American veterans are cleaning up in the franchise market




A former military veteran is paying it forward by building a national franchising company. Called JDog Junk Removal & Hauling, it franchises exclusively to veterans and military families.

JDog is a way for Jerry Flanagan, company founder and a former specialist in the U.S. Army and National Guard veteran from Wayne, Pennsylvania, to give back to those who were in the U.S. armed forces and to help them use their leadership skills to build a small business. He served in the U.S. Army from 1987 to 1989 and in the Pennsylvania National Guard since the early 1990s.

Flanagan, 47, has been an entrepreneur since 1999 and is among the many military veteran business owners in the U.S. who have turned to franchising.

Since November 2011, more than 5,600 veterans have become franchise owners and over 203,800 veterans or spouses have found employment in franchising within the organization, according to the International Franchise Association (IFA).
