Earning His Stripes
This feature originally appeared in the Summer 2018 edition of Vetrepreneur Magazine, The Business Magazine for Military Veterans.
Army and Air Force veteran Jack Child offers a franchise concept to fellow veterans interested in becoming small business owners.
Last year Child launched G-FORCE, a parking lot striping franchise open exclusively to veterans. He sold a similar concept in 2009 that was open to all.
“I decided to jump back into the industry, but this time with the focus exclusively on military veterans,” Child said during a recent interview from the National Pavement Expo & Conference in Cleveland. “This time, I’m building the brand around the franchise owner, instead of the other way around, which is how most franchises evolve.”
The franchise has low overhead and can be operated from home.
