Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) October 28, 2009
SalesPartners Worldwide, an innovative sales and personal growth training company, has been recognized as one of the "50 Top Franchises for Minorities" according to the National Minority Franchising Initiative (NMFI). This is the third year the organization has compiled such a list.
SalesPartners Worldwide was launched 2005 and provides business development solutions to small to mid-sized businesses, entrepreneurs, sales managers, network marketers, and truly any individual or organization wanting to learn how to build sales, build business, and build themselves. Through workshops, seminars, small-group trainings, one-on-one mentoring, books and other training materials, SalesPartners' clients have historically been able to incrementally grow and build their respective businesses. There are currently more than 60 SalesPartners franchise offices located in 8 countries. The organization projects an additional 140 locations within the next 18 months.
"It is a true honor to be recognized as a top minority franchise by the NMFI. We feel the SalesPartners franchise opportunity is one which provides the franchisee with products that are truly needed in the market place. Our offerings include products, services, and programs which I have developed through decades of personal development training, entrepreneurial business ownership, consulting with major corporations, and leading workshops and seminars in more than 20 countries. I personally believe that owning a business and succeeding in that business is a right that every person should have; it is the SalesPartners mission to make that happen," says SalesPartners co-founder and CEO Blair Singer, entrepreneur, bestselling author and international speaker.
The NMFI selected 50 franchisors from hundreds of companies requesting evaluation for inclusion in the article. In order to be considered for the list, a franchisor had to have in excess of 50 operating units. Each participating franchisor was required to submit its Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), marketing materials, and a completed questionnaire. The questionnaire noted the number (both absolute and as a percentage of the total number) of operating units owned by minorities, as well as the number of minorities in senior management that earned over $60,000 per year.
"We are extremely pleased to see that, even in this poor economy, so many franchisors still have an active interest in attracting more minority franchisees," said NMFI Co-Founder Rob Bond. "Given this huge underserved market, there is still a great deal of work that has to be done to bring minorities up to parity with the market."
The NMFI top minority ranking list was featured in the October 2, 2009 issue of USA Today in the Franchising Today section.
