Palm Beach Atlantic Business Program Will Create New Generation of Franchise Owners
Home Run Franchises, a Nashville, Tennessee-based franchisor of four home service franchise brands, announced a new incentive program for graduates of the Titus Center for Franchising at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The incentive program awards a franchise to any graduate or MBA student who demonstrates a passion for franchise ownership and meets the start-up financial requirements (less than $20,000). Recipients do not pay the initial franchise fee, making franchise ownership possible for most graduates by steeply reducing the startup investment.
Home Run Franchises was founded by Thomas Scott, a career franchisor and franchise industry supplier. Scott has helped more than 12,000 people open franchises and has helped grow more than 380 franchise systems over 25 years. Scott founded seven franchise brands. His Home Run Franchises brands specifically target young, Generation Z owners. The brands are Up Closets, Dryer Vent Superheroes, The Lighting Squad and Window Film Squad.
Scott is a member of the Titus Center Advisory Board and provides internships to Titus Center students.
“We believe Generation Z entrepreneurs make the perfect franchise owners. They bring a unique set of skills and drive to the table,” said Scott. “Unfortunately, many franchise companies dismiss these young entrepreneurs, mistakenly thinking they lack skills or financial means. Our incentive program allows young entrepreneurs to get started in a life-long career of franchise ownership starting at an early age.”
