Charlotte, North Carolina Dream Vacations-Wanderlist Vacations franchisee Jennifer Cron just awarded a $10,000 vacation to contest winner Rachel Gilmore. This prize is a part of a bigger, quarterly countrywide contest that is funded by travel franchise business Dream Vacations. Gilmore, a Charlotte resident, was chosen at random as the winner out of a 17,000-plus contestant pool, and she can choose anywhere in the world to go for her vacation. She is allowed to use the entire sum to fund one trip or she can split it and go on multiple vacations.
According to Cron, she discovered Gilmore won the prize while she was hosting a Business Mind, Body Spirit Networking meeting, which is a group of passionate local entrepreneurs and business owners who come to form relationships, expand their knowledge and grow. This group is also where Cron first met Gilmore, although Cron noted she is happy one of her clients won the grand prize by signing up on her travel franchise business website. Gilmore is a single mother who devotes a lot of time to the networking group and really deserved a dream vacation of her own.
Brand Vice President of Sales and Marketing Rosemarie Reed noted that 2017 is the first year headquarters has fully funded over $1 million in marketing promotions, and this approach has been very successful as the travel franchise is on track to break records this year. According to Reed, the franchise is focused on creating more promotions for brand franchisees that encourage clients to buy a vacation now and sign up for a franchisee's mailing list at the same time. The online contest coming up for the next quarter will feature a seven-night cruise from Azamara Club Cruises for two.
