Our Low-Cost Franchise Is Recognized by Franchise Business Review

Posted on: July 3, 2024 at 8:00 AM

At Cruise Planners, we know our low-cost franchise opportunity is one of the very best in the travel industry. We've worked hard over the years to refine a business model that allows our franchisees to stand out in a competitive field while enjoying all the perks of operating a home-based business. Still, it's always nice to receive outside recognition because it reminds the world of just how smart an investment our low-cost franchise opportunities truly are.

That said, we're extremely proud to announce that Cruise Planners has been recognized by Franchise Business Review as a Top 200 Franchise brand for 2024. This publication is an industry-leading one that helps investors learn more about premier franchise opportunities and highlights brands that offer exceptional investments.

Based on Important Feedback

So, what criteria did Franchise Business Review use to select the top 200 brands? Well, the editors surveyed over 35,000 franchise owners across 375 franchise companies and, based on their feedback, compiled a list of the best franchises to buy.  To make the list, brands had to excel in these key areas:


  •     Core values 
  •     Training and support
  •     Executive leadership
  •     Financial opportunity
  •     Franchisee community
  •     Overall satisfaction


The brands ranked highest in these key indicators enjoyed a coveted spot on the Top 200 list. 

We Love Our Franchisees — and They Love Us!

We appreciate the recognition of industry leaders, but it’s especially gratifying when a brand is singled out as an excellent opportunity by the franchisees themselves… 


  •     97% of our franchisees agree that they enjoy operating their business
  •     99% of franchisees are likely to recommend Cruise Planners to others
  •     97% of franchisees believe Cruise Planners acts with a high level of honesty and integrity


Cruise Planners would not be the number one travel franchise in the industry without our franchisees' hard work and support, and we know it!
