Share This:


On Oct. 26, Maaco will join the Department of Defense Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) in a virtual ceremony.

Maaco joins 45 new partners to MSEP, bringing the total number of employers to 544.


MSEP connects military spouses with hundreds of partner employers who commit to recruit, hire, promote and retain military spouses. Since its inception in 2011, MSEP employers have hired more than 200,000 military spouses.


The induction ceremony will feature Dr. Jill Biden, first lady of the U.S., scheduled to provide welcome remarks.


When it launched, MSEP was part of the White House’s Joining Forces initiative. The MSEP continues to be a key element of the Joining Forces initiative to increase economic opportunity and mobility for military families.


“Maaco has a longstanding history of giving back to active, reserve military members and veterans, so we are proud to add another layer of support through this remarkable program,” said Chris Dawson, president of Maaco. “We have several franchisees and employees within our Maaco family who have served, so we know military spouses have a unique set of diverse skills that bring incredible value to every business, no matter the industry.” 


Currently, there are about 1 million military spouses in our global military community. It is a challenge for military spouses to find and maintain employment with frequent permanent change of station moves.


Join Maaco in celebrating its induction into the partnership and the 10-year anniversary of MSEP by following Military OneSource and SECO on Facebook to watch the 2021 MSEP Annual Event Welcome Remarks and Induction Ceremony livestream at 2 p.m. ET Oct. 26.
