ServiceMaster, based in Memphis, Tenn., will announce a substantial financial commitment to minority franchise development during its "Fulfilling the Dream" reception April 2, 2008, at the Peabody Hotel.

Memphis-based minority franchise owners and 2008 Shane Battier Franchise Scholarship recipients will be available for interviews to give their first-hand accounts of the positive impact the ServiceMaster commitment has made on their lives, and the actions they have taken to build a successful franchise. ServiceMaster executives who are driving the diversity development initiative will also be available for comment.
