VetCor® Offers Perfect Opportunity And Innovative Training For Veterans Transitioning To Business Ownership
VetCor®, the segment-leading commercial and residential water and mold restoration company, might just be the perfect business opportunity for veterans looking to start a new career following their years of military service. Not only does VetCor® offer a proven franchise model with a successful track record but it also provides unparalleled training opportunities to its franchisees – including a new training academy, online webinars, and certifications.
The restoration marketplace is a lucrative and fast-growing franchise opportunity space. VetCor® sits at the top of the list of superior providers. Here are some numbers that illustrate what makes VetCor® a solid investment opportunity:
- Water damage and mold costs the insurance industry a staggering $2.5 billion dollars per year. Forbes cited it as “one of the most common and most costly types of homeowners insurance claims,” accounting for almost 24% of all homeowners insurance claims, according to the Insurance Information Institute.
- 14,000 people in the U.S. experience a water damage emergency at home or work each day, and 98% of basements in the country will suffer from some type of water damage during their lifetime, according to industry estimates.
“With our tested and proven franchise model, VetCor® franchise owners enjoy significant expansion potential,” says Mike Long, VP Franchise Development for VetCor®. “40% of our franchisees started with one location and within their first year of ownership, are now multi-territory owners in several markets across the U.S.”
Water and mold restoration services require properly trained technicians who understand how to do the job. That’s why the company just launched its VetCor® Training Academy to attract, train, certify, and prepare the next generation of VetCor’s military franchisees to properly service customers’ needs.
VetCor® has gained accreditation as an approved school by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). VetCor® can conduct specific IICRC-approved courses and proctor examinations for certification and incorporate the certification as a Water Damage Restoration Technician (WRT) into the Phase II technical training for its franchises, making franchisees ready for the job on Day 1. The company’s regularly scheduled WRT courses also provide existing franchisees with the ability to get new technicians trained and certified in accordance with VetCor® and IICRC standards. VetCor® has also been offering Franchising 101 webinars through various organizations such as the Service Academy Career Conference and VETtoCEO.
“Obtaining IICRC certification for the VetCor® Training Academy has been a priority for us and we can now say ‘Mission Accomplished’,” said VetCor’s Chief Operating Officer Scott C. Walden, an IICRC-certified instructor. “As an IICRC-approved program, we now have benefits that will greatly enhance the recruitment of certified technicians, as well as speeding up the process for getting VetCor® franchisees up and running as quickly as possible.”
From providing essential services to daily homeowner challenges as well as in the aftermath of weather disasters such as hurricanes and floods, to offering emergency deep cleaning and disinfecting services for homes and businesses impacted by COVID-19, VetCor® Franchising is poised to experience continued growth.
VetCor® Franchising is a franchise opportunity uniquely positioned to attract military veterans who are transitioning from the service back into civilian life. The company is owned and staffed by U.S. military service members - it’s a business run by veterans, for veterans.
