The Importance of the Validation Process

VetCor Franchising

If you’re not yet familiar with the VetCor franchise, it’s a business ownership opportunity that specializes in water and mold damage restoration services. When you “investigate” a franchise, you get to learn about the business model while going through the awarding process. And a big part of it is the validation stage. What’s validation? Put in the simplest terms, it’s where you get to take somebody else at their word. In this case, it involves hearing the supporting evidence directly from VetCor and our existing franchisee teammates, as they describe the value proposition of our business opportunity.

By design, validation helps paint an accurate picture of what it’s like to own a VetCor franchise. Specifically, you’ll come to find out about the onboarding process, training, operations, sales, marketing, and the ongoing support you’ll be provided when operating a VetCor franchise of your own. Why is validation an important step in the investigative process? Because it’s your opportunity to take in this information before making an informed decision on whether VetCor is the right fit for you. And, franchise brands are also prohibited from making specific financial, revenue, and profitability claims.

When you participate in a validation session with one of our existing VetCor franchisees, it’s your opportunity to ask the tough questions in a one-on-one setting. It’s a chance to speak with a current business owner who’s been on the other end of the line. It’s OK to ask the tough questions. What was it like during the first few months? How has business been? Are you making a good living? How busy are you? What do you love about the job? We encourage you to have a frank and honest discussion. After all, if you choose to go with VetCor, these will be your teammates.

Validation is supposed to provide an unbiased opinion of what your day-to-day life would look like as a VetCor owner. It’s a key phase of conducting your due diligence on the VetCor business opportunity. One thing you’re likely to hear is why VetCor is an essential business. Because the need for damage restoration services can occur at any time, leaving victims in need of immediate assistance. 

Just recently, we’ve witnessed historical flooding in Louisiana, rural Tennessee, and even the heart of New York City. Incidents such as these, along with fires, smoke damage, tornadoes, hurricanes, can lead to unprecedented damage. But water damage and restoration services also extend to household mishaps—most notably plumbing malfunctions related to common household appliances like garbage disposals, dishwashers, ice makers, hot water heaters, and even air conditioning units. And when these incidents do happen, VetCor is on the scene.

If you’re considering an entrepreneurial future and eager to own and operate a business of your own, we expect you to do your own due diligence to make sure the VetCor opportunity is a good match. We’re a veteran-owned, veteran-advocated business opportunity, known for instilling the same norms, cultures, and values rooted in military service–as well as offering our customers timely, quality, reliable customer service.
