Fed up of commuting? Want to be your own boss, work your own hours and spend more time with your family?
Ben, 36, had a job which required him to travel all over the UK five days a week. He also wanted to start a family with his husband, Chris, so he began looking for franchises which appealed to him.
The Travel Franchise (TTF) was an obvious choice because Ben, 36, had never worked in travel before. As the number one travel franchise for those new to travel he knew TTF would give him the training and support he needed to kickstart his business but at the same time be his own boss.
“I wanted control of my own business, my own life, my own decisions, and I didn’t want to answer to anybody else,” says Ben.
As you don’t have to work full time when you invest with The Travel Franchise, Ben continued to work as regional marketing manager for McCarthy Stone, a retirement home developer, until his travel business took off.
He didn’t have to wait long.
In his first week of his business Ben had 10 potential clients, one of which resulted in an £8k booking to the Maldives. Ben soon decided to give up his full-time job and concentrate on growing his business and achieving The Travel Franchise’s unique Money-Back Challenge where investors can get their franchise fee refunded if they sell enough holidays in the first 12 months.
Despite losing over £250,000-worth of holiday bookings in 2020 due to the pandemic, Ben succeeded and got his business for free.
“The chance to build my very own travel business for free won me over from the start. No other franchise offered it and I could see lots of other agents had won it.
“I sold £329k-worth of holidays in January without any former experience in travel” says commuter weary 36-year-old Ben who quit his job to work from home and start a family
“You can work full time and aim to sell millions of pounds worth of holidays or you can use it to enjoy a bit of travel and earn a bit of pocket money.”
