First, the documentation for NonlinearModelFit shows NMimimize is an available method. Next, there is documentation for NMinimize that describes what it does. Finally, there are two tutorials on optimization that provide considerable details on NMimimize and other optimization functions in Mathematica. All of the above information can be readily found in the documentation center starting with the documentation page for NonlinearModelFit and following the appropriate links.
