Franchise Opportunities for Veterans

To thank you for your military service, Neighborly offers discounts on franchise fees

Army, Navy, Air force, Marines—if you’ve served our country, Neighborly® has a special way to say, “Thank you!” All Neighborly home service franchise brands offer specially discounted franchise opportunities for veterans by participating in the VetFran program.

VetFran® is an initiative of the International Franchise Association (IFA) and the Franchise Education and Research Foundation (FERF). By lowering the barrier to entry, the program helps veterans become owners of any franchise brand that participates.

The impact of the VetFran discount program is awe inspiring:

  • There are more than 500 participating VetFran franchises.
  • Since 1991, more than 6,300 veterans have used VetFran discounts to start their own businesses.
  • Neighborly brand alone have helped nearly 400 veterans become franchise owners through VetFran, saving them more than $2 million collectively.

Why Veterans and Neighborly Are Such a Good Match

Neighborly’s founder, Don Dwyer, felt that military veterans were a great fit for franchise ownership. Why? Because veterans—like the best franchise owners—have developed discipline, leadership, and problem-solving skills within a proven system. Don Dwyer knew that many veterans were uniquely qualified to manage workforces, grow their businesses, and serve their communities.

All Neighborly brands have established business models that provide structure for veterans’ success journeys as franchisees. Our organization knows how important continued veteran support is. That’s why, in 2019, Dina Dwyer-Owens donated $250,000 to VetFran.
