Magazine recognizes PIRTEK’s incentives for military vets, support for programs that offer ongoing assistance
PIRTEK USA continues its rise up Entrepreneur Magazine’s list of top franchises for military veterans, with the publication ranking the company at No. 30. The new ranking marks a climb of three places over last year’s position.
The company’s increasingly high rating in the magazine’s Top Franchises for Veterans list is due in part to its $5,000 to $15,000 discount on veterans’ franchise fees. PIRTEK USA also donates to causes that help support and encourage veterans.
“It’s truly an honor to help assist those who sacrifice so much on our behalf,” said Kim Gubera (LinkedIn profile), PIRTEK USA’s CEO. “We appreciate that Entrepreneur recognizes these efforts and we are happy to see this year’s results. The PIRTEK culture will always include helping veterans realize their dreams of owning a business.”
The only franchise brand of its kind in the United States, PIRTEK USA specializes in hydraulic and industrial hose services through its locations throughout the country. PIRTEK USA team members are also available 24/7 to provide onsite repairs to hydraulic and industrial hoses, thanks to the company’s specially equipped Mobile Service Vehicles. PIRTEK boasts more than 400 franchise locations in 23 countries around the world, including 90 in the United States.
Each year, Entrepreneur surveys 500 companies regarding their programs and incentives aimed at helping military veterans in their careers. After reviewing the surveys, the magazine ranks 150 of the original 500 entrants and publishes its list.
Among PIRTEK’s advocacy efforts is its support for the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation, established in honor of the famed American Sniper by his wife, Taya Kyle. The foundation offers Revitalization Retreats, special getaways that help military and first-responder couples recharge and enjoy themselves away from their daily stress. PIRTEK also helps support the Chris Kyle Legendary Classic Golf Tournament, a fundraiser for the organization.
In addition to this work, PIRTEK also sponsors the Take a Vet Fishing event each year, in which PIRTEK-branded boats take veterans out for a day on Mille Lacs Lake in Minnesota.
