Moran Family of Brands ‘Drives’ Business Opportunities for Veterans
Leading Automotive Aftermarket Company Recognized as GI Jobs’ Veteran Friendly Franchise for Fourth Consecutive Year
CHICAGO, IL – As more and more military men and women return home and look to rebuild and start the next chapter in their lives, the current economy doesn’t appear to be booming with opportunity—until you look at the franchising industry.
Through the International Franchise Association’s campaign to promote employment and entrepreneurship among veterans, Operation Enduring Opportunity, more than 64,000 veterans and military spouses have found careers in franchising. Among the 530 franchise brands actively hiring and recruiting military veterans, is one of the leading franchisors of general automotive repair, transmission repair and automotive accessory centers in the country, Moran Family of Brands
Consistently topping the charts of Military Friendly Franchises since its inception in 2009 with Mr. Transmission, Milex Complete Auto Care, and Alta Mere, Moran Family of Brands recognizes the dedication and drive that service men and women demonstrate as ideal in the skill set needed to be a successful business owner.
“Offering a business model that provides structure in a supportive team environment is something that we’ve always believed in and has resonated well with our country’s veterans,” said President and Owner of Moran Family of Brands, Barbara Moran-Goodrich. “An ideal franchisee works well in a systematic environment, recognizes and implements procedures, and has high operational standards—these are qualities that are consistent with those of our military veterans.”
As one of the leaders in the most popular franchise industry for veterans, Moran Family of Brands is taking initiative in providing stable business opportunities in the automotive category. Most recently, Moran was joined by veteran Master Sergeant, Milton Gay, who will be opening the first cobranded Milex - Mr. Transmission location in his hometown, Virginia Beach.
“I knew I wanted to get into franchising, but there was a lot to narrow it down from,” said Milton Gay. “Once I started looking into Moran Family of Brands, I felt more comfortable—like I’d found my niche. Although I’m still new to the system, it already feels like a ‘family.’ The industry and the concept made for a very easy transition,” added Gay.
Since 2002, Moran Family of Brands has offered a discount to military veterans through the International Franchise Association’s VetFran program. “We are committed to helping veterans succeed in business and I am thrilled that we can assist with discounts through the VetFran program. I believe this is a great way to show respect for the men and women who have served our country.”
