August 25, 2011 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA - Maid Brigade has been honored as a top 25 franchise for Hispanics for 2011 by the World Franchising Network (WFN). The WFN selected franchises based on a rigorous analysis of factors including their: historical performance, brand identification, franchisee satisfaction, training, ongoing support, and financial stability. Other important determinants were the percentage of existing franchises that were Hispanic-owned and the number of Hispanics in the franchisor's top levels of management. Winners were featured in the August issue of PODER Magazine.
"We are extremely pleased to notice both the increase in the number of Hispanic-owned franchisees, as well as the increased Hispanic representation among the top management. There is no question that the franchising community is increasingly aware of the economic power and underlying talents within the Latino community. Over time, Latinos will realize their full potential and the playing field will indeed be level. Hopefully, that day is not far off,"Â noted WFN Founder Rob Bond.
"We're thrilled to be recognized as a franchise committed to providing business opportunities among the Hispanic community,"Â says Bart Puett, president of the cleaning service franchise Maid Brigade. "As we continue to expand our domestic and international footprint we hope to attract more Hispanic prospects."Â
The Top Franchises for Hispanics list was initially compiled by the National Minority Franchising Initiative (NMFI), a program launched by WFN in 2000 to level the playing field and meet the needs of a largely under-represented market. The WFN, which manages the www.MinorityFranchising.com website, the Minority Franchise Guide publication, and franchise-related events throughout the country, represents an effective and cost-efficient tool for franchisors to increase minority representation within their systems.

Also ranked a â€œTop 100â€Â franchise by Entrepreneur magazine and a â€œTop 50â€Â Franchise opportunity for both Minorities and Veterans by USA Today, Maid Brigade is a low investment, high return, and recession resistant business opportunity that offers a great lifestyle.
