VetFran, an advocacy program for U.S. military veterans, has ranked PIRTEK USA as a “5 Star Franchisor Member” for its veteran-friendly policies and support of veterans’ causes. The new ranking marks PIRTEK’s rise from a “1 Star Franchisor Member” all the way up to the program’s highest level in only one year.
“We’re very happy with this new designation by VetFran, because it’s consistent with our strong commitment to those who served in the U.S. Armed Forces,” said Kim Gubera, PIRTEK USA’s CEO. “PIRTEK will continue to help veterans become franchisees in our network. This new ranking shows us we’re moving in the right direction.”
The only franchise brand of its kind in the United States, PIRTEK USA specializes in hydraulic and industrial hose services through its locations throughout the country. PIRTEK USA team members are available 24/7 to provide onsite repairs to hydraulic and industrial hoses, thanks to the company’s specially equipped Mobile Service Vehicles. PIRTEK boasts more than 400 franchise locations in 23 countries around the world, including 91 in the United States.
To qualify for VetFran’s five stars, a business needs to fulfill several criteria, including a minimum 20-percent veterans’ discount on the initial franchise fee. VetFran is an initiative of the International Franchise Association and the Franchise Education and Research Foundation.
PIRTEK USA offers veterans franchising discounts from $5,000 to $15,000. The company also donates to several causes that help support and encourage veterans.
