Give a Veteran a Fresh Start with the 7-Eleven Franchise Giveaway

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of 7-Eleven Franchising for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

At the end of September, our lives were forever changed when my husband got out of the Marine Corps after 11 years. I can tell you from personal experience that this transition can be exciting and scary, and well...just overwhelming! And I'm only the wife! Though things are starting to settle down a bit here, the transition out of the military can certainly be one filled with many questions. The biggest one being: What are we going to do NOW?

7-Eleven knows the hard work and dedication that our U.S. veterans have shown (their President and CEO, Joe DePinto, is himself a military vet) and have come up with a fantastic opportunity for one very lucky veteran...the chance to win their very own franchise!!

Let's take a look at a few key points about veterans and the franchise industry:
  • 7-Eleven has been voted Best for Veterans Franchise
  • In the past four years: 203,890 new vet and military spouses have started franchising careers, 5,608 vets have become franchise owners
  • In the past year 50,000+ vets have found employment in the franchise industry
As you can see, this can truly be a great field for those getting out of the military, and this promotion makes it even easier for military vets to own their own FranchiseIt's turnkey, which means they provide the store, land, and equipment. The winner will receive extensive training and support from the franchise pros, and a gross profit split means they're invested in the success. And start up is fast – only 3-6 months -  with help from the experts through it all. Sounds pretty great, doesn't it? So, how do you enter? Follow these easy steps:
  1. Enter – fill out form on website to enter
  2. Apply – apply through January 25, 2015
  3. Finalists announced – top finalists will be announced in March 2015
  4. Make a video – finalist will create an impressive video explaining why they should be the winner
  5. Videos are posted to Facebook – all finalist videos will be posted to the 7-Eleven Franchising Facebook page
  6. America votes – the top three are flown to Dallas for a final interview
  7. We have a winner! – the 7-Eleven franchise winner is announced April 13, 2015

If you are or know a veteran who could use a fresh new start after their military career has come to a close, enter for yourself or spread the word. Our military veterans have worked hard and deserve this fantastic opportunity. Visit OPERATION: TAKE COMMAND to learn more.
