Its main goals are:
1. Minority Fran's first goal is to help increase the "numbers of minority franchisees" across all states in the US. This is achieved through the IFA website and relevant associations but in particular its annual seminars and conferences.
2. Minority Fran's second goal is "to send the message to all communities that franchising is a smart and affordable way to realize the American Dream of small business ownership."
