We invited franchise brands across the country to fill out a rigorous survey about their companies as well as their accommodations for military service members and veterans. Fifty-three made the cut for our latest Military Times Best: Franchises rankings.
The Military Times Best: Colleges 2018 rankings are out, and 218 schools made the list. The rankings were more competitive than ever this year, as a record number of schools participated in our annual survey, and less than half made the cut.
We used data from multiple sources to compare locations across three broad categories: veteran and military culture and services, economic indicators — some veteran-specific and some not — and livability factors such as crime, health, school quality and traffic.
