Veteran / Minority Options
MULTICORP is proud to offer veteran and minority opportunities to own a MULTICORP commercial cleaning franchise. Franchises are available at a discount to honorably discharged veterans and minorities. When you contact our office, mention that you are a veteran or minority interested in our special franchise expansion opportunities.
MULTICORP is a member of both VetFran and Minority Fran, both initiatives of the International Franchise Association (IFA).
It is because the community of franchising wishes to honor those who have so bravely served our country that a special program called VetFran was created. With the cooperation of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the Veterans Corporation, and the U.S. Small Business Administration, and with outreach initiatives to our country's military and veteran organizations, the program continues to expand. More than 200 participating member companies, including MULTICORP have agreed to help qualified veterans acquire franchise businesses by providing financial incentives not otherwise available to other franchise investors. Veterans will get the "best deal" from these companies.
The "MinorityFran" initiative works with companies like MULTICORP so minority prospects can explore franchise offerings of companies actively looking to recruit minority franchisees. The initiative will build on relationships forged with leading organizations through the IFA's Diversity Institute, such as the National Urban League, Association of Small Business Development Centers, U.S. Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce, and the Minority Business Development Agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce.
"MinorityFran is designed to assist IFA-member companies that are committed to expanding minority opportunities in franchising at all levels: in employment, in franchise recruitment, and vendor relations," said IFA Diversity Institute Chairman Ronald Harrison. "By working with our partner organizations across the country, we hope to not only increase the numbers of minority franchisees, but to send the message to all communities that franchising is a smart and affordable way to realize the American Dream of small business ownership."
Minorities, including African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans and Native Americans, are expected to account for the major share of new population growth in the U.S. in coming years. Minorities already represent $1.8 trillion in consumer purchasing power according to a 2004 Selig Center study, a number that is expected to increase. In addition, minority-owned businesses are growing at a rate seven times greater than all U.S. businesses according to a 2004 report of the Minority Business Development Agency.
