FT. MYERS, Fla. — Military veteran Martin Lorenz opened his first Little Caesars location last week as part of the company's Little Caesars Veterans Program. The program offers qualified, honorably discharged U.S. military veterans such as Lorenz $10,000 in discounts and credits, and service-disabled veterans benefits of up to $68,000 to help them open a Little Caesars franchise.
Lorenz's store is located in Gladiolus Gateway Plaza in Ft. Myers, Fla.
Little Caesars launched its Veterans Program in November 2006 and has received more than 1,100 inquires about the program. Twelve veterans have been approved to be Little Caesars franchisees.
