TeamLogic IT Is a Top Franchise for Veterans
Former service members put a premium on well-thought-out strategies with clear directives, and they like what they see with TeamLogic IT
U.S. military veterans are ideally suited to go into business for themselves. They have the skill set, the values and the proven ability to follow systems necessary to become successful. Some choose to start their own company, while others look at opportunities like a TeamLogic IT franchise, because it satisfies many of their must-haves when it comes to owning and operating a business.
“We know that there are hundreds of franchises out there, from restaurant and retail to IT-related ventures,” says Chuck Lennon, President. “We have worked to make sure that the TeamLogic IT business model is clear-cut, lean and sensible. Whenever I meet with active or recently separated military personnel, they tell me that we really do stand out in a very crowded field.”
Discounts help with entry costs
Like any other savvy entrepreneur, a veteran wants a good deal. TeamLogic IT comes to the table right away in that regard, offering $5,000 off an initial franchise fee for any honorably discharged or retired military veteran.
“It’s easy for me to talk about the many differentiators and values that TeamLogic IT has, but people also want to talk money,” Chuck says. “That’s understandable. We decided early on that we wanted to pursue veterans as franchise owner partners, because they have shown a capacity for leadership. They also value the need to follow proven systems and processes, and so they are great partners for us as well as terrific bosses and community business partners.”
The discount is one of the many reasons why Franchise Business Review consistently names TeamLogic IT to its “Best of the Best: Top 100 Franchises for Veterans” list, which is based on interviews with veteran franchise owners about satisfaction and performance.
Managed IT services and other differentiators
Once the fiscal aspects have been discussed, however, Chuck does pivot quickly to the many ways a TeamLogic IT franchise owner can separate from any on-the-ground competitor.
“Managed IT services is a huge deal to veterans, because they understand the value of a regular, unchanging fee based on a service contract,” Chuck explains. “The ‘break-fix’ model of IT service and repair doesn’t hold water for them, because it’s too mercurial and unpredictable. Veterans, like all TeamLogic IT franchise owners, want a steady, predictable revenue stream. That lets them forecast out everything from new marketing initiatives to staff levels, and run the business much more smoothly.”
In the end, Chuck notes, “Veterans prize what we’ve built with TeamLogic IT. They see the unstoppable growth in technology, and recognize that we’ve positioned ourselves to be flexible enough to capitalize on it in many different ways now and going forward.”
TeamLogic IT is the technology franchise small and medium-sized businesses increasingly turn to for turnkey support. TeamLogic IT’s managed services contracts give clients peace of mind around their technology needs, and provide franchise owners with a steady, predictable revenue stream. TeamLogic IT now serves a wide and growing variety of clients in every business sector, from tourism and hospitality to healthcare, legal and accounting.
