The Wounded Warrior project aims to help veterans get the medical support they need and help them acclimate to civilian life. To help promote these services, Subway Sandwiches has developed a number of programs designed to help Wounded Warriors and directly impact veterans outside the program. Subway already employs veterans in stores and as franchisees, and they continue to salute wounded warriors and all servicemembers past and present.
“Many members of the SUBWAY family including countless franchisees, employees, and loyal customers, have served our country,” said Jeff Larson, Vice President of Global Marketing, Marketing Development and Activation at SUBWAY® restaurants. “Our partnership with Wounded Warrior Project is just one way we want to recognize their service and say thank you.”
Aside from a direct financial contribution to the Wounded Warrior project, Subway will also feature special waivers for veterans who want to become franchisees. The standard license fee of $15,000 will be waived for any veteran who wishes to start a Subway restaurant on a government or military site, and the fee will be cut in half for development anywhere else. This is great news for veterans who are interested in entrepreneurial efforts, and are looking to take on a challenge.
