360clean Recognized for their Commitment to the Development of Minority Owned Businesses
Specialized Janitorial Franchise Selected to Top 50 Franchises for Minorities
Charleston, SC (PRWEB) November 02, 2012 - 360clean, the fast growing specialized commercial janitorial franchise headquartered in Charleston, South Carolina, is pleased to announce that they have been selected by the National Minority Franchising Initiative (NMFI) as one of the Top 50 Franchises for Minorities, as reported in the October 12, 2012 edition of the USA Today newspaper.
In order to determine which companies would be included, the NMFI examined criteria including, but not limited to, the company’s commitment to recruitment, number of franchises awarded, and on-going support of minorities through actions. Currently, 75% of 360clean’s unit franchisees are minority-owned, with many of them acting as mentors for new franchise owners. Anthony Brown, both a minority and a US Army veteran, is 360clean’s most successful franchise owner and will often talk to those interested in owning a 360clean franchise to help ease their fears concerning business ownership. His unique perspective makes him the perfect ambassador for 360clean to reach out to those within minority communities.
“We are so proud to be included on this list of outstanding companies who have shown to provide opportunities for minority-owned businesses and leadership,” said Barry Bodiford, Founder and CEO of 360clean. “My biggest hope is that this distinction will encourage those individuals who fall within the category of being a minority, and have been apprehensive about owning a business, to get in touch with us and see what we have to offer.”
