Advantages of Hispanic Franchise Business Opportunities
Starting any new business involves a huge amount of planning, finances, collection of resources and much more. One of the best options in such cases is to opt in for a franchise model of an established business. This gives the small entrepreneur a ready and complete outline of the business, including initiating plans and possible opportunities for further growth and expansion. The financial investments are of much more manageable proportions. A big chunk of the members of minority communities, particularly the Hispanic or Latino population, are involved in franchise businesses. The Franchised Business Ownership survey conducted in 2007 by the International Franchise Association’s (IFA) Educational Foundation, states that ownership by minorities contributes to 19.3 percent of all franchisees, and Hispanic business franchises account for 5.8 percent of the overall segment.
The advantages of Hispanic franchise business opportunities are immense for both the communities and the business corporate. One of the biggest benefits is that it creates job opportunities within the community. A Latino business franchise owner opening up a business outlet in his own neighborhood helps to open up jobs for the members of his community living in that area. Unemployment rates go down so does the propensity towards crime and misdemeanor. Gainful employment gives the community a more positive outlook. According to the Small Business Administration, franchise models generate approximately 300,000 jobs every year.
Hispanic business franchise channels contribute greatly towards expansion of the society. These franchise owners have now been able to infiltrate the urban business areas which were lacking in minority business population. Many big chain restaurants and convenience stores are now offering special funding for Latino business owners, and working directly with minority associations to employ additional businessmen from these communities, thus helping the society grow.
Franchise businesses run by people from the Latino community helps to expand cultural reach. The parent companies are able to reach out and tap the massive potential of involving Latino business owners into their fold and in turn reap the benefits of the huge number of prospective customers from those communities. Chains such as Burger King, Dominos Pizza and McDonald’s have chalked out various business plans and marketing campaigns to attract and rope in Hispanic business owners. Programs such as ‘Real People, Real Success’, devised by Burger King or ‘Delivering the Dream’ ad campaign planned by Dominos Pizza, are aimed at members of the Latino and other minority communities. These campaigns and programs help prospective businessmen achieve their dreams of owning a business and outline the involvement of other Hispanic franchise owners and employees to amplify the diversity among the franchise business owners. Products and food items, specifically created by the parent firms for these communities provide a great opportunity to attract the consumers from this area and meet their needs.
Franchise business models act as a way for Hispanic business owners towards improving their lifestyles and achieving their goals in life. The ready business blueprints serve as a guide for establishing and running a business successfully. The entire family can also be involved in the operations, thus appeasing the family oriented Latino community.
