Blimpie Lowers Franchising Fee for 47 Military Veterans
Celebrating 47th anniversary with limited $47 franchisee fee
To celebrate the brand's 47th anniversary, Blimpie sub sandwich shop is offering military veterans the American dream
through a new program called Blueprint 47. Developed to reduce costs and increase the ease of opening a Blimpie franchise,
the sub shop is lowering the franchise fee from $18,000 to $47 for 47 military veterans.
The Blueprint 47 program
creates a practical career option for military veterans by lowering the barriers of entering into a franchised business. The
first 47 veterans who apply and are approved will receive a Blimpie franchise anywhere in the United States for only $47.
The program began on January 15 and will continue through the end of June 2011.
"Through Blueprint 47, Blimpie
has the opportunity to pay tribute to the brave men and women who valiantly served our country over the past years,"
said Jeff Smit, president of Blimpie. "We are committed to the success and growth of the Blimpie brand and are excited
to welcome these new franchisees to our community."
Blueprint 47 is a multi-phased program created by the
Blimpie development team to increase the growth of the brand. The first phase focuses on military veterans, affording opportunities
to a new demographic of entrepreneurs. The second phase will assist current Blimpie franchisees interested in expanding their
business into multiple units.
