Franchising goes to school: for the second year, a number of high schools and colleges around the country are participating in the Franchising Entrepreneurship Program conducted by the IFA Educational Foundation, with sponsorship from the PepsiCo Foundation. This program explores ways to attract and train minority and urban youth to careers in franchising. (Education & Training).
The participating schools are Townview Magnet School, Dallas, Texas; Norman Thomas High School, New York City; Western High School, Davie, Florida; Maria High School, Chicago; Bethune Cookman College, Daytona Beach; Miami Dade Community College; and Chicago State University. A number of IFA members are serving as volunteer advisors with the school projects, including Ken Myres, Tony Roma's, Inc.; Nicole Johnson-Reece, Cendant Corp.; Lynette McKee, MetroMedia Restaurant Group; and Tara Cope and Amy Ware of Piper Rudnick LLP.
