Today Empowerkit launched an interactive “Pioneers of Franchising” website to recognize and celebrate the industry’s pivotal figures in history.
Upon entering the site, visitors have the opportunity to read short profiles of fifty pioneers who helped shape the franchise industry into the ever-growing force it is today, and also vote for which pioneer they feel has made the biggest impact on the world of franchising.
Voting polls will be open until July 31, and on August 1 the top ten highest-voted pioneers will be announced. A full tribute series featuring an in-depth look at each of the top ten will be launched in dedication to the trailblazers.
“Franchising is a $2 trillion industry, and one of the largest drivers of job growth and economic output,” stated Empowerkit CEO Chris Anderson. “We felt that it was important to recognize these innovators, and launching an interactive website was a perfect way to pay homage.”
You can visit the site and vote for your favorite franchising pioneer here.
All voters will received a free printed copy of the tribute series.
