers a 25% reduction of the initial franchise fee to qualified military veterans.  Link is also a member of the International Franchise Association’s (IFA) VetFran Program, which helps to promote special franchise opportunities to veterans.

“Offering special incentives to veterans gives Link the opportunity to add quality franchisees to our system,” said Michelle Bearden, vice-president of franchise operations at Link Staffing.  “Link has a strong concept and solid systems to offer potential franchisees, along with a commitment to our values.  This makes us a good match for veterans looking for a great franchise opportunity. “
