Expedia CruiseShipCenters Targets Six Cities for Expansion
Travel Franchise Aims to Make a Splash with the Addition of 150 U.S. Locations over the Next Three Years. Expedia, one of the biggest cruise sellers in North America, has announced development plans to expand into six strategically targeted cities across the United States. The leading travel company is seeking franchise partners in the metropolitan and surrounding areas of New York, Orlando, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, and Seattle. Within easy driving distance of cruise departure ports, these cities have demographics that provide the ideal foundation for a new travel franchise.
Expedia CruiseShipCenters’ franchise network is rapidly expanding, with over 200 retail locations already open or under development. The growth of Expedia CruiseShipCenters is driven by three overarching realities: the brand’s proven business model is affordable to start and extremely scalable, its focus on cruise vacations makes the company a trusted resource among cruise customers who overwhelmingly prefer to book with a travel agent, and the cruise industry is growing quickly.
