Choice Hotels International named among Top 50 Franchises for Minorities for third consecutive year

Choice Hotels International, Inc., one of the world's leading lodging franchisors, has announced that it has been selected as one of the top 50 franchises for minorities by the National Minority Franchising Initiative (NMFI), an organization which serves to expand the number of minorities in franchising, for the third consecutive year.

"We are extremely honored to receive this recognition for the third consecutive year," said Brian Parker, vice president of emerging markets and new business development for Choice Hotels. "Diversity and inclusion is vital to our organization's success and long-term growth therefore we are fully committed to the recruitment, development, and retention of our minority franchisees."

Examples of the company's efforts to encourage minority recruitment include the creation and growth of the Choice Hotels African American Owners Alliance and the Choice Hotels Hispanic Owners Alliance which are organizations designed to provide additional support for franchisees, serving as a forum to share knowledge and best practices, and a platform for recruiting new minority business owners into the Choice system.

Choice Hotels International, Inc. currently franchises approx. 6,000 hotels in the United States and more than 30 other countries and territories. The company owns a number of brands including Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality, Sleep Inn and Clarion. (kbp)
