December 07, 2010 // Franchising.com // Ann Arbor, MI - The National Minority Franchising Initiative (NMFI) has compiled its annual list of the "50 Top Franchises for Minorities" and Mr. Handyman ranked high on the list.
The NMFI selected the franchisors from among hundreds of franchise companies in the running that have more than 50 units open. Each participating franchisor was required to submit its most recent Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) and the marketing package that is sent to prospective franchisees, as well as a completed questionnaire. The questionnaire noted the number (both absolute and as a percentage of the total number) of operating units by minorities, as well as the number of minorities in senior management that earned more than $60,000 per year.
These full results were featured in the November 5 issue of USA TODAY in the Franchising Today section. A copy of the article can be found here. For a list of the companies only, please click here.
