Going above and beyond is something that Golden Chick prides itself in doing as part of our customer service and our franchisee support. But the efforts of our nation’s veterans and first responders are a true inspiration. We’re honored by their service and are proud to offer a unique restaurant franchise opportunity for veterans and first responders that can help place them — and you, if you’re a veteran — on the path toward small business ownership. It’s our way of saying thank you for your service. Now, let us serve you!
Veterans and the Franchise Model: A Great Fit
According to the Small Business Administration, veteran self-employment is 45% higher than the rate of non-veterans. The study also shows that one in every ten veterans will start their own business or firm. If you’re ready to join these ranks, Golden Chick may have a golden opportunity that’s right for you.
Our Golden Chick Veterans Program acknowledges your heroism by helping you move down the path toward entrepreneurship. This partnership program is just one small token of our appreciation and a way that we can salute all who wore the uniform in service of our country, as well as those who serve their communities as EMTs, firefighters, medical professionals, and law enforcement personnel.
As a member of VetFran—an initiative meant to transition veterans into franchising—we’ve structured our Veteran’s Program to include a significant discount on our franchise fee to honorably discharged veterans. It’s important to acknowledge the debt we owe to franchisees from a military background. Our support helps position veteran owners for success.
It includes the use of the Golden Chick brand name, trademarks, slogans, and effective marketing materials and programs. You’ll also find support from our Franchise Advisory Committee. This committee gives franchisees a voice on key issues and many other benefits that provide guided assistance throughout a veteran’s franchise journey.
A Premier Restaurant Business Franchise Opportunity for Veterans and First Responders
As a veteran or first responder, you’re most likely not a stranger to leadership and responsibility. These are values that are highly sought after in our Golden Chick franchise partners. Additionally, the concepts of duty and honor show strength of character that transition well in the business world. Best of all, through our franchising opportunities, we have the resources to help you hit the ground running! Our franchise model can offer greater opportunities for entrepreneurs who seek a quicker route to success than going it alone.
With over 210 franchise locations nationwide, Golden Chick is one of the fastest-growing quick-service restaurant brands in the South and Southeast. With your experience and leadership capability, our franchise support team can help you transition the attributes you learned wearing the uniform into effective business management and growth strategy.
Golden Chick is a brand with solid name recognition and more than 50 years of dedicated service to the communities we enter. We’re proud of providing healthy food options at reasonable prices, which sums up our motto: The Original and Still the BestTM. It’s a philosophy we know many veterans and first responders can identify with and appreciate!
