We proudly recognize our military veterans and the sacrifices that they have made for our country

Hurricane Grill & Wings™, the fast growing restaurant concept featuring fresh cooked-to-order menu items including signature entree salads, Angus burgers, fish and uniquely savory chicken wings, was named to the World Franchising Network’s “50 Top Franchises for Military Veterans” list. Franchises qualifying for the list were evaluated on criteria including: financial incentives provided to military veterans, the number of operating units owned by veterans, and the number of veterans earning more than $60,000 a year in senior management.

“We proudly recognize our military veterans and the sacrifices that they have made for our country,” said Martin O’Dowd, President of Hurricane Grill & Wings™. “Having a strong work ethic and being well disciplined are essential components of being a successful franchisee, and we see these strengths in our nation’s veterans. We are honored to support the men and women who have made such large strides to protect our country.”
