Meanwhile, you can get to know a couple of our veteran Franchise Partners and hear how the skills and experience they acquired in the military helped them become owners and succeed with WOW 1 DAY PAINTING. Mike Sandness and Marc Novak are both veterans in our franchise system, and when they retired from active service, they realized they wanted a new outlet for their leadership skills.
2.5 million small businesses in the US are owned by American Military Veterans. Franchise ownership in home services in particular offers freedom and flexibility that other franchise systems (like restaurants or stores) don’t. Our veteran franchise partners aren’t stuck behind a counter or desk all day; they’re out in the field interacting with customers and employees.
The military provides the perfect foundation for exceptional franchise owners. Veterans know how to lead teams, work with proven systems, and have the passion, integrity and driving force to succeed — no matter what. A franchise also relies on established systems, and requires the same level of diligence and leadership applied to serving their country.
