Beef Jerky Outlet Ranks as One of America’s Top Franchises for Veterans Prestigious List Salutes Franchisors that Transform Troops into Proud Business Owners

KODAK,Tenn. (November 2017) – Beef Jerky Outlet, the country’s first national jerky franchise, proudly announces its ranking by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the top franchises for veterans. Beef Jerky Outlet ranked #12 on the list because of its stellar programs and incentives available to help veterans become franchise business owners. “Veterans dedicated their lives to serve and protect this country both here and abroad,” says Paul Lyons, President of Beef Jerky Outlet. “We in no way can fully repay them for their sacrifices as members of the U.S. Armed Forces. However, as they move to careers beyond the military, Beef Jerky Outlet strives to provide unmatched affordability for veterans and their spouses seeking franchise opportunities. We’re honored Entrepreneur Magazine recognizes our commitment to help veterans change their lives with the pride of business ownership.” Beef Jerky Outlet is proud to support our nation’s veterans as an active member of VetFran, which is an organization committed to providing access and opportunities in franchising for veterans and their spouses. Beef Jerky Outlet offers veterans a 50 percent discount off the initial franchise fee for their first store. In addition, Beef Jerky Outlet has a special fast-track program for veterans and is approved for SBA Patriot Express small business loan program. Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2017 Top 150 Franchises for Veterans ranking is based on each company’s veteran incentive (usually a franchise-fee discount), support by the company in the franchise-buying process, and the company’s ranking in the 2017 Franchise 500, the magazine’s yearly assessment on the health and growth potential of the country’s best franchises. “Veterans often make ideal franchisees, thanks to their strong leadership skills and abilities to work inside complex systems,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “We’re proud to highlight the franchisors that best connect with and support veterans, as they pursue the opportunity to own their own business.” To view Beef Jerky Outlet in the full ranking, visit Results can also be seen in the November 2017 issue of Entrepreneur Magazine available now on newsstands.
