To honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Franchise.com reflects on franchises which serve others in a positive way and which create opportunity for all who seek it.
Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’ – Martin Luther King, Jr.
Like nurses, educators or those in the clergy who may have experienced “a calling” to their profession, you may feel drawn or compelled to one line of work over another. Of course most franchises serve the general population and stimulate the economy by providing
jobs in one way or another, but there are also franchises which go above and beyond that purpose; franchises which care for the elderly, children, the disadvantaged or impaired.
