La Quinta Inns & Suites

LQ Management LLC is one of the largest operators of limited-service hotels in the United States, with over 80,000 rooms. Based in Dallas, Texas with over 10,000 employees nationwide, La Quinta operates and provides franchise services to more than 800 hotels in the U.S., Canada and Mexico under La Quinta Inns and La Quinta Inns & Suites brand. We have created an enterprise-wide approach to embracing the military – specifically military families. Encompassing six pillars, our effort starts with hiring veterans and military spouses by providing portable jobs or careers while also offering flexibility and advancement opportunities. Putting people first is embedded in our culture, and those who have a passion for people and service fall in line with two very important core values of the La Quinta employee ethos. We also source from veteran-owned businesses, and have a special program for veterans interested in becoming La Quinta franchisees.

Wayne Goldberg, President and CEO

"At La Quinta, we want to hire veterans and military spouses because they have demonstrated leadership qualities of discipline, training and a passion for service. They are quick learners who work well as part of a team."
