A Top Franchise for Veterans

Monday, November 24, 2014

This month, one of the world’s leading retailers of printing services and supplies was recognized for more than helping customers save money. Cartridge World was just named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s list of America’s Top Franchises for Veterans in 2014. The local home and office printing experts were listed at No. 59 in the country.

Franchises ranked in the November issue were evaluated and listed based on their incentives for veterans. Cartridge World has been well-known for offering numerous benefits and discounts for current and retired members of the military ranging from customers to franchisees.

“We’re honored to be included in Entrepreneur’s list this year, as Cartridge World has always offered a thank you to those who have served our country,” said William Swanson, CEO of Cartridge World North America. “Whether it’s providing a discount to veteran customers or attracting more veterans to join our franchise system, our support for those who have served continues to grow.”

John DeBroux, owner of Cartridge World in Conyers, Georgia is one of the many reasons why Cartridge World received such praise. He served as a staff sergeant in the United States Air Force from 1965-1969, as well as a senior master sergeant in the Georgia Air National Guard from 1975-1995. Now serving as a Cartridge World franchisee, DeBroux continues to give back to military veterans.

“I’ve had the privilege to be a guardian on the Ninth Honor Flight out of Convers, a program which rewards WWII veterans with a free trip to visit their memorial in Washington DC,” said DeBroux. “Many veterans mentioned the trip was the highlight of their life. It’s always a pleasure to help them enjoy this unique opportunity to connect with fellow veterans and share their stories.”

Supporting veterans’ entry into the Cartridge World franchise system, the company offers a special 15 percent discount on the franchise fee when veterans join the organization. Cartridge World is actively seeking veterans and business professionals who are seeking opportunities to run their own business in the $80 billion printer cartridge industry. In 2014, more than 30 persons joined the Cartridge World business system. With more than 500 stores in the North America, Cartridge World is expanding its presence with high-performance printers, printing products, service and supplies for both business and residential customers.
