National Plumbing Franchise and Hire Heroes USA Work Together to Place Unemployed Veterans


Sarasota, FL – Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, known for their on-time promise and drug-tested and background-checked employees, has entered into a strategic partnership with Hire Heroes USA. The agreement gives Benjamin Franklin franchisees the chance to make job openings available to HHUSA’s database of service veterans.   
 
The value of veterans’ special technical training, emphasis on punctuality and their experience working directly with the people of Afghanistan and Iraq in rebuilding efforts can’t be overstated. Benjamin Franklin is proud to be able to assist the non-profit in its mission of reducing the number of unemployed veterans of Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom, which stands at a staggering 1.39 million.
 
The talent pool is a potentially invaluable resource for the more than 250 Ben Franklin Plumbing locations across North America. “Practices in all of our locations demand punctuality, discipline, drive, and an honorable track record,” Ben Franklin's president, Keresa Richardson said. “Many of the veterans Hire Heroes USA assists will fit that mold, and in turn be able to help us franchisees succeed. And, I speak for many when I say we look forward to helping achieve the goal of reducing veteran unemployment. This partnership is a perfect match.”
 
Hire Heroes USA also believes the expertly trained and honorably discharged veterans they work with will meet the plumbing company’s discerning employment standards.
 
“Hire Heroes USA is honored to partner with Benjamin Franklin franchisees,” Sara Trask, HHUSA’s director of corporate relations said. “With the work that Ben Franklin does, it is a great match to many of our military men and women’s skill sets. What a great opportunity for many of our veterans with technical experience to join franchisees across the country doing work they love to do and can excel at.”
