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!
