Hispanic Business Owners and Latino Entrepreneurs Are Driving the Expansion and Growth of US Franchises

Existing and Aspiring Hispanic Entrepreneurs Are Connecting Directly to Franchises via (USA in Spanish) and (Mexico and Latin America)

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - Oct 16, 2013) -  Hispanic Franchise Online (MFV Expositions partner) and the MFV Group Mexico reached an agreement to stimulate the growth of sales of American franchises not only in the US and Mexico markets but also in other key Latin American countries.

Through the agreement between Hispanic Franchise Online and MFV Mexico, US franchises with a regional vision can now promote their franchise systems on two sites, reaching a larger market and having greater growth potential. These sites are:

  •, which is the only bilingual marketplace for existing and aspiring Hispanic entrepreneurs that helps them find franchises and official business opportunities in the United States. 

  •, which is the most important franchise portal in Mexico and other key Latin American countries, generating more contacts than any other portal at much lower costs than other media channels. 

Both and permit business owners and entrepreneurs to connect directly with franchise companies that are interested in recruiting franchisees who speak Spanish.

According to Jose Torres, the Director of, "This collaboration will represent an aggregate value for the franchises that have a regional vision since it offers market channels that did not previously exist."

There are more than 50 million Hispanics in the United States, many of whom have the interest and initial investment level necessary to start their own business. 

The synergy between the United States and Mexico is further deepened due to the fact that in Mexico, there is a population of over 112 million people and according to reports from the National Bureau of Economic Research, almost a fourth of the workers in Mexico are self-employed and/or business owners. 

Besides reaching US Hispanics, American franchises will now be able to recruit Mexican businessmen and women and entrepreneurs for the expansion of their franchise business models in Mexico, and from there to Colombia, Panama and Costa Rica through the agreement between the Mexican Association of Franchises and ProMexico.
