Cruise Planners, a South Florida-based national cruise agency with a franchised network of more than 700 experienced travel professionals, has been ranked as the #1 cruise agency franchise by Entrepreneur Magazine for the fifth consecutive year (2004-2008). The #1 ranking is published in Entrepreneur’s January 2008 issue and online at www.entrepreneur.com as part of the magazine’s annual Franchise 500® list of the world’s top franchises.
‘This is a tremendous honor that further validates our family-friendly business approach and our absolute commitment to helping our agents maximize the potential of their individual franchises,’ said Michelle Fee, CEO of Cruise Planners. ‘Offering a great product got us to #1 back in 2004, but it’s the hard work and commitment to serving our members that keep us at the top.’
In addition to its #1 ranking in the cruise agency category, Cruise Planners also netted top-25 rankings among Franchise 500® ‘home based franchises’ (#24) and ‘low-cost franchises’ (#25).
