The nation’s largest massage franchise, Massage Envy, is promoting franchise ownership opportunities to U.S. veterans.

There are more than 760 Massage Envy and Massage Envy Spa locations operating in 44 states.

In June the company was named to the 2012 Military Friendly Franchises List. Compiled by G.I. Jobs, the list highlights those companies that provide veterans with the best financial incentives and training, and which have the highest number of veteran franchisees. according to a press release.

Vets are realizing that “owning a business is not so different than their role as a military leader,” according to another Massage Envy press release. “Massage Envy believes strongly that these men and women who’ve served their country honorably have specialized skill sets that translate well into franchise ownership, and has made it a priority to recruit franchise owners with military experience to their system.”
