Veterans to Receive Business Discounts Through GNC's New Veterans Franchising Opportunity
Date:5/29/2008

PITTSBURGH, May 29 /PRNewswire/ -- GNC wants to help honorably discharged veterans become small business owners through a new veterans franchising program.

The program is designed to help business-minded veterans start on the right path toward their next journey in life. Through Dec. 31, 2008, GNC will offer a 25 percent discount on the normal franchise fee. Service-disabled veterans receive additional benefits, including a 50 percent discount on the franchise fee and a $10,000 retail credit toward the opening inventory order. Additionally, GNC offers financing for new franchisees who qualify.

"GNC is thrilled to offer this franchise program to all qualified servicemen and women who have well-served our country," said Tom Dowd, Executive Vice President of Store Operations and Development at GNC's Pittsburgh headquarters.

"The members of the United States Armed Forces have always been fantastic and loyal GNC customers. The synergies of their military background with their interest in living fit, healthy lives are ideal for a business partnership with GNC," he said.

"Our servicemen and women are already trained in the critical requirements of running a successful franchise, from teamwork to communication to goal-driven initiatives; it's a perfect fit. This is just one way GNC can give back to our valued veterans who have so unselfishly served our great country."

GNC's franchise program strategically positions operators to reap the benefits of GNC's established brand name, loyal customer following and proven business practices. GNC is committed to providing the start-up assistance and support services needed to operate a thriving franchise.
