Prestigious G.I. Jobs Magazine List Places International Firm in Elite 10% of Franchise Brands

May 14, 2013 – (KANSAS CITY, Mo.) – United Country Real Estate has once again been ranked in the top 10 percent of all franchises nationwide and named a 2013 Military Friendly Franchise® by G.I. Jobs Magazine. United Country is among only 10 percent of franchise brands nationwide to receive this honor. The 2013 Military Friendly Franchise® list, which represents the top 10 percent of the nation’s franchises that are doing the most to recruit military veterans, is determined through exhaustive research by the G.I. Jobs Military Friendly Franchise team. The research includes a comprehensive survey of more than 4,000 franchises.

“One in four returning service members indicate interest in owning their own business,” said Sean Collins, director for G.I. Jobs. “Franchises are a perfect fit for service members, who bring unparalleled operational skill sets and work ethic but are often unclear how to start a business. Being selected as a Military Friendly Franchise® places United Country in an elite group and is testimony to international firm’s commitment to supporting military veterans interested in franchise opportunities.”

The 2013 Military Friendly Franchises® list was compiled via a data-driven survey overseen by an advisory board of industry experts. The survey results list were independently tested by Ernst & Young based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media.

United Country’s military veteran franchise program provides discounted franchise fees, start-up assistance and training programs. The program is available to veterans who are qualified real estate brokers, or those who have a spouse who is a qualified broker. Sales agent opportunities are available within the company’s franchise offices across the nation. Veterans interested in opening a franchise office or information on sales agent positions can learn more by calling 800-999-1020.

“The foundation of a successful real estate business hinges on honesty, discipline and a strong work ethic; the same qualities that embody our military professionals,” said Mike Duffy, president of United Country Real Estate. “The real estate profession has so much to offer veterans, including self-employment, flexible hours, work variety, unlimited income potential and the ability to be of service to others.”

The full list of Military Friendly Franchises® is published each June in G.I. Jobs Magazine, and on MilitaryFranchising.com, a web tool that helps veterans decide which franchise to choose. Additional resources are posted on the Military Friendly Franchises® Facebook page: Facebook.com/MilitaryFranchising.
