Join us for one of our Nation’s most innovative and stimulating initiatives, Building Black Franchise Ownership in the US. This free national webcast was launched during Black History month earlier this year by its host and Franchise Consultant, Henry Snorton, III, CEcD, FranNet of Kentucky and Indiana, franchise owners Ramona Butler, GymGuyz, Louisville, Kentucky, and Anthony Pollard, 360 Painting, South Central Maryland. It grew from a one-time event to a series. The goal is to increase the number of black-owned franchises through awareness, guidance, and access.

The USA Today reports that franchises help African Americans ‘level the financial playing field’ and Black entrepreneurs have thrived in franchising for years and are choosing this route over founding traditional small businesses at a faster rate than the broader population. FranFund, a company that assist franchisees fund their franchise startup and development state that minorities own 31% of franchise businesses, while minorities have only 19% ownership in non-franchised businesses.

Together, Snorton, Butler and Pollard delivered educational and empowering presentations about the franchising process in February and each of the following webcasts presented one of the 6 components in the process: Selecting the Best Fit (franchise) for You in July and Investing in You to Fund Your Startup with special guest Tera Thomas, Fran Fund in August. Each previously recorded webcast is available in audio and video by clicking the links above.
