VALDOSTA, Ga. — U.S. military veteran Patricia Evans opened a Little Caesars franchise in Valdosta, Ga., this week, becoming the first female veteran to open a restaurant as part of the Little Caesars Veterans Program.
Evans served in the U.S. Navy for five years, two of which were spent in Adak, Alaska. Before joining Little Caesars she owned and operated a chicken farm in Florida, raising chickens with her two sons, Vince and Andrew, who also will help run the Little Caesars pizza business.
Little Caesars created the Veterans Program as a way to thank veterans for their service and provide them with career opportunities when they transition to civilian life or seek a career change. It offers honorably discharged, service-disabled veterans who qualify as Little Caesars franchisees a benefit of up to $68,000.
Honorably discharged, non-service-disabled veterans who qualify, are eligible for a benefit of $10,000.
Nearly two dozen veterans have been approved to become Little Caesars franchisees and more than 1,400 inquiries have been made about the program.
