In a groundbreaking move, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen, a leading home remodeling franchise, has announced a strategic partnership with ZeroMils, a company devoted to supporting service members, veterans, and their families. This momentous collaboration is set to unlock the vast potential within the veteran community and create enhanced opportunities for veterans to become influential entrepreneurial leaders in their local communities.
According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, veterans are 45 percent more likely to venture into small business ownership compared to their civilian counterparts. Within the franchising industry, veterans exhibit even greater activity, with veteran-owned franchises comprising an impressive 14% of all franchises in the United States, despite veterans constituting only 6% of the population.
The DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen and ZeroMils partnership aims to capitalize on this potential and bring together their collective resources and extensive networks to establish a supportive environment for veterans and their families, empowering them to achieve their entrepreneurial aspirations.
Doug Dwyer, President and Chief Stewarding Officer of DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership, stating, “We firmly believe that veterans possess immense potential in both the homefront and the business community. At DreamMaker, we have a deep commitment to supporting veterans, and our collaboration with ZeroMils is an extension of that dedication. Together, we aspire to help veterans realize their purpose and unlock their full potential as successful business owners.”
Drawing on its extensive expertise in the home remodeling franchise industry, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen is set to offer veterans an enhanced quality of life and strong margins through its support. Notably, Doug Dwyer also serves as a committee member of the International Franchise Association’s VetFran program – a program that encourages and facilitates franchise ownership for veterans. The VetFran program, initiated in 1991 by Doug’s father, Don Dwyer Sr., a Korean War veteran, has a long-standing history of supporting and empowering veterans in their entrepreneurial journeys.
ZeroMils, led by CEO Kevin Schmiegel, is a mission-driven company headquartered in Washington, D.C. Kevin, a retired Marine Corps lieutenant colonel, brings with him a wealth of experience in rapidly scaling nonprofits and achieving significant results. His dedication to supporting veterans and their families is deeply rooted in his personal history, with his father having served as a veteran as well.
Kevin Schmiegel emphasized the commitment of both companies to provide veterans with the opportunities they deserve to flourish as successful business owners. “Through our partnership with DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen, we aim to create a platform that offers unparalleled support and resources to veterans on their entrepreneurial journey,” stated Schmiegel.
The partnership between DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen and ZeroMils marks a significant milestone in the ongoing efforts to empower veterans and their families, equipping them with the necessary tools, mentorship, and guidance to excel in the business world. Both companies share a common vision of fostering a stronger and more inclusive community, where veterans are empowered to create meaningful impacts through their entrepreneurial ventures.
As the partnership continues to evolve, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen and ZeroMils will work closely together to develop tailored programs and initiatives catering specifically to the unique needs of veterans seeking to start and expand their businesses. The joint effort will prioritize fostering an environment that nurtures innovation, resilience, and success for veterans in the ever-expanding franchise industry.
