Hiring and serving our heroes.

Our Military

No one understands leadership, teamwork or dedication like the men and women who have served our great country, who we call our heroes. RMH Franchise is proudly committed to being an employer of choice for military personnel and their families. We recruit, hire and focus on upward mobility for the men and women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Since 2015, we have recruited and hired more than 100 military candidates into manager positions.

RMH has established a culture of opportunity for military personnel. Our hiring process is tailored to understand and identify military personnel’s strengths and the key leadership skills that will make them successful in our restaurants. RMH Franchise maintains a constant presence at military job fairs and has developed strong relationships with military transition resources.

At RMH Franchise, we take PRIDE in our partnership with the military and consider it an honor to provide opportunities to the men and women who serve our country. Our future is bright. Join team RMH today.

Veterans Eat Free on Veterans Day!

During our Veterans Day celebration, we fill every one of our restaurants with veterans and their families. This is just one small way we can give something back to the men and women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Supporting the communities we serve.

We believe in giving back to the communities where our team members and guests live and work. RMH Franchise restaurants conduct regular fundraisers for local and national charities. And our team members contribute to The Jackson Fund, which provides financial support for our team members who are facing significant hardship.

Folds of Honor

We're proud to stand with Folds of Honor, an organization dedicated to providing educational scholarships to the spouses and children of America's fallen and disabled service-members. We've raised over $100,000 for Folds of Honor since 2018.

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation

We have raised over $350,000 in support for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), a national childhood cancer foundation dedicated to raising funds for research into new treatments and cures for all children battling cancer.

Local Support

We are always looking for ways to give back to the communities we serve. That means regularly supporting local schools, teams and area charities through our Flapjack Fundraisers, along with other local area fundraising and charitable giving programs.

More on Local Support

The Jackson Fund

The Jackson Fund was established in 2012 to provide financial assistance to members of our team who find themselves in a financial crisis, brought on by a catastrophic life event. The Jackson Fund is supported solely by and for RMH team members.

About the Jackson Fund

We hire, develop and train the very best in a culture where the sky’s the limit. Our vision is to be a thriving and respected restaurant company that creates experiences where team members want to be and guests want to go. We are achieving this vision by putting our people and our guests first. Find out how you can join team RMH.
