In an effort to continue its support for armed forces veterans and build the success the brand has seen with veteran operators, Togo's is waiving franchisees fees for two military veterans this summer.
"I can reflect back to when I got out of the military. A lot of veterans aren’t sure what they want to do next," Togo's Franchisee and Vietnam Veteran Tony Hardin said in a release. "This is the exact opportunity they can use to guide them into the next chapter of their lives."
Today, nearly one in seven franchise businesses is veteran-owned. In the last five years, 5,100 veterans have become business owners, and to date, there are more than 66,000 veteran-owned franchises.
"We hope this offer will provide a compelling opportunity for a veteran to become the owner of their very own business," he said. "We value everything our military veterans have done for this country, and respect the vast skills they can bring to our business. We don’t require our franchisee candidates to have restaurant experience. We look for someone who is hard-working, understands the importance of team-building, demonstrates good leadership skills, and is passionate about guest satisfaction."
