Dunkin’ Brands Group, Inc., the parent company of Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins, announced that it will host a new educational webinar as part of its Diversity in Franchising Initiative in partnership with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
The goal of the initiative, which was announced at the NAACP’s national convention in July, is to increase the number of franchised businesses owned by people of color in both the quick service restaurant sector and across the spectrum of franchise concepts in today’s marketplace.
In support of this objective, Dunkin’ Brands will host a complimentary Franchising 101 webinar on Thursday, November 6 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. (EDT) in collaboration with the International Franchise Association (IFA) Educational Foundation’s Diversity Institute.
This franchising education session, which is open to all individuals interested in learning about the power of franchising, will provide a thorough overview of the industry, franchising business model, resources and tips to get started. Visit http://franchisingevents.dunkinbrands.com to register.
“Dunkin’ Brands and the NAACP are excited to work with the IFA Educational Foundation to provide African-Americans and other entrepreneurs with a path to business ownership,” said Grant Benson, CFE, vice president of global franchising and business development, Dunkin’ Brands.
