Valdosta - A pizza franchise has a program to help veterans transition into civilian life.

Patricia Evans is a former Naval petty officer.

Once retired she wanted to become a Little Caesars franchisee.

She qualified for Little Caesars Veterans Program, which gave her $10,000 off her franchise fee and discounts on equipment.

Her Baytree Road store just opened Wednesday in Valdosta.

Now she's relying on her disciplined military skills to help her run the business.  "Its all the skills I was taught in the military. It's attention to details, it's a process, this is the way it works and you don't deviate from that and the leadership skills I learned. It all goes hand in hand," Evans says.

Veterans who enter the Little Caesars Program are eligible up to $68,000.

Patricia says she'll also offer a military discount.
