Veterans as Franchisees

Teriyaki Madness’ very own Russ McCray, franchise owner, explains how being a veteran can make a great franchisee. McCray has found success with Teriyaki Madness after serving in the Air Force for 6 years of active duty and 4 years on reserve. He states:

“One of the greatest things that the military teaches soldiers, especially those in leadership positions, are applicative concepts like flexibility, attention to detail,  situational awareness, risk mitigation, and different types of leadership styles for different types of situations.”

With this go-to attitude, McCray sees the same values as Teriyaki Madness holds. They want franchisees to be bold, take risks, become a positive leader and share their leadership qualities with others. McCray offers other words of advice:

  • do your due diligence
  • research thoughtfully for organizations that benefit veterans
  • find support when needed
  • persevere for success
