ANN ARBOR, Mich., Nov. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --Domino's Pizza, (NYSE:DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, is proud to introduce its new U.S. Veterans Franchise Program. Domino's U.S. Veterans Franchise Program honors the courage and dedication of the men and women of the U.S. military by providing significantly discounted business ownership opportunities to deserving veterans.
Domino's U.S. Veterans Franchise Program aims to provide resources and financial incentives to qualified, honorably discharged military members to provide an easier transition into civilian life after military service completion. Qualified U.S. military veterans interested in business ownership at Domino's Pizza will receive a competitive $20,000 franchise fee discount, operational savings, rebates and comprehensive training.
"Domino's has a historic connection with the military," said David A. Brandon, Domino's Pizza Chairman and CEO. "Our first successful pizzerias were on military bases and college campuses. Domino's U.S. Veterans Franchise Program is the next step in our successful and evolving relationship with the military. We believe that the company with the best people wins and that is why we are incentivizing U.S. veterans to come join our team."
"Domino's is built around dedicated teams working together to grow and succeed," said Tony Osani, U.S. veteran and award-winning owner of 16 Domino's stores. "My experience in the military taught me to be a disciplined leader who could follow directions and work with a team to accomplish responsibilities for the betterment of the Marines and my country. These values are an asset to the operation of my stores and to the entire Domino's Pizza system."
Spouse Employment Partnership
Domino's extends the $20,000 Veterans Program franchise fee discount and other rebates to spouses of active military members. In addition to franchising incentives, Domino's is looking for military spouses to take advantage of employment opportunities offered throughout the company's system.
