Veterans Can Win a Dream Vacations Franchise As Part Of Annual Contest


Dream Vacations has launched its sixth annual Operation Vetrepreneur contest, where five military veterans can win a free home-based travel agency franchise.

Candidates must complete an online entry form by Friday, Sept. 1, 2017. After conducting an introductory phone interview with a franchise development specialist, candidates will be required to submit a candidate profile, business plan, video and resume. Finalists will be invited to participate in follow-up phone interviews before winners are selected. The entry form and all contest details can be found at www.OperationVetrepreneur.com.
 
Five winners will be notified in September 2017. Each grand prize is valued at $12,700 and includes a complimentary Dream Vacations franchise with a waived $9,800 initial start-up fee and monthly service fees.
 
Since the contest began in 2012, Dream Vacations have given away 25 free travel agencies to deserving veterans worth a total value of $317,500. More than 30% of the company’s franchise owners are military veterans and active-duty spouses.
