USA Today Named Eye Level as One of the Top 50 Franchises for Minorities

October 30, 2013 // // Eye Level is proud to announce it has been recognized by USA Today as one of the 50 Top Franchises for Minorities, as selected by the National Minority Franchising Initiative (NMFI). According to the NMFI, Eye Level was selected for this honor based on its commitment to the recruitment and advancement of minorities within the company.

More than 400 companies were evaluated by the NMFI. Selection was based in part on the percentage of franchises that are minority-owned, and to date, 74% of Eye Level’s more than 200 franchised units are minority-owned.

"This national recognition is truly an honor for our company," says Xavier Kim, vice president of franchising. "Our franchisees have played a crucial role in the expansion of our company in the United States, and we are dedicated to minority franchise ownership while providing franchisees with the tools they need to own and grow a successful business."

The 50 Top Franchises for Minorities list appeared in the Oct. 25, 2013 weekend edition, in the Franchising Today section. The paper was also distributed to attendees of the West Coast Franchise Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center in California.

Eye Level currently has single- and multi-unit ownership opportunities available and offers protected territories. To become an Eye Level franchisee, individuals must possess a minimum net worth of $150,000 and at least $75,000 in liquid assets. The standard franchise fee is $20,000. As members of the VetFran program, the company offers a $10,000 discount off the franchise fee for qualified veterans and their immediate families, in addition to presenting a $5,000 discount to qualified multi-unit owners.

This year, Eye Level signed more than 60 new franchise agreements and opened more than 40 learning centers nationwide, growing the company to more than 1,250 learning centers worldwide.
