Inspiration Meets Opportunity During National Hispanic Heritage Month

By FranFund on Sep 15, 2020 11:19:36 AM

The period from September 15th through October 15th is National Hispanic Heritage Month, which celebrates Hispanic and Latino Americans’ contributions and achievements. This celebration starts mid-month because it began in 1968 as a commemorative week, and in 1988, it was extended to a full month.

Hispanic and Latino Americans make up an incredibly diverse group of cultures. They comprise nearly 60 million people and represent Americans with cultural ties to all Spanish-speaking and Latin American countries and dependencies. It should come as no surprise that their contributions to the business world have been rich and varied!

Latino entrepreneurship in the Americas began over 500 years ago before our country was even founded. Some of the first Latino-owned enterprises in the United States included ranching, farming, and shop ownership.

Today, many of our country’s most innovative and disruptive entrepreneurs are from Hispanic and Latino backgrounds.

FranFund's Journey Toward Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion (DEI)

By FranFund on Sep 1, 2020 9:07:39 AM

There’s no getting around it. Our country has experienced a painful and challenging summer. In addition to the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve been confronted with longstanding issues of race relations and systemic racial injustice. FranFund stands with the Black community and all Americans of color. We hope that our country can grow stronger as we acknowledge these problems and work to fix them, rather than hiding from them or remaining silent.

The issues of inequality and disproportionate police bias against Black Americans hit us close to home last fall, when Atatiana Jefferson was killed in her own home three miles south of our Fort Worth headquarters. Following her death, our CEO Geoff Seiber was moved to engage with our local Black business leaders, with the goal of determining what we can do to help. In his words, “We had to do more.”

Franchise Sectors Primed for Post-Lockdown Growth

By FranFund on Jun 29, 2020 3:30:00 PM

Much attention has been paid to large companies that have thrived throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and the Great Lockdown. A few tech and eCommerce giants may come to mind. There has also been considerable focus on the retail sectors that have been upended, and the thousands of small businesses forced to shut their doors.

COVID-19 isn’t going away anytime soon, but localized reopenings have been underway for almost two months. Several recession-resistant sectors are showing signs of life and are poised to grow post-lockdown. This is an ideal time to consider ways to capitalize as a potential small business owner, or as a current small business owner considering a pivot. All crises end, and new leaders always emerge.

The franchising business model has unique advantages during recessions and in their aftermaths. Unlike starting from square one, you’re investing in a proven system, which lowers risk. The parent organization’s resources provide unmatched support and stability that is often essential in times of uncertainty. And crises provide rare opportunities to see how franchisors perform when the stakes are highest.
