As Mr. Rooter President and VetFran Chair Mary Kennedy Thompson says, “Veterans are good for franchising, and franchising is good for veterans.” But how do you find the vets? Franchisors and franchisees can participate in hiring fairs co-sponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with Hero 2 Hired (H2H), an online platform. It’s all part of the Veterans Employment Advisory Council effort, of which IFA is a member. The effort will mark its 100th hiring fair with “Hiring Our Heroes – Philadelphia” Friday, March 2. To date, the fairs have connected 90,000 veterans and military spouses with more than 4,600 different employers. More than 8,000 veterans have landed jobs.
