Between Rounds Bakery Sandwich Café, the bakery café and bagel shop with locations in South Windsor, Vernon, Manchester, and Tolland, Conneticut, announced it has been named a 2013 Military Friendly Franchise by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs.

The Between Rounds Bakery Sandwich Café company honors military veterans by offering service members a discount on the initial franchise fee of 50 percent of the regular $65K to $95K fee (a $1.2M investment total). This allows veterans to use their background and training to launch a new civilian career.

“One in four returning service members indicate interest in owning their own business,” says Sean Collins, director for G.I. Jobs. “Franchises are a perfect fit for service members, who bring unparalleled operational skill sets and work ethic but are often unclear how to start a business.”

Being selected as a Military Friendly Franchise places Between Rounds Bakery Sandwich Café in an elite group and is testimony to the company’s commitment to supporting military veterans interested in franchise opportunities.

The 2013 Military Friendly Franchises list was compiled via a data-driven survey overseen by an advisory board of industry experts. The survey results list were independently tested by Ernst & Young based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media.

"We're honored to be ranked among the top 10 percent of franchises nationwide,” notes Jerry Puiia, co-owner of the franchise. “You could not ask for a better franchise opportunity than Between Rounds.”
