Carie Skerritt, Franchise Owner since 2014, Hightstown, NJ
My partner and I were looking to get out of our current franchise business and were looking for a new opportunity. There were other travel franchises represented at the International Franchise Expo, however the representatives at CruiseOne stood apart from the others. Their demeanor, their professionalism, and their ability to answer my questions had an impact on my decision process. My feeling was that they were there to sell more than just a franchise ownership. They were showing me a partnership with a parent company. They did not “hound me” after our initial meeting but let me know they were available to answer any questions I may have.
The months that followed that initial meeting far exceeded my expectations. CruiseOne was transparent with their company information. They were available at all hours of the day to answer my questions, including financial information. I had access to numerous franchise owners who shared their CruiseOne experiences with me. Representatives from all areas of the company were also available to me to answer any concerns I may have had about getting into a new business.
In the end, I am thrilled with my purchase. The process to purchase the franchise was simple and painless. CruiseOne is without a doubt – a community/family – that I am proud to be a part of. Their support during the purchase process was phenomenal and their support after is the same. They truly feel that in order for them to succeed, they have to be there to help you succeed. I highly recommend anyone looking to purchase a franchise concept business and/or get involved in the travel business to consider CruiseOne. I have no regrets about my purchase, and I enjoy my career as a Travel Franchise Owner and Vacation Specialist.
