In the News: Expedia® CruiseShipCenters® Rides Growth Wave in 2019

Cruise Industry Leader Celebrates 2018 Milestones; Looks to Build on Innovation and Growth in 2019

The article was published in March 2019 in FranchiseHarbor.

BELLEVUE, Wash., March 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The top cruise travel agency franchise in North America, Expedia CruiseShipCenters, announced a milestone-heavy year for the growing brand. In 2018, the brick and mortar travel agency awarded its 100th franchise in the U.S., signed its first multi-unit deal, and exhibited 17 percent year-over-year growth. Riding this wave of momentum in 2019, the company expects another high performing year with 35 new franchise locations projected to open.

Adding to the several notable growth achievements over the past year, Expedia CruiseShipCenters awarded 26 new franchises and achieved over $790 million in gross bookings in 2018. The brand also received industry recognition, winning Carnival Cruise Line’s Retail Partner of the Year Award, Holland America Line’s Franchise Agency Network Award, and Norwegian Cruise Line’s Canadian Retail Partner of the Year, among several others. Most notable, Expedia CruiseShipCenters was ranked on Entrepreneur Magazine’s annual Franchise 500 ranking. The prestigious ranking is a testament to the brand’s ability to grow its footprint across North America while continuing to provide unparalleled franchisee support and customer service.

“2018 was a strong year for the brand, as we achieved some new milestones, won a series of supplier awards, and continued to build on the success from last year,” said Matthew Eichhorst, President of Expedia CruiseShipCenters. “We hope to keep this momentum going in 2019, and with our continued focus on agent recruitment and retention, and our plan to incorporate technology and data to drive our consumer outreach, I believe this will be another incredible year for us.”

In 2019, Expedia CruiseShipCenters has eyes set on key markets throughout the U.S. for development including Florida, Texas and California, Georgia, Illinois, and Washington.

With the cruise travel industry expected to continue its rise throughout 2019, Expedia CruiseShipCenters’ growth is in part driven by this continued demand. According to the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) report, more than 30M passengers are expected to cruise in 2019 – a 34percent increase from five years prior. Additionally, 24 new ocean, river and specialty ships are scheduled to debut this year, with more than 125 new ships coming online between now and 2027.

In the News: Expedia® CruiseShipCenters® Inks First-Ever Multi-Unit Franchise Agreement

The article was published in February 2019 in PRNewswire.

ATLANTA, Feb. 19, 2019/PRNewswire The top cruise travel agency franchise in North America, Expedia CruiseShipCenters, has just announced the signing of its first multi-unit franchise agreement. The multi-unit agreement will bring three new locations to Georgia over the next several years. Folded into an overall growth vision for the brand, the new multi-unit franchise opportunity provides motivated entrepreneurs an opportunity for aggressive business expansion. As Expedia CruiseShipCenters continues to expand its presence in North America, the company is on track to reach its goal of opening 500 North American locations in both Canada and the United States over the next five years.

The Georgia multi-unit agreement is spearheaded by husband and wife team, Wil and Ayten Mauk. The long-time residents of Atlanta will debut three new locations throughout the state by 2023. The first location is currently in development in the Dunwoody area and is slated to open April 2019. The new locations will join five existing Expedia CruiseShipCenters locations throughout Georgia in Alpharetta, Lakeland, Lawrenceville, Roswell and Sugar Hill.

“We could not be more excited to open our new locations throughout our home state. We wanted a career that combined our love for travel with the challenge of taking on an entrepreneurial role,” said Ayten. “With a well-known brand like Expedia Group, paired with the value of having a storefront to interact with our customers, we feel well-positioned to help our community plan their perfect vacation.”

Expedia CruiseShipCenters opened 22 new franchise locations and welcomed over 2,000 new Vacation Consultants in 2018. Riding this wave of success, Expedia CruiseShipCenters plans to open even more locations this year with a particular focus on the southeast.

“It is an exciting time to join the Expedia CruiseShipCenters family. After more than 30 years, our proven system has evolved to suit franchise partners interested in building an empire with our multi-unit franchise opportunity. As the cruise industry continues to surge, our Centers are able to meet the demand in the market,” said Matthew Eichhorst, President of Expedia CruiseShipCenters. “We are continuing our expansion into more communities across the country, and we are seeking both single and multi-unit owners like the Mauk’s who want to pursue entrepreneurship in a retail business that they are passionate about.”

With the cruise travel industry expected to continue its rise throughout 2019, Expedia CruiseShipCenters’ growth is in part driven by this continued demand. According to the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) report, more than 30M passengers are expected to cruise in 2019- a 34% increase from five years prior. Additionally, 24 new ocean, river and specialty ships are scheduled to debut this year, with more than 125 new ships coming online between now and 2027.

Are You Looking for a Recession-Resistant Franchise?

4 Compelling Reasons to Consider Expedia CruiseShipCenters

As you research franchise opportunities, it’s important to consider the stability of each model and how your business will fare in the event of a downturn in the economy. While many things are in your control as the owner of your own business, the economy can have a big impact on both employees and business owners alike. Finding a recession-resistant franchise can help to minimize any negative impacts your business may experience during these times.

During tough economic conditions, some brands weather the storm better than others and throughout our 32-year history, Expedia CruiseShipCenters has persevered through more than one storm. With an exceptional product, a minimal expense business model, and a proven system for helping franchisees be successful, our company has not only survived recessionary periods since we began in 1987, but we have also taken market share and come out ahead of our competition.

Here are 4 ways Expedia CruiseShipCenters offers a recession-resistant franchise:

1. No inventory required

When you invest in many franchise businesses, a large upfront cost is often required for inventory — whether that be stock to fill your shelves, or food to have on hand to feed potential customers. Purchasing inventory is a fixed cost and a necessary risk incurred by many franchise owners, but not at Expedia CruiseShipCenters. Since travel is an experiential product which is supplied by external tour operators, there are no shelves to stock or physical products for our owners to purchase upfront. Through the power of technology, you can offer your customers thousands and thousands of different products to suit any travel budget and taste, without spending a cent on inventory. Plus, with the latest cruise line availability feeds updating automatically in your CruiseDesk system daily, your inventory will never go out of style, or be past its best-before date. The travel products you offer will always be fresh.

2. Cruising is always a great value vacation

While it’s true that consumers may cut back on frivolous expenses during a recession, real travellers – the kind who book with Expedia CruiseShipCenters year after year – will always make travel a priority. For someone who looks forward to their annual family cruise each year, travel is not a frivolous expense.

Plus, unlike products that stay at a static price point regardless of demand, cruising offers a vast range of options for any and every budget. If a client can’t afford their usual luxury cruise one year, they may choose to book with a premium line instead, or perhaps they’ll downgrade from a suite to a balcony. They could also choose to depart from a port within driving distance to save on the cost of the flight. With so much flexibility and choice, cruising allows travellers to travel, no matter what the economic conditions are. With industry-leading rates and commissions secured for our 25 partner cruise lines, you’ll be able to accommodate any travel budget through your Expedia CruiseShipCenters franchise.

Need more convincing? If anything shows confidence in the future of the cruise industry, it’s the ongoing investments cruise lines are making in increased capacity. Even from 2007-2009 during the global economic recession, worldwide cruise capacity still increased by a whopping 1.44 Million passengers and continues to rise as billions of dollars are invested in new ships each year.

3. Our sales model is commission-based

With many franchise businesses, like fast-food or specialty retail, employee wages are an ongoing fixed expense of running your business. While you may be able to cut down on the number of staff members you have during difficult economic conditions, you will still require some staff to keep your business open and running smoothly.

At Expedia CruiseShipCenters, all Vacation Consultants are Independent Contractors who are paid on commission only. This means that you will only pay your Consultants when a cruise is sold. Why is this important for a recession-resistant franchise? If employee wages are fixed and your incoming sales decline, this has a negative impact on your bottom line. If on the other hand, your employee wages drop as top line sales fall, your business has a much better chance of pulling through. If a Vacation Consultant doesn’t sell any cruises, they won’t earn any commission. You can bring on as many Consultants as you can support at your local Center and incur little to no risk as the fixed expenses for your business will remain the same. In the event of a downturn in the economy, no layoffs are required.

4. Cruise lines will do what it takes to fill their ships

Two-thirds of all cruise vacations are booked through travel agents according to PhoCusWright, travel agencies are an essential sales channel for cruise lines to leverage when they need help filling their ships. As one of the leading sellers of cruises in North America with a collective database of over two million cruisers, Expedia CruiseShipCenters will be one of the first brands cruise lines will come to with exclusive booking incentives to offer our customers such as onboard cash credits, free upgrades or reduced deposits. These added bonuses allow you to offer more cruising value to your clients, without having to reduce the price of the cruise itself which would eat into your sales, and your commissions.

In addition to these national booking incentives, you’ll also have local cruise line representatives knocking on your door to partner with you directly as an Expedia CruiseShipCenters franchisee. They will offer you additional marketing funds to help put on events at your Center or fund local ad campaigns that promote both your business and their brand. While these “co-op” funds are available to your Center every year, cruise lines tend to make even more of these marketing dollars available during tough economic times. Best of all, this addition your local marketing budget won’t cost your Center a cent so you get to reap the rewards without any added financial risk.

In the News: The 4 Techniques That Helped Me Walk the Fine Line of Work and Single Motherhood

Being disciplined with your time is one of the most important skills a momtrepreneur needs to master

The story appeared in the July 2018 edition of Entrepreneur

There’s no such thing as an easy path to entrepreneurship, and being a single mom makes that journey even more difficult. As a franchise business owner and single mother myself, I speak from experience when I say that maintaining a business while raising the ones I love most can be challenging. Yet, despite the challenges, my role as single momtrepreneur is one I wear with pride. When you’re surrounded by the two things that excite you most — your kids and your business — every day is a learning experience. So, if you too are a single mother looking to pursue your dreams as an entrepreneur, here are a few things I did that helped me get to where I am today.

Be transparent with your priorities

Being disciplined with your time is one of the most important skills a momtrepreneur needs to learn. Establishing a natural rhythm in alternating your attention among your children, clients and workforce will help you find your footing on the journey. Entrepreneurship by no means is a 9-to-5 job, but creating a list of priorities and a road map for your day will help you feel less overwhelmed.

It’s also important to recognize your limits. I used to be an overachiever working eight- to 12-hour days for six days a week, and although my business was growing and we were in one of our busiest seasons, I realized that I wasn’t giving the proper amount of attention to my kids. I needed to make a change.

To adjust, I learned to be transparent with my team about my need (and maybe their need too!) to balance time with my family; and I made sure they understood what times they could and couldn’t reach me.

For example, I encourage my team to text and email me any time the need arises, but unless it’s an emergency I may not be able to reply until regular business hours. While it took some time for the team members to adjust, everyone came to understand that life outside of a business is just as important as life inside.

Be crystal clear with your team and lay out some ground rules on when and how you can be reached outside of the office. At the beginning of every week, I bring my team together to identify goals and discuss how we plan to reach them. Creating this outline will help you manage your workload in the office, while also allowing you to plan your day-to-day obligations as a mom.

Don’t suffer alone

Momtrepreneurs need to understand that there are some instances when things are out of our hands. Trying to be perfect at juggling everything around you is the tempting thing to do, but it takes a certain level of bravery to be vulnerable and to ask for help when help is needed. Whether it’s seeking out assistance from the team you’ve built firsthand or seeking out guidance from your family, understand that it’s the recovery that’s more important than the fall. How you bounce back will shape how you charge ahead further down the road.

One great way to find help is to form a network of mothers in your neighborhood. Early on as a parent, I organized a playgroup of more than 30 families, allowing us to get together on a regular basis to socialize and discuss the challenges we faced. Any kind of network, whether a book club or sports group, is a great way to get people together, so find a way to better connect yourself with those around you.

Use online resources, as well. Whether you turn to a site like Meetup.com, which helps you find others with similar interests and hobbies, or an app like 2Houses, which helps keep track of your children’s schedules, or to a meditation tool like Stop Breathe & Think, find — and use — the tools that can assist with your work and personal life.

Team up with your kids

Children are very inquisitive, and one of the duties of a parent is to foster that curiosity. As a momtrepreneur, I’ve realized that one of the best places to nurture my children is right there in my office. They don’t understand every intricacy of my travel business, but showing them around and even letting them “work” is a great way for me to spend time with my kids while getting things done.

Giving my children assignments in the office is more than simple delegation. My kids sometimes sweep up and keep things tidy, put stamps on envelopes or shred papers that I no longer need. I also take them to community events.

Children can be great ambassadors to a brand. I ask them to help with direct marketing at events and to greet potential customers. And all of these activities allow me to harness my children’s curiosity, giving them a leg up on life while also showing them the working world.

Celebrate every victory

I used to think that my life would be defined by a few key moments, but I’m learning every day that it’s the little moments with both my kids and my team that I cherish.

Yes, birthdays, graduations and record sales deserve their own celebrations, but I have begun to appreciate and prefer the small moments of human connection, too. Reading a book to my kids before they fall asleep or helping a family find a cruise destination that’s perfect for them brings me an immense sense of joy and satisfaction. Moments like these are the ones that make my work as a momtrepreneur meaningful, and keep me motivated to continue on this journey.

Running a business while raising a family is definitely a challenge, but it’s one I look forward to taking every day. I know that every day is an opportunity to become a better person, both as a successful entrepreneur and a loving mother.

In the News: Expedia CruiseShipCenters Announces Expansion Plans for Texas

Leading Travel Franchise Seeks to have 23 Texas Locations Open by 2023

Expedia CruiseShipCenters plans to have 23 Locations open in Texas by 2023

TEXAS – PRNewswire, the top cruise retail travel agency franchise in North America, has announced targeted expansion plans to bring additional travel franchise locations to Texas. Joining four locations already open, and an additional seven under development, the leading travel franchise brand plans to have a total of 23 locations open and operating in Texas over the next three to five years.

Folded into an overall growth vision for the brand, the new Texas development efforts are key to Expedia CruiseShipCenters’ goal to reach its 500-location milestone in North America over the next five years. In addition to the four locations already in operation throughout Texas, Expedia CruiseShipCenters has seven locations currently in development in Dallas, McKinney, Houston, San Antonio and Waco, which are all projected to open over the next three to nine months.

“The strength and rapid growth of our brand is influenced by the increased popularity of the cruise industry which has continued to rise over the last decade,” said Bob Tipple, Senior Director of Franchising. “As the third largest state for cruise embarkations, Texas provides enormous potential for cruise vacation sales and is the perfect market for Expedia CruiseShipsCenters to continue its growth.”

According to Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), over one million cruisers originated from the Lone Star State in 2016 accounting for nearly 10 percent of all North American cruise passengers. As driving distance to port is a key decision-making factor for cruisers, Expedia CruiseShipCenters has identified the state of Texas as a prime market for its retail travel franchise opportunity due to its significant source of cruisers and cruise port in Galveston.

“Texas is the second most populated state in America—and with over 28 million residents residing there, we have room to add over 100 new Centers,” said Tipple. “Our current franchise development plan hones in on the next three years as we look to add 12 more Centers in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area, as well as in several other growth markets.”

Additional target markets for Expedia CruiseShipsCenters’ franchise development in Texas includes the greater Houston area, San Antonio, Austin, El Paso, Corpus Christi, and several markets in between.

Expedia CruiseShipCenters’ growth is in part driven by the continued expansion of the cruising industry. As noted in the recent CLIA report, cruise travel is expected to rise in 2018, boosting the global economy. An estimated 27.2M passengers are expected to cruise (demand has increased 20.5 percent in last five years). Additionally, 27 new ocean, river and specialty ships are scheduled to debut. After years of stagnant performance, the cruise industry is coming back with a vengeance, contributing more than $126B in total output worldwide.

Expedia CruiseShipCenters provides exceptional value and expert advice for travelers booking cruises and vacations through its network of over 250 retail travel agency franchises. As part of the Expedia group family of brands, the company’s more than 5,000 Vacation Consultants sell a wide range of vacation products including cruises, flights, hotels, vacation packages, tours, excursions and more. The company has been navigating spectacular vacation experiences for customers across North America for 30 years.

With plans to open 23 Texas locations in the next 5 years, Expedia CrusieShipCenters continues to provide business opportunities for driven team leaders who want to build income, equity and a great lifestyle with a retail business they are passionate about.
