Why is HUMAN the perfect franchise for veterans?
Find out in our Top 3 list below!
1. Veterans receive a discounted Franchise Fee
In appreciation for their service, HUMAN offers Veterans a 10% discount off their franchise fee.
2. HUMAN is co-founded by a former Naval Officer, Andy Mackensen
After serving as a US Naval Officer and being honorably discharged in 2004, HUMAN Co-Founder Andy Mackensen was looking for an opportunity to utilize his MBA to combat what he saw happening every day in the Navy: servicemen and women who were discharged because they could not meet basic fitness standards. When a mutual friend introduced Mackensen and HUMAN Co-Founder Sean Kelly in 2008, the two joined forces to end the trend toward obesity by creating easy nutrition everywhere.
3. HUMAN works with, and serves, veterans
HUMAN services machines on military bases across the nation, including Fort Sam Houston and Tinker Air Force Base. Furthermore, over 10% of HUMAN’s franchisees are veterans who are now serving their local communities and fighting to make healthy foods more convenient than junk foods.
Ryan Leonard is one veteran who became a HUMAN franchisee upon his return to civilian life.
After serving over 11 years in the United States Marine Corps and returning from Iraq and Afghanistan to civilian life, Ryan sought a business opportunity that would match his aspiration to become an entrepreneur with his desire to solve the nutrition-focused issues he saw during his years of service. Once he discovered HUMAN’s mission of creating easy nutrition everywhere, he knew HUMAN was a perfect franchise for veterans.
