The Expedia Franchise Opportunity
“I have always dreamed of owning my own business and had extensive experience in corporate America. The support of the Expedia CruiseShipCenters franchise system allows me to capitalize on my experience while taking advantage of a proven system. I’m not left to re-invent the wheel.”
“The idea of a big digital company also doing brick-and-mortar locations to appeal to every segment of the market was attractive to me and I felt that it was very forward-looking. Expedia is a household name that has instant credibility and instant familiarity with our customers. That is a big differentiator from most of our competitors who don’t have a big brand for people to connect with.”
“I would absolutely spend another 23 years in this business. You don’t have to retire to see the world. It’s wonderful when you’re on a cruise to look up your reports on CruiseDesk and see that your agents are selling for you. You’re making a living while also enjoying all the fruits of being a part of Expedia CruiseShipCenters!”
“Initially we used Expedia CruiseShipCenters as a benchmark for some other franchise options we were considering and the more we benchmarked, the more we liked ECSC. They have an excellent track record and reputation in leisure travel, top notch systems, incredible leadership and place an emphasis on improving quality of life for their Franchise Owners – we couldn’t ask for much more.”
