Skyhawks Named 2013 Military Friendly Franchise

Skyhawks announces it was ranked in the top 10 percent of all franchises nationwide and named a 2013 Military Friendly Franchise® by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs.

The Skyhawks company honors military veterans by offering service members $3,000 off the franchise fee, allowing veterans to use their background and training to launch a new civilian career.

"One in four returning service members indicate interest in owning their own business," said Sean Collins, director for G.I. Jobs. “Franchises are a perfect fit for service members, who bring unparalleled operational skill sets and work ethic but are often unclear how to start a business."

Being selected as a Military Friendly Franchise® places Skyhawks in an elite group and is testimony to Skyhawks' commitment to supporting military veterans interested in franchise opportunities."

The 2013 Military Friendly Franchises® list was compiled via a data-driven survey overseen by an advisory board of industry experts. The survey results list were independently tested by Ernst & Young based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media.
