A new class of Raleigh entrepreneurs is taking advantage of programs for minorities, athletes, and veterans, according to Black Enterprise magazine, which ranks Jan-Pro International among its “Great Franchise Opportunities for African Americans” in its November issue.
“These brands and concepts offer the best business opportunities based on minority participation, veteran incentives, franchisee satisfaction, growth industries, low-to-medium cost of entry, and store success rates,” the magazine reported.
Black Enterprise not only identified what it described as the hottest sectors poised to flourish within an industry, but also spotlighted franchise education and recruitment programs targeting athletes, veterans, and minorities. Jan-Pro is included among the Black Enterprise top 25 list showcasing franchises or “best bets” for Raleigh Entrepreneurs.
All of the businesses including Jan-Pro are within what Black Enterprise called high-growth categories that have low-to-medium startup costs, high franchisee satisfaction, and a significant number of black-owned or veteran-owned units because of effective diversity initiatives and incentives.
