Hands on involvement from the executive team
Empire Hospitality is proud to be one of five Prime Vendors in the country authorized to bid and manage contracts for the Military Entrance Processing Stations (MEPS). MEPS is a joint service organization staffed with military and civilians. Their primary focus is to determine an applicant’s physical qualifications, aptitude, and moral standards set by each military branch, the Department of Defense, and federal law. Local MEPS branches conduct applicant testing and physicals as part of the applicant’s approval process to enter the military.
The Department of Defense oversees the MEPS program and provides lodging, meals, and transportation for applicants interested in joining the military. MEPS requires accommodations Sunday through Thursday and approximately thirty Fridays per year with most rooms having double occupancy. The applicants will be provided dinner the evening of check-in and breakfast the morning of check out. Specifications may vary from city to city.
