Iraq war veteran Stephen Young, certainly doesn't think he's rolling the franchise dice. He just invested in a 7-Eleven franchise. The location; Lakeland, Florida.

Young saved 10% off the franchise fee because of 7-Eleven's Military Discount program that was started by 7-Eleven president and CEO Joe DePinto, who is himself a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and served as an officer in the U.S. Army.

Young is a war veteran who served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps. Outside of the military, his only work experience was at a grocery store while growing up in Fernandina Beach. He returned to that type of work after the Marines to help support his wife and child, as well as a second one on the way.

The entire franchise community wishes you the best of luck, Stephen!

Joel is Highly Principled
There are many people in the franchise business who claim to to be experts in the field. Unfortunately many of them lack both knowledge and integrity. Joel, however, is without question one of the most qualified and principled people I know, in or out of his industry."
