PostNet has been selected by the World Franchising Network (WFN) as one of its Top 26 Franchises for Hispanics for 2010. The results were published in the July issue of PODER Magazine, the successor to Hispanic Enterprise.
The WFN developed the list based on a rigorous analysis of several factors, including historical performance, brand identification, franchisee satisfaction, training, on-going support and financial stability. Another important determinant is the percentage of existing franchises that are Hispanic-owned, as well as the number of Hispanics in the franchisor’s top levels of management.
“We are very excited and honored to be a part of this list and being named Top 26 franchises for Hispanics,” said PostNet CEO Steven J. Greenbaum. “This recognition is a true testament to our hard work and commitment to helping people find their perfect business opportunity.”
The Top Franchises for Hispanics list was initially compiled by the National Minority Franchising Initiative (NMFI), a program launched by World Franchising Network (WFN) in 2000 to level the playing field and meet the needs of a largely under-represented market.
“Based on the results of this year’s survey, 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,” notes WFN Founder Rob Bond.
