This is a very special Edition of Franchise Today, in celebration of Veterans Day, coming up Saturday November 11th 2023, at 11AM. Celebrations and parades will be kicking off across America in honor of all those who have served in our Nation ‘s Armed Forces. To help us better understand the close ties and connections between veterans and franchising, we are joined today by my good friend and IFA VetFran Chairman, Ralph Yarusso.
Ralph is the Chairman of IFA’s VetFran Committee. His franchise career spans almost 40 years of experience, holding executive-level positions with multiple brands. But all of that came after first spending many years as a very successful multi-unit franchisee, with as many as 15 locations under his ownership in multiple cities. Ralph is a United States Air Force Veteran, a Certified Franchise Executive (CFE) and a Certified Franchise Consultant (CFC).
No matter the role, zee or zor, Ralph Yarusso is passionate about helping others succeed in franchising and has always been happy to lend a hand to mentor others. He currently serves as Chairman of the VetFran committee for the IFA and here he is to tell us all about it.
