To help U.S. Veterans become entrepreneurs and achieve their own American Dream of independent business ownership, Home Franchise Concepts (HFC) has dedicated $1,000,000 in discounts towards the purchase of one of its franchise brands (Budget Blinds or Tailored Living) through the Million Dollar Franchise Event. As a result of this incentive program, HFC is thrilled to welcome seven new Veteran franchisees to their team who are each translating the discipline, determination, and teamwork qualities they gained from serving in the U.S. military into growing their own business.

On Veteran’s Day 2013, HFC announced the Million Dollar Franchise Event—a commitment to give away $1,000,000 in discounts to U.S. Veterans interested in owning their own business and achieving the American Dream. In only 6 short months, HFC has reached the ¼ milestone of its goal and has given $250,000 in discounts to Veterans across the U.S.

U.S. Air Force Veteran Michael Dunn is a recent addition to the HFC family as a result of the Million Dollar Franchise Event. A 10-year military career afforded Dunn the opportunity to obtain a Masters Degree, spending the next 18 years in sales management in the computer hardware industry. Combining a severance package with HFC’s financial incentives for Veterans, Dunn was ready to pursue his dream of business ownership by purchasing a Budget Blinds franchise.

“Home improvement has always been a passion of mine, so I jumped at the opportunity to make a career out of improving the lives of other families through a window treatment franchise,” said Dunn.

With a history and passion for assisting U.S. Veterans and being recognized by Military Times and Franchise Business Review for achievements in supporting Veterans and Veteran-related causes, HFC’s Million Dollar Franchise Event continues the tradition by granting military Veterans of all backgrounds significant discounts off the purchase of a Budget Blinds or Tailored Living franchise. The ultimate goal of the Million Dollar Franchise Event is to award at least 30 Budget Blinds and/or Tailored Living franchises to deserving Veterans totaling $1,000,000 in financial discounts.
