Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) July 10, 2013
Building on the recent momentum of Small Business Week and the International Franchise Expo, Empowerkit decided to look back and profile 50 pioneers who have collectively helped shape the franchise industry into the powerful economic growth engine that it is today.
“Franchising is a $2 trillion industry, and one of the largest drivers of job growth and economic output,” stated Empowerkit CEO Chris Anderson. “We wanted to identify and celebrate the trail blazers who have helped forge the path for the industry’s proliferation and success, while increasing public awareness of the economic impact of franchising.”
After the website’s launch, visitors will be able to vote on their favorite pioneers. The 10 highest-voted pioneers will be a part of an upcoming series that will take a more in-depth look into each individual, and all voters will also receive a free printed copy of the series.
“We felt that it was important to recognize these innovators, and launching an interactive website was a perfect way to pay homage,” said Anderson. “Being able to read about each pioneer is inspiring, and we think the voting element will help to make the experience more interactive and engaging for visitors.”
