"My wife told me about how the company supports Military Veterans with one of the best financial incentives in the industry. With more than 20 years of experience in the Army, I knew I had the management skills to run my own business, but most franchise opportunities were too cost prohibitive for me. After seeing the company's Veteran incentive program, it was obvious that Baskin-Robbins was the way to go." - Ken Lewis, VA
