Why Veterans Choose Commercial Landscaping Franchise

As a service man or woman leaving military service, finding a career and transitioning back into civilian life is one of your top priorities. Finding the right fit for your post-military goals and life is important as you exit the service, which is why some veterans are opting for commercial landscaping franchise opportunities.

Investing in a commercial landscaping franchise gives you the chance to work outdoors, use the skills you learned in the military, and lead a team, all with the help and support of a proven system (just like you are used to!).

Don’t Get Stuck Behind a Desk

When you are fresh out of the military, chances are you are used to doing physical work that is new and different every day. Commercial landscaping franchise opportunities give you the opportunity to keep doing that, especially for the first few years when you are building up your business, prepping employees, and establishing a reputation.

A few years on, you will be able to take a bit of a step back and start working on your business instead of in it. This is a great, natural progression for veterans who want to eventually transition into less physical work as they get older.

Use Your Military Skills

Military service teaches some valuable skills that service men and women use in their personal and professional lives. Those skills – problem solving, planning, integrity, technical skills, communication, and so many more – translate well into business ownership. These skills that are essential in military operations also are quite useful when you are running a team and setting goals for your business.

Be a Leader

A critical skill that service men and women learn is leadership, which is key if you are going to own and run your own business. The right leadership makes all the difference in any business, which is why veterans are so well-suited to franchise ownership.

Being a leader is more than just telling a team what to do, as any military member can tell you. Leading a business means that you will value your people, work as a team, and create a great company culture.

Benefit from the Network

The sense of camaraderie that comes with military service stays with veterans for the rest of their lives. Commercial landscaping franchise opportunities not only let you build that sense of camaraderie with your own employees, but you also get to work with an entire network of people. A franchise network worth joining will come with the support of a corporate network, individual business mentors, and fellow franchisees. All of these people are at your disposal to teach you everything you need to know about owning and operating your own business.

On top of that, a great franchise should have tools and resources at your disposal. Just like the military had training and ongoing support to keep you on top of your game, a franchise opportunity should give you that same kind of initial preparation and continual support where you need it.

We are a great fit for vets like you who are looking for an outstanding network and an exciting business opportunity. Contact us to find out if you have what it takes to be a U.S. Lawns owner.
