In June 2013, Clear Channel launched iHeartRadio’s Show Your Stripes. The company-wide community service initiative aims to shine a light on unemployment among U.S. military veterans while encouraging businesses to hire skilled veterans.
Here at Edible Arrangements, we’re also proud to support veterans through our own Hero’s Welcome™ program! Launched in 2013, Hero’s Welcome™ is an offshoot of Edible Cares™ that aims to help veterans become Edible Arrangements® Franchise Partners.
Recently, we teamed up with iHeartRadio’s Show Your Stripes to create PSAs featuring two current veteran Edible Arrangements® Franchise Partners. These spots will be heard throughout the country on Clear Channel stations, but you can listen to them right here! We thank Sgt. Lauren Little (USMC veteran, owner of 2 stores in Jacksonville, FL) and Sgt. Maurice Welton (US Army veteran, owner of 5 stores throughout Southern Texas) for their service and for taking part in this awareness movement.
