With veteran unemployment rates higher than the national average and tens of thousands of service men and women returning from deployment, TeamLogic IT is awarding up to 10 franchises to qualified military veterans by waiving the $40,000 franchise fee.
The program is open to the first 10 U.S. military veterans who apply and qualify for a TeamLogic IT franchise between January 1 and December 31, 2012 through the International Franchise Associationâ€™s (IFA) VetFran program.* This $400,000 investment demonstrates the national computer services franchiseâ€™s commitment to supporting U.S. veterans through VetFran, a program designed to help veterans transition back to civilian life and explore opportunities in franchise ownership.
â€œThe unemployment rate amongst veterans is already high and with so many more coming home, TeamLogic IT is committed to providing opportunities to our nationâ€™s veterans to smoothly transition them into civilian life,â€ said Chuck Lennon, president of TeamLogic IT, who is also the vice chairman of CompTIA, a non-profit trade association advancing the global interests of information technology (IT) professionals and companies. â€œThis new program will provide veterans with the tools, resources, and personnel necessary to launch and develop a TeamLogic IT business. Itâ€™s the least we can do for the men and women who sacrifice so much to preserve our freedom.â€
