VIEJO, Calif., May 15, 2012 – TeamLogic IT, a leading national
provider of comprehensive computer-based services for small and medium-sized
businesses (SMBs), has been named a top Military Friendly Franchise®
by G.I. Jobs magazine for 2012.
The magazine’s prestigious Military Friendly
Franchises® list identifies franchises that demonstrate the best
military recruiting practices in the nation. This honor ranks TeamLogic IT in
the top 10 percent of all franchises nationwide.
“Being named as a top Military Friendly Franchise
is very humbling,” TeamLogic IT President Chuck Lennon said. “Our nation’s
veterans have sacrificed so much to preserve our freedom. Providing them with
an opportunity that
will help smoothly transition them into civilian life and the working world is
the least we can do. Our veterans program provides veterans with the tools,
resources, and personnel necessary to launch and develop a TeamLogic IT
Recognizing the high unemployment rate among
veterans and challenges they face in returning to civilian life, TeamLogic IT launched
its veterans program in January 2012. The program waives the $40,000 franchise fee for up to 10 qualified U.S. military veterans throughout 2012.
With a focus on “veterans
hiring veterans,” the program includes a partnership with CompTIA—a
non-profit trade association advancing the global interests of information technology
(IT) professionals and companies—and
its Creating IT Futures Foundation to leverage its IT-Ready Apprentice Program,
which will help these new franchisees hire trained technicians who are also
military veterans. Additionally, the program will financially support
franchisees by subsidizing all costs associated with technician recruitment,
training, certification, and online mentoring.
“The Military Friendly
was created three years ago out of demand from military veterans, many of whom
want to start or own their own business but are unclear where to begin,” G.I. Jobs director Sean Collins
said. “Being selected as a Military
Friendly Franchise places TeamLogic IT in this elite group, and is a testimony
to its world class programs and policies that support military veterans
interested in franchise opportunities.”
The Military Friendly Franchises list is determined
through extensive research by the G.I.
Jobs Military Friendly Franchises team, which included a comprehensive
survey of more than 4,000 franchises. The survey questioned the following key
areas in each franchise system: the number and percent of veteran-owned
franchises, programs and policies in place that measure a franchise’s
non-financial efforts to recruit and retain military veterans, and a
franchise’s financial efforts to recruit and retain military veterans.
