March 2, 2007 - Portsmouth, NH - To help promote the company’s mission of providing prospective franchise owners with the most helpful tools for finding a franchise that’s right for them and giving them easy access to the resources necessary to purchase a business, Franchise Solutions is pleased to announce the first winner of its new prize drawing. Perry and Peggy Lamy, retired Air Force veterans who discovered 1-800-GOT-JUNK? on the Franchise Solutions’ powered website www.VeteranFranchises.com and purchased two 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchises this past December, won a $350 gift certificate to Staples.
The monthly giveaway is a random drawing of new franchise owners that utilized one of Franchise Solutions’ websites to request additional information on a business and went on to purchase that particular business. Individuals must contact the company (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let them know that they’d like to be entered in the drawing. Additionally, those individuals must be willing to share their story with other prospective franchise buyers via articles that will be featured on the websites. The company has found that real testimonials from business owners helps prospects more accurately choose the business that matches their goals and lifestyles. Drawing winners can choose from a wide variety of gift certificates that will help their business get up and running.
“This is a nice surprise and we are grateful to Franchise Solutions for the gift certificate! We’ll use this opportunity to buy our office supplies since Staples is a 1-800-GOT-JUNK? national account and partner,” Perry Lamy explained. “Franchise Solutions will play a part in establishing our franchise by getting it ready for grand opening.”
Perry Lamy attended the USAF Academy from 1971 until 1975, and retired on February 1, 2006 after 30 ½ years of service. He achieved the rank of Major General prior to leaving the Air Force. Peggy Lamy enlisted in the USAF in 1978, served on active duty until 1984, and then transferred to the reserves until 1995. Perry and Peggy had previously owned an upscale consignment shop which was very successful. They wanted to be part of the local business environment and make a contribution to their community.
“When I found 1-800-GOT-JUNK? on VeteranFranchises.com, my intent was only to investigate the possibilities and process of the franchise search, but once I entered the investigation and due diligence, I decided that this company offered much of what I have been looking for in my transition from the military. I think franchise businesses are a fantastic opportunity for our veterans because of their training, experience, dedication, and integrity,” explained Perry Lamy. “We chose 1-800-GOT-JUNK? because the business concept was simple, the company has achieved consistent growth yet it is still young, the Dallas territory was available, they offered a VetFran program discount…above all, when we visited the Junktion (corporate office) in Vancouver, BC, we found a very enthusiastic team of dedicated, committed, and visionary individuals excited about building the 1-800-GOT-JUNK? brand and who promote core values of passion, integrity, professionalism, and empathy.”
Franchise Solutions will choose a prize winner each month and the winner’s business buying and ownership experience will be featured on the company’s network of websites.
