SBOMAG Roundup: Bach To Rock Franchise Helps Veterans

[ 0 ] Oct. 14, 2013 | SBO Editor

Bach to Rock’s offering is a part of “Operation Enduring Opportunity,” a program developed by the International Franchise Association (IFA) with a goal “to hire as team members and recruit as franchise business owners 75,000 veterans and military spouses and 5,000 wounded warriors by 2014.” Last year when Bach to Rock’s program launched, David Leonard – a United States Army veteran who served in Korea in the 1960s and his wife Ellen Good – signed on to open the first Bach to Rock school in the Philadelphia area.

Since 2011, there have been more than 64,000 veterans who have launched their careers in franchising. Veteran’s programs including VetFran, developed by the IFA, have becoming increasingly more important as the unemployment rate is currently at 7.6 percent. With more than 500 companies available, VetFran offers opportunities to war heroes as they re-enter the workforce.

Bach to Rock is currently seeking candidates to open franchise locations in major metropolitan markets throughout the country.  To learn more about music school franchise ownership opportunities with Bach to Rock, as well as its veteran and franchise referral programs, email franchise@b2rmusic.com, or visit www.b2rmusic.com/franchise.
