He is also the author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Franchising and co-author of The Tasti D-Lite Way.

ZHC Inc. CEO and Founder Robert Beatty stated: “Words cannot express the gratitude and excitement I have for Jim’s acceptance and appointment to our board. Being a Veteran myself and adding Jim’s decorated experience will be a tremendous asset as we roll out our nationwide Franchise expansion plan and Veterans behavioral health initiative. I have been seeking this level of mentorship some time.”

Jim Amos stated: “I am very pleased to accept this appointment to the Board of Directors of ZHC. In all my years of franchise history, ZHC is one of the most exciting opportunities I have come across. The Veteran’s initiative to build ZHC clinics adjacent to VA hospitals, providing critically needed services is very near and dear to my heart. For over 30 years, I have worked on Veterans’ causes, and this initiative is one of the most promising I have ever seen. I am honored to be a part of such a great cause and fantastic Company”.
