1-800 WATER DAMAGE and redbox+ Dumpsters earn spots on the business magazine's prestigious list of the top 150 franchise companies that are best suited for veterans

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Nov. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Two BELFOR Franchise Group brands, 1-800 WATER DAMAGE and redbox+ Dumpsters, have been named as Top Franchises for Veterans in 2023 by Entrepreneur Magazine, a leading business magazine that focuses on the culture, mindset, and lifestyle of entrepreneurship.

"We value our veterans and want to ensure they receive the respect they deserve within our franchising system," said BELFOR Franchise Group Senior Vice President of Franchise Development Doug Smith. "Veterans frequently possess many of the qualities we look for in potential franchisees. They are industrious, able to adhere to a system and motivated to serve others. We are proud that these BELFOR Franchise Group brands have achieved this honor."

BELFOR Franchise Group is a leading and privately held residential and commercial services franchise group. It is the parent organization for 13 service-based franchise opportunities in the restoration, home services and commercial cleaning industries.

Each year, Entrepreneur encourages franchisors to apply for its annual list of the top franchises for veterans. This year, the media group had almost 500 applicants. Entrepreneur chose the final list of 150 franchise brands after considering the veteran incentives offered by each company, the methods employed to attract and support veteran franchisees, and the respective rankings of each company in the 2023 Franchise 500.

"It is truly an honor to consistently welcome veteran members to our fast-growing franchise network," said 1-800 WATER DAMAGE President Tim Fagan. "This is a testament to our commitment in providing excellent opportunities and support for veterans looking to enter the business world."

Director of Operations, Sean Foley, said redbox+ Dumpsters is proud to be recognized as an Entrepreneur Top Franchise for Veterans.
