At Edible Arrangements®, we truly appreciate the bravery, commitment and sacrifice of the military men and women who serve our country. We believe so strongly in these remarkable servicemen and women that we recently announced a major initiative in collaboration with the International Franchise Association (IFA), starting with a donation of $125,000 to the IFA’s VetFran program.
And, we’re also excited to announce that we’ll be launching our new “Hero’s Welcome” program this year! This program will help veterans become Edible Arrangements® franchisees, including specialized training, a franchise fee discount, and mentoring from existing Edible Arrangements® franchisees who are also veterans. In addition, we’ve set a goal of providing job opportunities and a career path for an additional 1,000 veterans throughout our franchise locations nationwide!
“The brave men and women of our military are the ones who have made it possible for each of us to enjoy the American Dream,” said Edible Arrangements® CEO Tariq Farid. “I believe it is our obligation to help those who have sacrificed so much by doing what we can to give them the tools and support to achieve that dream themselves.”
