Franchise Opportunities


Business ownership starts here. Become a successful franchise owner of a nationally recognized brand, and one that supports military service women and men transitioning back into civilian life. There are 296 locations opened, owned by 200 franchisees in the United States. Since 2004, more than 150 franchises have been awarded to first-time veteran buyers through the Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative (VetFran) program, a cooperation of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the Veterans Corporation, and the U.S. Small Business Administration. As a dedicated participant in the VetFran program, The UPS Store ranked #1 among veterans in 2008, awarding more veteran franchise opportunities than any other participating franchise company.

As our way of saying thank you for your service to your country, qualifying veterans receive $10,000 off the franchise fee of a new UPS Store location and 50% off the initial application fee.

Your military service keeps the American dream alive. Now it’s time to start living your dream!
