Why Military Veterans are Drawn to Franchising

JD and Britney Lott fell in love in Afghanistan — Britney was with the Air Force Reserves and JD was an Army soldier on his second deployment. After returning to the United States and getting married, they wanted to start a career that they were passionate about and that would appreciate their military experience.

Why The Little Gym is a Great Investment for Veteran Franchise Owners

The Benefits of Franchising

Contrary to popular belief, many of our franchise owners don’t have a formal business education. Thanks to an extensive network of owners and a proven business model, franchising provides entrepreneurs with the tools needed to learn how to operate a business. By shortening the learning curve, owners are often able to enjoy financial stability quicker than if they were to build a business from the ground up.

Characteristics that Drive Business

Military veterans and successful business owners share a lot of the same characteristics — they’re both organized, driven, and passionate about physical fitness.

After years in the military, many veterans are looking for more than just a job. According to JD, “Britney and I wanted a sense of community, being active, connecting with other people and having a great environment in which to work; and we wanted more control. We wanted work to not seem like work.”

For United States Veterans and Active Duty Military, Reserves, National Guard and Coast Guard, The Little Gym International, Inc. is offering a 50% discount off of the franchise fee when opening a gym in the U.S. Savings may vary.
