SUBWAY Veterans Franchise Program Recognized as Best in the QSR Industry

Sunday, November 15, 2015

The SUBWAY restaurant chain is proud to announce that its program for military Veterans, designed to greatly reduce their costs associated with the purchase of a SUBWAY franchise, has been recognized by
Entrepreneur magazine in its November 2015 issue as one of the best programs in the QSR industry.
The brand's franchising offer, which Chief Development Officer Don Fertman said is a way to say "Thank you" to our veterans, waives the franchise fee for honorably discharged veterans who open a SUBWAY restaurant on a military or government location. The fee will be reduced by 50 percent if a veteran opens on a non-government location and receives government financing designed specifically for veterans.
"We are very proud of the steps we have taken to bring veterans into the Subway family as franchisees," Don said.."This will make it easier for veterans to adjust to civilian life or help them follow their dream of owning and operating their own business."
SUBWAY franchisee Ernesto Martinez, who owns and operates a restaurant in El Paso, Texas, is a veteran of the United States Air Force, where he served as a firefighter, and opened his restaurant using the brand's veteran's program. Ernesto said his military experience prepared him to be disciplined, organized and to work hard, which has helped him in owning and operating his own small business."I would highly recommend Subway to other veterans," Ernesto said. "We are very pleased with the support that Subway has provided. It's great to be treated like you are part of a larger family."
