Mr. Appliance among "Top 50 Franchises for Minorities"

Ranks on World Franchising Network's 8th annual list

WACO, Texas (PRWEB) November 07, 2014 - The World Franchising Network has compiled its 8th annual list of the "50 Top Franchises for Minorities." The results are in the Oct. 24, 2014 issue of USA TODAY in the Franchising Today section.

Mr. Appliance, a leading appliance service franchise, is among those listed.

"The steady increase in minority representation in franchising over the last several years is very encouraging," said Rob Bond, founder and president of the World Franchising Network. "Franchisors continue to make a concerted effort to reach out to minorities, which is ultimately highly beneficial in the long run to all parties involved."

The World Franchising Network selected 50 franchisors from hundreds of companies requesting evaluation for inclusion in the listing. Participants were required to answer a questionnaire that noted the number of operating units owned or managed by minorities, as well as the number of minorities in senior management.

There was no cost to participate in the survey. The only constraint was that franchisors had to have more than 40 operating units. Mr. Appliance to date has more than 160 locations in the U.S. in addition to locations in Canada, and has been franchising since 1996.

"It is an honor to be among the Top 50 Franchises for minorities," said Doug Rogers, president of Mr. Appliance. "This award reflects our dedication to our Code of Values and conducting business with respect and integrity."

Mr. Appliance is not only among Top Franchises for Minorities but for Veterans as well. In 2014, Mr. Appliance won five awards, with two of these awards centered on their franchise sales to Veterans.
