VetFran franchises are springing up all over America.

Nearly 200 franchise companies that are members of IFA participate in the Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative, known as VetFran, which offers veterans a "best deal" through discounts or other incentives. Each company determines its own "best deal."

As the program gains popularity, veteran-owned franchises are popping up all around the United States. Nearly 500 veterans have acquired small business franchises through the program since 2002, and more than 120 are in various stages of negotiation.

VetFran is recognized by the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs, which recently honored IFA with a Support Sector Champion Award for expanding business opportunities for veterans. The U.S. Small Business Administration and the Veterans Corporation also assist in promoting the program.
