Layton, UT (Vocus/PRWEB) April 05, 2011
The article announcing the recipients of the prestigious award in USA Today stated: “Recognizing the need for a national forum to address the under-representation of minorities in the U.S. franchising community, the National Minority Franchising Initiative was organized in 1999 by Robert Bond. The 2000 program included publishing the first edition of The Minority Franchise Guide, developing this website and putting on seven seminars on minority franchising.”
The NMFI's core program includes raising franchise awareness in target markets by delivering high quality, readily-accessible products in the areas of publications, electronic media and education and training.
According to Mr. Bond, “There can be little doubt that minorities have made remarkable inroads in franchising over the past decade. Whereas minorities may have accounted for only 5 or 6% of total franchisees (and managers of company-owned units) in 2000, the consensus is that today they account for well in excess of 15%. This is quite a remarkable testament not only to the industry’s reaching out to minorities, but to the underlying values and entrepreneurial talents that minorities contribute.”
“We believe that Real Property Management provides an excellent opportunity for all individuals interested in owning and building a successful property management business and will reap the benefits of hard work, with the aid of sound property management tools and business practices. We are pleased to provide our proven property management business model to all persons and to be recognized by the National Minority Franchising Initiative as one of the top franchises for minorities”, says Kirk McGary, President of Real Property Management.
The USA Today article suggests that the list of 50 named franchises is an excellent starting point in a search for an optimal franchise to fit your requirements. Further, to the extent that you are a minority, there is no question that these companies are clearly doing something right and that you will be in good company.
