Top 10 Reasons You Should Apply to FlipFlop Dogs’ Veteran Franchise Giveaway

 

ProfilePictureWhether you are a veteran, or know of a veteran, or just stumbled upon this page, these reasons should give you more of an explanation as to why it would be a terribly mistake to not apply to win a FlipFlop Dogs franchise. Enter to win by October 12th!

 

  1. Dream Up Your Career Success. As a veteran, you have worked incredibly hard to defend your country and keep us all safe at home. Now, it’s time to focus on your homeland career and start living out those wild and crazy dreams of owning your own business. Becoming a franchisee with FlipFlop Dogs means that you are able to have your own business, but not take the complete risk of starting from scratch. You deserve to have the fulfilling, “looking-forward-to-waking-up-on-Monday” career and this giveaway gives you that opportunity.
  2. Enjoying the Slobbery Kisses Throughout the Day. Everyone has seen the articles and studies about how dogs are beneficial to be around. Whether you are a veteran or not, our brains are altered (for the better) when dogs are by your side. Dogs allow us to focus on caring for others and remind us of what really matters. (Plus it’s hard to be sad or angry when there is a dog looking up at you with those adorable puppy eyes). There is really no better customer than a dog. As a FlipFlop Dogs franchisee, you are interacting with customer’s dogs daily, and getting to know their personality while registering them for a vacation. Or you are picking up a dog at their Companion’s home in time to greet their owner with a wagging tail. There are numerous touch points throughout the day where you will smile and realize how much you love your job because there is an adorable dog by your side.
  3. Applicable Experience From Training. Veterans do not have the same background and experience, but what we do know is that you are all extremely hard workers, work well with a team and excel in following a process. These qualities are directly applicable to becoming a successful franchisee. We admire your dedication to our country and value the skills you obtained during your tenure. Your characteristic and traits will greatly help you in becoming a successful FlipFlop Dogs franchisee.
  4. No Experience Required. One of the great benefits about franchising is the opportunity to switch career paths without having any previous industry experience. Although you are coming along with the useful skills you acquired within military training, we do not expect you to know everything about dogs or how to run a FlipFlop franchise. You may be a dog lover, but don’t know how to run a dog business. Whatever it may be, we are fully prepared in training and supporting you throughout the lifetime of your business. There is no better way to start your career as a business owner than having the guidance of the franchisors, and existing franchisees as a network. The FlipFlop Dogs franchise has all of the tools, software, process, etc in place for you already. By winning this Veteran Franchise Giveaway, you will receive all of this free of cost.
  5. Become a Homebody. With the months and years spent away from home, it’s time to kick back and relax. The FlipFlop Dogs franchise is set up to be fully operational from your home. That being said, no customers, Companion Families or other business partners will enter into your home. Franchisees do not have a storefront since they operate by picking up dogs and taking them to their matched Companion Family. Our process is mobile (and paperless) for you to enjoy rolling out of bed in your pajamas as you look over your schedule for the day. Let us know if that doesn’t sound ideal to you and we can figure something out :).
  6. Flexible Equals Happiness. Remember when you had to be some place exactly when someone told you or you would get in trouble? Well, we thought it was time to mix it up. Forget the “9-5” hours as our franchisees operate with a flexible schedule, based on their availability. We do anticipate you working a 40 hour work week, we just feel that people should be able to choose a little based on what hours they operate best on. By entering in the Veteran Franchise Giveaway, you can say goodbye to the demanding boss who wants you in the office, at your desk, at 8AM sharp!
  7. Free! Free! Free! We could go on and on as to why we love the FlipFlop Dogs model or why we believe veterans would make the best franchisees, but this one reason should come with only positive reactions. It’s free! Entering in the contest is free and winning is free. If you can come up with an excuse as to why you shouldn’t enter, then you might want to get your head checked out. You are taking zero risk by applying for this giveaway. If you win, you will have the incredibly opportunity to be given the rights to a branded franchise without the burden of the franchise costs. Seriously, start your application now at the Veteran Franchise Giveaway Page. The application requires basic information to make sure you are a real person and a compelling essay to explain to us why we should pick you as the winner of the $48,000 FlipFlop Dogs Veteran Franchise Giveaway!
  8. There is An “I” In Franchising But….. You will never be alone when you are working as a franchisee in the FlipFlop Dogs network. Franchising is a great way to be in business for yourself, but not by yourself. You will always have a fellow franchisee to turn to if you are having problems, or to your experienced (and dedicated) franchisors. We even have a Social Media/Marketing Guru to help you get your feet off the ground and continue to drive business in, without breaking the bank. You are able to call a number of resources at anytime to gain helpful information and guiding you in the right direction. Failure is not the option.
  9. Becoming Independent. Waiting around for that raise from your boss is so last year, building your own success and profit margins is your future. Owning a FlipFlop franchise means that you are the one bringing in your business and building the brand locally. If you want to make more money, great! We will give you more tools to expand your business. We know how to bring in success and will coach you in explaining our proven methods. As a FlipFlop Dogs franchisee, we will help to keep you on track toward reaching your financial goals with our bi-weekly check-ins.
  10. Once In A Lifetime. The reason we started this is to show our gratitude to our incredible veterans. We would love to be able to give back to you each one of you, but we realize that’s not possible. The reason to act on this Veteran Franchise Giveaway RIGHT NOW, is that this will be the only one we do. We will not be doing this annually, or centennially, this opportunity is happening now and your chance in entering is closing in. Enter by OCTOBER 12TH to be considered in our Veteran Franchise Giveaway and read up on all of the Rules and Regulations. Please contact us at: contest@FlipFlopDogs.com if you have any questions. Now hurry and get your application in before it’s too late!

Our Valuation of a Veteran

Calendar Posted on Sep 09, 2014 by tmiltz

Why We Started the Veteran Franchise Giveaway

FlipFlop Dogs will be giving away a franchise to one honorably discharged veteran, as a small token of our appreciation and gratitude for all they have done for our country.

 

The numbers are astonishing. With more than 21 million veterans in the U.S., there are over 200,00 that are unable to find a job. The statistics are a tragedy and could be considered an embarrassment to our nation. After all our veterans have sacrificed for us, allowing Americans to feel safe at home while they are out there sacrificing their lives; the least we could do is provide them with homeland financial security when they arrive safely home. We are unsure as to how our admirable, dedicated veterans became a staggering statistic of unemployment. At FlipFlop Dogs, we noticed and decided to take action.

 

The number of veterans unemployed or dissatisfied with their careers vastly outweighs our franchises ability to make the largest difference. From a franchisor perspective, we felt that our gratitude would best be served in helping a veteran build a successful business, without having to worry about hardships of acquiring assets for an investment fee. Franchising serves as an appropriate opportunity to allow veterans to learn from our three-day training, be supported along the way, receive any guidance needed, and having less risk than starting a new business.  We are looking for enthusiastic, hard-working, dedicated veterans who aspire to own their own business and willing to put in the time and effort to build their success. These veterans are not hard to find, as they make up the most diligent and preserving men and women of our country. Without them, we wouldn’t be the country we are today. Our mission of providing a veteran with this opportunity to build their success, with an established business model, started with two great men from our family- our fathers.

Jack and I’s fathers served in World War II and the Korea War, respectively. Hearing of their struggles as they returned back to civilian life, came with a heavy heart. Both of our fathers were fortunate enough to become successful business owners, and we believe their military training gave them a strong foot forward. Their confidence, persistent attitude and perfecting their business process led them being our role models. We would like to return the favor and recognition by giving their fellow veterans a piece of career achievement., as your experience and skills are very valuable.

 

From all of here at FlipFlop Dogs, we thank you for the sacrifices you made for our country. Whether you enter this Veteran Franchise Giveaway, or find your career in another place, we hope you find happiness, success and security in civilian life. Enter for the giveaway, before September 21st, by visiting our Veteran Giveaway page. Please email us at: contest@FlipFlopDogs.com if you have any questions about how to enter or on your submission.

Dogs Provide Hope, Guidance and Business

American Pride - Dog with Flag Bandanna

How can dogs help in making the transition to civilian life easier on veterans?  In general, petting a dog can lower one’s blood pressure and curve loneliness. Dogs have the ability to put a smile on our face when we are sad, angry and frustrated (even if it’s because they chewed on our brand new boots). Dogs will love and give us hope when no one else does. For these reasons, among others, veterans benefit from having a dog around. Some veterans are fortunate to receive trained service dogs to accompany them through daily hardships, by bringing a calming affect while knowing how the veteran feels during certain situations.
