The Mark Wahlberg-backed F45 Training fitness chain is looking to help veterans transitioning back to civilian life to become franchise owners. Wahlberg joined Cheddar’s ‘Closing Bell’ to discuss the initiative and talked about why the company is looking to elevate former servicemembers. “With F45, it just seemed like an obvious fit not only to provide studios on the bases, but then also provide opportunities for our servicemen and women when they’re transitioning out of the service to give them an opportunity to be multi-unit operators and have a great career for themselves in a space where we know they would be successful,” he said.
