The Military Times is an organization made up of Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times and Marine Corps Times.
The organization focused on financial incentives, brand performance and policies that cater to veterans and reservists when conducting and scoring for Best for Vets: Franchises survey, a 110-question analysis for a franchise’s efforts to provide veterans an environment for success.
The Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative (VetFran Program) was established by Don Dwyer, Sr., founder of The Dwyer Group, soon after the Gulf War ended in 1991.
The Vet Fran program is a voluntary effort of International Franchise Association (IFA) member companies to encourage franchise ownership by offering business franchise opportunities and financial incentives to honorably discharged veterans.
Military Times’ series of Best for Vets survey-based rankings includes: Colleges, Career & Technical Colleges, Business Schools, Franchises, Employers and Law Enforcement.
