Did you know companies with diverse workforces generate 2.5 times more cash flow per employee? According to LinkedIn, these companies are also over 35% more productive and make more effective decisions 87% of the time. 

Dream Vacations is proud to be among the top 100 franchises receiving Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2024 Diversity and Inclusion Awards. Let’s discover how our community is leading the way in promoting a family that welcomes everyone – both at the corporate level and among our franchise owners. 

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Top Franchises 

Entrepreneur’s list of the 2024 Top Franchises for Diversity looks to determine which franchises have the most welcoming atmosphere for business owners of all different backgrounds. 

When reviewing franchises for this award, Entrepreneur considered several factors, including incentives to help franchise owners from underrepresented groups join the system, diversity among franchise owners, the leadership team, and other related programs and initiatives. Dream Vacations was selected for many reasons – but especially because our support staff and franchisees come from many different walks of life, and because our opportunity is ideal for anyone! All you need to bring is a passion for travel and a drive to succeed, we’ll provide the tools, support, and resources to help you thrive! 

A Diverse Group of More Than 2,000 Franchise Owners 

Dream Vacations promotes a unified, caring community by partnering with more than 2,000 franchise owners across 50 states. Our network includes travel professionals from practically every corner of America – both geographically and demographically. Some franchise owners have years of travel industry experience, while others are venturing into the profession for the first time. You may be wondering: “Why buy a franchise business?” Whether you’re looking for practical, professional or personal support, you can always rely on your franchise owner family – and meaningful resources from Dream Vacations as your franchisor. 

One of the Best Franchises for First Time Owners  

Dream Vacations offers comprehensive travel agent training for new franchise owners looking to start their business. This training provides a weeklong, intensive initial education course, followed by access to more than 1,500 online modules covering topics like itinerary building, travel supplier collaboration, soft skills development and technology instruction. First-time franchise owners benefit from the wealth of knowledge and resources accumulated by this established franchisor. 

One of the Best Franchises for Women to Own  

Dream Vacations was named one of Franchise Business Review’s Top Franchises for Women in 2024. Owning a franchise that enables a flexible lifestyle tailored to your needs is perfect for female entrepreneurs. Whether you prefer a full-time income or part-time work for extra spending money, the choice is yours. 

Stay-at-home moms may work from home while their children are at school. Women with backgrounds in hospitality or sales can effectively use that experience as franchise owners. Women with business leadership roles are already primed to run exceptional and prosperous franchises. Additionally, financial options are available for women with specific industry experience to assist with the initial payment. 

One of the Best Franchises for Veteran Business Owners  

Dream Vacations was also named one of U.S. Veterans Magazine‘s Top Veteran-Friendly Companies in 2024. In fact, around one-third of our franchise owners are veterans! Dream Vacations provides a 30% discount on the initial investment for veterans and actively-serving U.S. military service members who want to become franchise owners – as well as for their immediate family. This price break, plus our range of veteran-specific marketing resources and large veteran community can expedite the launch of your business.  

Consistent Award Recognition 

An excellent way to identify top travel business opportunities is to check out franchise awards from independent third parties. Our company takes pride in consistently receiving recognition as one of the leading travel franchises in the industry. 

Besides diversity and inclusion awards, Dream Vacations is Entrepreneur’s #1 ranked travel agency franchise in 2024.
