We were very excited to announce that for the second year in a row we achieved a listing as a Military Friendly Franchise®. This list represents the top 7 percent of the nation’s franchises that are doing the most to recruit military veterans.
It is determined by the G.I. Jobs Military Friendly Franchising team in conjunction with a Military Friendly Franchise Advisory Board, who help determine the survey questions and weightings. The survey focus areas include a franchise’s success in recruiting military and veterans, programs and policies that measure a franchise’s non-financial effort to recruit and retain military and veterans and financial commitment to recruit and retain military and veterans.
Here is what our VP of Franchise Development, Jim Brown had to say about our accomplishment: “Comfort Keepers’® systematic business model and approach to care, known as Interactive Caregiving™, are both good fits for long-term success of both the veteran and the franchise according to Jim Brown, Vice President of Franchise Development, CK Franchising, Inc. “Comfort Keepers is proud to work with the men and women of the U.S. Military who choose to continue to service their communities as a senior care franchise owner after their military commitments are honored.”
Demetrius Flenaugh, of Sugar Land, TX is just one of many Comfort Keepers franchisees with a former military career. Flenaugh is a 20 year U.S. Army Veteran. He and his wife Arecia, who is currently active duty deployed in Afghanistan, recently joined the Comfort Keepers franchise system. “We knew that we wanted our post military career to be in the senior care industry because we enjoy helping others,” said Demetrius. “We researched the industry for five years and decided that Comfort Keepers was the right fit for us because of its excellent reputation and the support and ongoing training opportunities available for franchisees.”
