Franchise Opportunities Handbook.
Office of Minority Business Enterprise (DOC), Washington, DC.
Franchising continues to be one of the rapidly growing forms of business because it offers a means through which an individual with limited capital and experience can own or operate his own business. The publication, in its eighth edition, identifies franchisors who do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national origin in the availability, terms, or conditions of their franchises. The listing of equal opportunity franchisors provides a brief summary of the terms, requirements, and conditions under which the franchises are available. The introductory section includes general information on franchising, suggestions, and checklists to assist and protect the potential investor, leads to other sources of information, and an identification of both governmental and private organizations which can assist minority group entrepreneurs. The sole purpose of the listing is to identify nondiscriminatory franchisors, and the information included in each listing is provided by the franchisor. The Department of Commerce does not represent the list as complete and does not guarantee, or assume responsibility for, transactions resulting from use of the information. (Author)
