McHenry, Ill. – For two out of the last three years that the award has been given, Cartridge World, the world’s leading franchisor in the office supply industry, is being recognized for its support of veterans – both as business partners and customers. Entrepreneur Magazine’s list of “America’s Top Franchises for Veterans” named Cartridge World among the top tier franchises in the country at No. 62.
Franchises ranked in the November issue were evaluated on their support for veterans. Cartridge World has been well-known for offering numerous benefits for current and retired members of the military, including a 15 percent franchise fee discount along with a 10 percent discount for veterans on Cartridge World products.
“Cartridge World has always been supportive of veterans entering or re-entering the business world, and we’re honored to be recognized for our efforts to make this process easier for them,” said Steve Weedon, Global CEO and Cartridge World North America CEO. “Whether it’s providing a product discount to veterans who are customers or attracting more veterans to join our franchise system, our support for those who have served continues to grow.”
Roger Madore, a 24-year Air Force veteran and a new Cartridge World franchisee in St. Augustine, Florida, is a veteran who has taken the leap into business ownership with Cartridge World. Madore had always known that he would follow in his family’s footsteps and become a business owner. Plus, with a background in the printing industry and a solid business model backing the franchise, Madore knew Cartridge World was the right fit for him to be successful.
“Simply put, investing in Cartridge World made a lot of sense to me,” said Madore. “Not only does it give me the chance to sell printing products that every business needs, but it also offers an incredible opportunity to grow and succeed within the St. Augustine community.”
Cartridge World’s recognition comes in the midst of provisions that are being proposed to the GI Bill, which would provide start-up money for veterans looking to invest in a business.
