The rankings come after participating companies “filled out a detailed survey, comprising more than 100 questions.”  In addition to the survey the franchises “submitted their most recent franchise disclosure documents, forms with required details on franchise cost and performance that must be given to prospective franchisees.”

Within the list of 43, there are alot of great benefits for military veterans.  For starters, all ranked franchises grant an average 18% discount rate for vets looking to open a business.  Also, 82% of franchises are apart of VetFran “an International Franchise Association group dedicated to veteran franchising issues.”
