There are many pursuits military personnel can partake in once they become veterans. For example, they can engage in community service work, or even adopt a hobby they’re passionate about. In honor of National Armed Forces Day on May 18th, Budget Blinds– the largest window coverings franchise company in the nation – believes there is one pursuit in particular that military veterans are already well prepared for; starting their own franchise business.

Larry McDaniel, a Budget Blinds franchisee and Marine Corps veteran, had this to say about the franchise business opportunity:

“I can tell you firsthand that being in the military instills valuable traits in an individual that will pay dividends during their entrepreneurial pursuits. Traits such as integrity, teamwork, commitment, and determination, can all be directly applied to the business environment and will have a great impact on the success of their franchise company.”

“Starting my own Budget Blinds franchise business was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made,” said Larry Sportello, a veteran of the US Navy and current Budget Blinds franchisee. “The Budget Blinds business model is thorough and effective, and the team at the corporate office has been there to support me every step of the way. The best part is it’s a home-based business which allows me to spend more quality time with my family.”
