Entrepreneur Magazine Names Dream Vacations Top Travel Agency Franchise for Veterans Fourth Year in a Row
Home-based travel agency franchise ranks #2 out of 150 franchises in 2020
October 27, 2020 // Franchising.com // Fort Lauderdale, Fla. - Dream Vacations has once again dominated Entrepreneur magazine’s annual “Top Franchises for Veterans” list and is the top travel agency franchise on the list – ranked number two out of 150 franchises across all industries. Since 2017, Dream Vacations has been jockeying between the first and second place ranking.
As part of its annual Franchise 500 research, Entrepreneur magazine surveyed more than 500 franchises across all industries and asked questions specific to their programs for veterans. The ranking considers each company's veteran incentive, how veteran franchisees are attracted to and supported by the company, and how each company scored in the 2020 Franchise 500.
“Veterans are such important members of our society and to be recognized year-after-year as the best travel agency franchise for veterans is one of the highest and most meaningful honors we receive,” said Debbie Fiorino, chief operating officer of Dream Vacations. “Our support goes beyond just offering a discount, but providing proven systems, tools and a camaraderie that parallels the military and positions veterans for success.”
The only travel franchise to receive a 5 STAR ranking from VetFran, Dream Vacations proudly supports military veterans and is consistently recognized by industry publications as a veteran-friendly franchise. All military veterans and Gold Star families receive a 30 percent discount off the initial franchise fee, as well as an enlistment package valued at no less than $5,000 and ongoing support. They can select one of two perks currently being offered - waived administrative fees valued at $1,350 or a Microsoft® Surface Pro tablet valued at $1,000. In addition to having access to the Command Center, an internal portal with veteran-specific training and veteran-themed marketing assets, all veterans and Gold Star families receive a waived training fee for a business partner and the ability to hire active-duty military spouses and veterans as associates at a discount. Additional veteran incentives include the ability to move residences and stay in business, travel discounts for military customers and access to veteran networking groups.
In addition to its accolades from Entrepreneur, Dream Vacations has been ranked by Forbes, Military Times, USA Today, Franchise Business Review, U.S. Veterans Magazine and G.I. Jobs as a top franchise for veterans.
