In honor of Presidents’ Day, Pizza Patrón is launching its ‘Veterans Por Favor’ program. The program waives all franchise fees for veterans on their first restaurant with the chain.
“The ‘Veterans Por Favor’ program was formed to show our gratitude and appreciation for the hard working, blue collar men and women of our armed services,” says Victor Vazquez, vice president of business development for Pizza Patron Inc.
The program is for qualified, honorably discharged veterans. It fully waives the $20,000 in franchise fees for the first restaurant to give veterans an enormous boost into business ownership with a rock-solid 30-year-old chain.
“Our experience with veterans within our corporate organization strengthens our belief that military training often provides veterans with the skills and discipline needed to operate successfully within a franchise organization,” Vazquez says. “By eliminating franchise fees, the cost of entry may come down just enough to put owning a business within the reach of many otherwise qualified candidates.”
The ‘Veterans Por Favor’ program is now being offered and is slated to run through the end of 2016. Development opportunities exist throughout Texas in both major and tertiary markets, and exclusivity is available in select markets.
Pizza Patrón is coming off its best year in company history, and recently announced the relaunch of its franchise program. The chain has more than a decade of experience in franchising and has grown over the years with a strong core of seasoned franchisees. Pizza Patrón provides franchisees with extensive training and support, as well as turnkey development, including assistance in site selection, tenant representation, architectural plans, construction, and store launch. Pizza Patrón franchisees also benefit from commodity pricing negotiated direct with manufacturers, longstanding relationships with vendor partners, and an operating system that has been refined and strengthened more than 30 years of business.
