The Holiday Franchise Company is proud to announce that they have returned a sum of £10,500 back to one of their franchisees as part of their stance on ethical franchising.
The decision was made when The Holiday Franchise Company launched its new Travel Professional package, a unique franchise opportunity allowing travel professionals with four years or more travel sales experience to build with its own travel brand.
When Ross Griffiths joined, his experience would have qualified him for the Travel Professional package, however, this wasn’t an investment option at the time.
Luke Western, Head of Sales & Marketing, said: “Before we launched the new investment option, we spoke with Ross and explained this to him. Obviously, this was great news for him and allows us to evolve our proposition ethically whilst offering to support the industry, and those professionals are looking to build their own business and take control of their future.
“What’s important is that we can look at each of our franchisees in the eye and know they’ve been treated fairly and ethically.
” We’re proud to be able to back up our ethical claims, especially in the middle of a global Pandemic!”
The unique Travel Professional franchise opportunity allows you to create your own brand in the travel industry, with the backing and support of an award-winning franchise team, accredited by The British Franchise Association & Approved Franchise Association, and powered by multi-award-winning Holidaysplease.co.uk.
The comprehensive training programme which is accredited by The Institute of Travel & Tourism is designed to enhance the experience you already have and develop new skills, to ensure you can market your business successfully to drive sales.
Ross Griffiths, a franchisee of The Holiday Franchise Company, said: “Since joining The Holiday Franchising Company originally on the full Holiday Designer Package, I was happy to say I felt I was getting great value with the initial training, access to resources and support from HQ. Then six weeks after launching to be approached by Luke Western and Joanne Aldridge to explain they are looking to launch a Travel Professional Package and seeing my initial success coming from a travel background, they thought it was only right to offer me the difference of the two packages.
Contractually, I do not feel they had to offer me such a generous or welcome refund, however, due to their ethics and beliefs, they thought it was only right to. All I can say is that it supports my choice in choosing The Holiday Franchise Company as the right franchise option.”
Franchising is one of the safest and most risk-free ways to start up and run a successful business. Buying a franchise that you will enjoy is the most important factor of all. Most businesses, not just franchises, succeed when the owner is passionate about it.
I remember working at Trailfinders on Kensington High Street and the anticipation of January. Peaks. Busy Season. Silly Season – whatever you want to call it.
