Tasti D-Lite announces it was ranked in the top 10 percent of all franchises nationwide and named a 2012 Military Friendly Franchise® by G.I. Jobs Magazine.
The soft serve frozen dessert company draws customers with a great-tasting frozen treat with less fat than ice cream and less sugar than frozen yogurt and currently has three veteran-owned franchises. Tasti D-Lite honors military veterans all year round by offering service members a 25 percent discount off the franchise fee, allowing veterans to use their training and operational skills in a new civilian career.
“I attribute my own successes to my military experience,” said Tasti D-Lite owner Jim Amos, a former Marine Corps captain and veteran of two combat tours in Vietnam. “The leadership, responsibility and integrity that I instill in my own work are based in the military, and with former military franchise owners, I know they work with those same values.”
“The Military Friendly Franchises® list was created three years ago out of demand from military veterans, many of whom want to start or own their own business but are unclear where to begin,” said Sean Collins, director for G.I. Jobs. “Being selected as a Military Friendly Franchise places Tasti D-Lite in this elite group, and is testimony to Tasti D-Lite’s world class programs and policies that support military veterans interested franchise opportunities.”
