Who We Are

We Are The Future of Franchising and the

Latino Business Community in The United States

 

Saving the American Economy
Supporting Latino Business Creators Succeed

  • Latinos develop new businesses at a faster pace than any other national group in the U.S.  
  • The accelerated pace and expansion of new franchise business creation can impact intergenerational wealth and prosperity unlike any other business model within the Latino Community. 
  • Franchising represents a logical next step in the Latino community. 
  • The “turn-key” approach and team-based management and support are features of the model that can transform Latino business development for decades to come.

FACT: By 2060 the US Latino population is estimated at 128 million, dramatically changing the American economy.

FACT:  “The U.S. Latino cohort has accounted for nearly 80% of the net new additions to our labor force during the past decade, while also accounting for 52% of all net new employer businesses, making it our country’s most prolific entrepreneurial cohort.” – Latitude & Latino Donors Collaborative Org.

“With a GDP contribution of 3% to the overall economy in 2022, an overall economic output in nominal dollars reaching over $826B, 8.5 million jobs, and 792,000 establishments, the Franchise Model can no longer be closed to Latinos, the most productive sector of the American economy.” -Rafael Alvarez
