Armed Forces Day is this Saturday, May 17th. President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish this special holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country.

To recognize and celebrate Armed Forces Day, HFC—the parent company of Budget Blinds and Tailored Living—continues to push forward with its Million Dollar Franchise Event! The event grants significant discounts off the purchase of a Budget Blinds or Tailored Living franchise (both home based franchises) and has the end goal of reaching $1,000,000 in total discounts.

“The Million Dollar Franchise Event is the least we can do to support the men and women who have selflessly risked their lives to protect our freedoms,” said Chad Hallock, CEO of Home Franchise Concepts. “U.S. Veterans deserve a chance to experience the American Dream by owning one of the best home franchises, and we are excited to help them achieve it by offering this great opportunity to transition into the civilian workforce.”

HFC has already made business owners out of several Veterans and hopes to continue the momentum this Armed Forces Day and beyond. Veteran recipients thus far have come from various military backgrounds and possess different levels of experience. Among them are husband and wife Air Force Veterans Rob and Christina Chick.

“It can be a rough road,” said Rob Chick. “I’ve seen a lot of successful men and women in uniform struggle to find the right opportunities in the civilian sector but we feel very happy and confident with our new business.”

This Armed Forces Day let us give thanks to the brave men and women of the U.S. Military who have sacrificed so much for this country. With our help, they can better pursue the American Dream after active duty.
