May 16, 2017 // Franchising.com // Fort Lauderdale, Fla. - Jennifer Cron, franchise owner of Dream Vacations – Wanderlist Vacations in Charlotte, N.C., recently awarded a free $10,000 vacation to Rachel Gilmore. The contest is part of a larger nationwide quarterly online contest funded by travel agency franchise Dream Vacations. The Charlotte resident was randomly selected as the winner out of more than 17,000 entries, and she can choose anywhere in the world she wants to go on vacation. She learned she won the contest while hosting the weekly Business Mind, Body Spirit Networking meeting, a passionate group of like-minded/hearted local business owners and entrepreneurs who come together to build relationships, learn and grow, which is where she met Cron.
“I am happy that the winner of the free vacation was one of my clients who signed up on my website, but I am ecstatic that it was Rachel who won the grand prize,” said Cron. “Rachel lives her life in a state of gratitude and is the most appreciative woman I know. And as a single mother who invests so much into our networking group, her business and her girls, she is so very deserving of a dream vacation.”
Gilmore can use the $10,000 to fully fund any type of vacation travel of her choice and she can split the winnings to go on more than one vacation. She has always wanted to travel to Bali and Paris; however, her daughters are encouraging a cruise vacation.
“This is the first year our headquarters team is fully funding more than one million dollars in marketing promotions, and it has already proven successful midway through the second quarter of 2017 as we are on track to have a record-breaking year,” said Rosemarie Reed, vice president of sales and marketing for Dream Vacations. “We are committed to creating marketing promotions for our franchisees that not only entice their prospective consumers to purchase a dream vacation now, but which also encourage them to join the franchisee’s mailing list so they can learn about future promotions and book when they are ready.”
For the second quarter online contest, the travel agency franchise is giving away a seven-night cruise for two with Azamara Club Cruises. Earlier this year, the marketing team fully funded “It’s Snow Secret,” a campaign that led to record-breaking sales in January.
Existing travel agents and those who are passionate about travel, helping others and are eager to go into business for themselves, but not by themselves are ideal candidates to become travel franchise owners.
