Did you know how the name "Century 21" came from? The first suggestion for the company name was "Twentieth Century", but they could not get the name registered. then they tried "21st Century" but no one liked that name and then came "Century21" which at the time was thought to be futuristic and the company name was born.
Also, when "Century 21" recruited Bud Schultz, he was working as the national franchise sales director for a real estate firm called "Red Carpet" and the sales staff all wore red jackets. He agreed to leave Red Carpet on the condition Centurey 21 adopt and wear the now famous mustart gold jackets.
