This coming Monday is a day millions of people eagerly anticipate throughout the cold and dreary months. It’s the unofficial start to summer, and it kicks off the season of spending days at the beach, kids running lemonade stands, and enjoying an alfresco evening under starry skies.
Most importantly, it’s Memorial Day, a day to honor those who have made the greatest sacrifice as they protected and supported their country. So while people across the country will be grilling out and welcoming the sunshine, we’ll also pause to reflect on the fallen as well as those who are actively serving in the military, and the many veterans who are now living in our local communities and serving in our local businesses.
This Memorial Day, our team at Valpak has even another reason to celebrate! We are deeply honored to have been named one of Military Times’ Best for Vets Franchises of 2013. Franchising offers a unique opportunity for Veterans to become their own boss with a structured, supportive system to help them succeed. We’re thrilled to come in as #5 on this year’s franchise list, and are committed to offering a variety of benefits to Veterans to support them with local marketing tools as they setup and operate of their own small business with the trusted Valpak name.
Whether you are advertising your small business with the familiar blue envelope, using the savings and coupons to save money in day-to-day life, or even looking to join our diverse team of franchisees, you can rest assured that we stand behind our commitment to supporting our nation’s veterans and their families by helping them achieve success after service.
So this Memorial Day, we want to say a big “Thank You!” to the Military Times, the families of our fallen servicemen and women, our Veterans and those still in active duty!
