Little Caesars Enterprises Inc. has launched a program in which qualified, honorably discharged veterans can receive $10,000 in benefits toward starting a Little Caesars pizza business -- a $5,000 franchise fee reduction for the first store and a $5,000 credit on the initial equipment order. Service-disabled veterans are eligible for enhanced benefits of up to $68,000. For details contact Donna Halinski or Rachel Simpson in Lansing, Mich., at 1-517-372-4400.

Within the next year Safeway stores in Colorado will install equipment designed to protect the privacy and security of shoppers with visual impairments. The new devices plug into existing point-of-sale payment machines and have tactile keys arranged like a standard telephone keypad. They will allow Safeway shoppers who have difficulty reading information on a touchscreen to privately and independently enter their PIN, telephone number, and other confidential information.
