Franchise Business Review named Kampgrounds of America, a system of campgrounds, to the list of Top 100 Franchises For Veterans.
The U.S. Labor Department estimates 1.5 million service members will be leaving active duty over the next five years. Purchasing their own franchised business has long been held as a sound financial plan for returning veterans.
Kampgrounds of America Inc., with 490 locations throughout the U.S. and Canada, is routinely named to Franchise Business Review’s annual list of Top 50 Franchises.
“If you would like to be your own boss, have structure, serve others, and leverage many of the skills you learned while in the service, franchising may be for you,” said Emma Pearson, editorial director at Franchise Business Review. “A franchise owner enjoys the benefits of being in business on his own, but with the support of an entire team dedicated to making sure he is successful. This support and team mentality is similar to what you experienced while serving.”
KOA Vice President for System Development Chris Fairlee said Kampgrounds of America is an ideal business opportunity for veterans.
“We have many KOA franchise owner who are service veterans,” Fairlee said. “Our franchise offers owners a way to work ‘on’ their business, and not just ‘in’ their business. We have a multitude of support systems in place to help, and a large family of peer owners to help guide the way.”
