G.I. Jobs Names the Liberty Tax Franchise Opportunity on its 2012 “Military Friendly” List
(Virginia Beach, VA) For a second straight
year, Liberty Tax Service is ranked one of G.I.
Jobs’ “military friendly franchises” in the June issue released May 15.
According to G.I. Jobs and its survey
results, the list represents “the top
10 percent of the nation’s franchises that are doing the most to recruit
military veterans.” The methodology for evaluation was based 40% for a
franchises’ success in recruiting military and veterans, 30% for the
franchise’s participation in veteran recruiting programs such as VetFran, and
30% for financial commitment to recruiting vets and helpful incentives.
“Veterans are used to following a
proven system, and many have been successful as Liberty Tax franchisees and
area developers. Franchising can be a natural fit and the next career move for
veterans exiting the military, and we strive to recruit more interested in the
tax industry,” said Liberty Tax Service CEO and Founder John Hewitt.
Through the company’s membership in the IFA and
its VetFran and MinorityFran programs, Liberty Tax offers an incentive to
finance a second territory if the franchisee is in compliance.
