Beef Jerky Outlet Co-Founder Featured on YAHOO! Finance
Paul Lyons, CEO and Co-Founder of Beef Jerky Outlet, the nation’s leading premium jerky retailer, recently appeared on YAHOO! Finance. The interview was conducted via SKYPE on Veterans Day. Paul discussed Beef Jerky Outlet’s support of our nation’s veterans and the company’s recent ranking on Entrepreneur’s 2018 List of Top Franchises for Veterans.
Why Was Beef Jerky Outlet Named a Top Franchise for Veterans?
Beef Jerky Outlet was recently ranked 13 on Entrepreneur’s 2018 list of top franchises for veterans. This ranking was determined by analyzing each eligible company’s veteran incentives, how veterans are attracted to the company and how much on-going support the franchise offers veterans.
Beef Jerky Outlet was named as a top veteran-friendly franchise for a variety of reasons. Beef Jerky Outlet is an active member of VetFran, an organization committed to providing access and opportunities in franchising for both veterans and their spouses. Beef Jerky Outlet also offers a 50 percent discount off the initial franchise fee for a veteran’s first store, has a special fast-track program for veterans and is approved for the SBA Patriot Express small business loan program. Finally, Beef Jerky Outlet is proud to offer veterans and first responders 10 percent off of their order when shopping at participating locations. These veteran-specific programs, paired with continued commitment to our nation’s heroes, led to Beef Jerky Outlet’s recent recognition by Entrepreneur.
Why do Veterans Make Great Franchisees?
Beef Jerky Outlet is proud to support and work with veteran franchisees across the country. Beef Jerky Outlet actively seeks out veterans because they often have a fine-tuned, military-built skill set that lends itself to franchising. Veterans are natural leaders and have a unique ability to motivate their team while still adhering to important brand standards. Veterans also tend to be driven individuals with a fantastic work ethic. That natural inclination towards hard work, as well as the inherent scalability and easy entry of the business model, makes franchising an exciting opportunity for veterans of all ages.
