It’s been a busy 2021 for Grand Welcome. New franchisees are signing up faster than you can book a last-minute getaway at one of the brand’s beautiful properties.
“We recently closed four deals, have three more sets of contracts out and are about to send another two sets of contracts,” said Kevin Drudge, vice president of franchise development. “We’re slammed on the franchise development side!”
Grand Welcome’s newest franchise owners join an impressive list of motivated entrepreneurs around the U.S.
Adrian Phillips-Samuels launched Grand Welcome Boulder this past fall. After spending most of his career in the FinTech sector at Barclay’s Investment Bank, Phillips-Samuels embarked on a mission to find a scalable franchise opportunity. He discovered that opportunity with Grand Welcome.
Similarly, Jay and Christina Breitlow began searching for entrepreneurial alternatives after running a thriving chiropractic practice for a decade while raising a young family. In July 2020, they transplanted themselves and their three young children to Orlando and started Grand Welcome Greater Orlando shortly after. The whole family is excited to enjoy the sunny attractions that Central Florida offers.
But Grand Welcome is not only crushing it on the franchisee side. “We’re also rocking on the property owner growth side for all our locations and have contracted over 225 new property owners year-to-date,” said Drudge. “That’s a massive feat with a lot of work from a lot of team members!”
Given the company’s attractive model and comprehensive corporate support, and the growth of the vacation property rental segment overall, Grand Welcome’s meteoric ascent comes as no surprise.
