Diversity is Essential for Franchise Growth

Contrary to what we often see and hear in society today, the inclusion of more people around the table, additional voices in the room, and shared experiences and life lessons are absolutely critical to any business organization’s growth, specifically in franchising.  Like the organic vegetables planted and harvested around the country, we grow as people, as companies and as leaders when our eyes, ears, minds and arms are open to all people.
