POMPANO BEACH, FL, November 08, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Anago Cleaning Systems (Anago), a leading commercial cleaning franchise with more than 2,400 Unit Franchises throughout the U.S. and internationally, was recently named as one of the Top 50 Franchises for Minorities for the fouth consecutive year. The honor was published in the seventh annual USA Today - Franchising Today issue on October 25, 2013.
"We are honored to be included in this year's USA Today - Franchising Today selection," said David Povlitz, Chairman of Anago. "We are proud to be acknowledged as a company that enables entrepreneurs from all backgrounds to fulfill their dreams of business ownership. Our Franchisees are very diverse, but share in a similar goal: to become successful and create opportunities for others."
The survey, designed by the National Minority Franchising Initiative (NMFI), selected the top 50 franchises for minorities out of over 400 assessed franchises. For the purposes of the survey, minorities included African-Americans, Hispanics, Asian-Americans and others. The final selection was based on two factors: the participation of minority groups among franchised and company-owned units, and minority representation among senior management.
Among the top 50 franchises listed, Anago was also highlighted in the report's recommendation of companies with "exceptional records in the minority makeup of their franchised operations and/or senior management."
Anago's inclusion in the highlighted selection was based on its outstanding numbers - of its over 2,000 Unit Franchises, 89 percent are owned by minorities. In addition, half of the Anago management team is comprised of representatives from minority groups.
"This recognition shows that the Anago franchise model appeals to many different groups of people, who can find long-term success in the ever-growing, 100 billion dollar commercial cleaning industry," Povlitz said.
This is not the first time that Anago has been acknowledged for its achievements in the industry. Just recently, the company was ranked 7th on a list of Entrepreneur Magazine's Top Home Based Franchises for its Unit Franchise opportunity, and 10th on the magazine's list of Fastest-Growing Franchises for 2013.
Since its inception in 1989, Anago has continued to build new relationships within the industry, quickly becoming one of the most recognized names in commercial cleaning. The company is positioned on the fast track for growth, opening more than 400 locations in the past two years.
Anago Cleaning Systems is a commercial cleaning franchise system supporting over 30 Master Franchises and 2,400 Unit Franchisees in the U.S. and internationally. After years of refining procedures and creating duplicable systems created in his large commercial cleaning service, David Povlitz founded Anago in 1989 to help other entrepreneurs open their cleaning businesses. Today, its program sets the standard worldwide in commercial cleaning.
