Mr. Rooter Says Thank You to Veterans

Veteran's Day is a chance to thank every man and woman in our armed forces for their service. On this day and throughout the year, Mr. Rooter wants to recognize the sacrifices made by the members of our military branches. Our franchise values the skills, talent and leadership of these veterans, and is proud to have franchisees who have served. We work through The Dwyer Group's VetFran program to offer benefits to veterans looking to own their own business when returning to civilian life.

Robert Poust and his son Ryan own Mr. Rooter of Morris & Sussex Counties in New Jersey. We asked Robert to share information about his military service, and why he decided to become a franchisee with our brand.

  • Please tell us a little about your service history.

I went into the service in the fall 1969. I spent some time at Fort Campbell in Kentucky, then at Fort Sill in Oklahoma. From there I served in the Army National Guard until fall 1975.

  • What does it mean to you to be part of a company that values the service of veterans?

Being with a company that appreciates and honors our Vets means the world to me, being a Vet is someone who should be honored, they have given so much and some gave all.

  • What would you tell other veterans who may be interested in franchising?

I would like to everyone know that this franchise has great values and its people are true friends to all those who have served and to all those who are still in the service. God bless our men and women for all their dedication so we can live in this great country.
