More than 100 of the United States franchising and business elite gathered on Nov. 15, 2017 to officially dedicate the new Titus Center for Franchising at Palm Beach Atlantic University’s Rinker School of Business, in West Palm Beach, FL. Ray Titus, founder of United Franchise Group (UFG) and benefactor of the one-of-a-kind incubator, joined Robert Cresanti, President and CEO of the International Franchise Association, and University President William B. Fleming, Jr. at the standing-room-only event. Students who are looking to one day own and operate their own business can be educated and trained in franchising and entrepreneurship through the university’s Rinker School of Business. In addition to funding the center, UFG will also provide hands-on internship opportunities at the company’s 50,000 square foot worldwide headquarters in West Palm Beach. UFG is the Global Leader For Entrepreneurs, with over 1,400 franchise locations spanning 80 countries,
“Franchising can open the door to financial independence for entrepreneurs and jobs for hundreds of thousands of employees. It embodies the American spirit of opportunity and I am both honored and humbled that my family and our now 1400-plus organization can help provide opportunities for the next generation of business men and women,” Titus said.
