The New Miami Subs Grill, a Ft. Lauderdale-based fast-casual restaurant chain, was selected as one of the 50 Top Franchises for Veterans by World Franchising Network.

The franchise was recognized for its commitment to the recruitment and advancement of veterans within the company and its policy to provide veterans with incentives to acquire a franchise. This is the second year in a row the chain has been selected. 

"The New Miami Subs Grill is proud to help those who proudly served the United States military," says Lawrence Austin, a principal of the New Miami Subs Grill. "We have found that veterans bring with them a work ethic that serves them and our customers well in this highly competitive market." 

The 50 companies included in this list were selected from hundreds of applicants. Each participating franchisor was required to submit a completed questionnaire describing the specific financial incentives provided to veterans. The questionnaire also noted the number of operating units owned by veterans, as well as the number of veterans in senior management that earned more than $60,000 per year.

"We are extremely pleased at the number of franchisors that not only recognize the sacrifices our servicemen and women have made, but, more importantly, welcome them back into the business world with very generous financial incentives," says Rob Bond, president of World Franchising Network.

"What's particularly gratifying is that we are one of only 50 franchise companies selected, considering there are thousands of franchise opportunities available," Austin says.
