We have had amazing feedback from our 2018 Annual Conference. Consultants are still buzzing from all of the announcements we made, and cannot wait to take advantage of the new services that will help them promote their business. As well as our much valued internal recognition, we were proud to announce an award to Steve and Paul from the LDC’s top 50 “Ones to Watch” list. This award is a huge milestone for Steve and Paul as it highlights the successes of their business on a national level.
When choosing a franchise, it can be concerning to invest in a business you may not know much about. Franchises offer a unique opportunity in providing a platform to build your own business, however investments like these must be considered carefully to ensure you are making the best use of your funds and can trust in the business you are investing in. This award adds another layer of authenticity to our business as it shows how we are recognised nationally.
We have already won countless awards within our industry. Only a couple of months ago we won “Homeworking Agency of the Year” at the 2018 Travel 2 awards (for the fourth year running!), as well as “Touring agency of the year” and “Avis car hire agency of the year”.
These awards prove our success within the industry, and now we are being recognised not only as a competent travel provider but as an exceptional investment opportunity
What is the LDC?
Established in 1981, the LDC is a leading player in the private equity mid-market. They work with management teams, advisors and partners to create a working relationship that is engaging, enjoyable, ambitious and successful. They aim to create business partnerships based upon mutual respect. So far in 2018 they have won 16 awards! The LDC top 50 is known to be an important list in the investment industry.
Ones to watch
The LDC ones to watch list is compiled of entrepreneurs who are tipped for great things. Each member of this list has not only already succeeded within their field, but is also seen as a name to watch for the future. It is no surprise that the co-founders of Not Just Travel and The Travel Franchise have made this list. They have nurtured the growth of the company from humble beginnings to become a household name within travel and their sights are still set for higher things. Our Brand Ambassador, Daley Thompson (CBE) immediately saw the potential and has been ecstatic to be a brand ambassador ever since he joined us.
“Paul and Steve demonstrate pure entrepreneurial spirit, and their desire to help others launch and nurture their own travel business is evidenced by the scale achieved to date – they have recruited more than 600 franchisees and this is set to hit 1000 by 2020. With a blueprint that works, we have high hopes the business will continue to thrive as it looks to move outside of its core leisure market into corporate travel.” Jonathan Caswell, LDC
