JDog Brands, the veteran-centric franchisor with over 270 veteran-owned franchise locations across the United States, has announced a strategic, nationwide partnership with Soldiers’ Angels, a nonprofit dedicated to providing aid, comfort, and resources to the military, veterans, and their families.

While JDog's mission is widely known to be centered around reducing the Veteran unemployment rate to under 1%, they’re now engaging in a new mission to inspire every American to wear a red shirt on Fridays to honor and remember everyone deployed. To bring awareness to the RED movement, JDog will be driving their RED wrapped vehicle to locations in their home state of Pennsylvania and Maryland while raising money for Soldiers' Angels. 

“I think we as Americans go on with our lives everyday without realizing that there are troops constantly deploying each week,” said JDog Brands CEO and Veteran Jerry Flanagan. “It only gets highlighted when there's a war or an invasion, but for the last 70 years, troops have been deployed around the world to protect us and our country. It's important that people take the time to put on a RED shirt to remind ourselves and others about our troops. Soldiers' Angels is the perfect partner in this mission because the work they do for our military and their families is nothing short of heroic.” 

“We are very excited to partner with JDog Brands and encourage more Americans to show support for our deployed service members,” said Amy Palmer, President and CEO of Soldiers’ Angels. “In 2003 when Soldiers’ Angels was founded, there was resounding support for our military and thousands of people wore RED every Friday. However, we have seen that support decline steadily over the last 19 years, so we’re very excited that JDog is going to help bring light back to this important weekly tradition.”

JDog Brands, which is designed to elevate the strengths of Veterans and make the most of their leadership abilities and talents, has become one of the most popular franchise investments among Veterans. When franchisees buy into JDog Brands, they are becoming a part of a brotherhood and sisterhood of Veterans and military families, and when customers choose JDog Brands for junk hauling or carpet cleaning and floorcare, they can be confident they are supporting their local Veterans. This provides a valuable outlet for Veteran entrepreneurs who are struggling to adapt to civilian life and who are eager to give back to their local communities.


Headquartered in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, JDog Brands was founded by Army Veteran Jerry Flanagan, JDog’s CEO, and his wife, Tracy Flanagan, when they recognized the struggle many Veterans faced when acclimating back to civilian life. JDog Junk Hauling & Removal and JDog Carpet Cleaning & Floor Care create business ownership opportunities exclusively for Veterans and their families with more than 270 JDog franchises across the country. JDog Brands provides franchisees with comprehensive training and support for every step of their business ownership journey. For more information on franchise opportunities, visit
