Recently on The Engine we had Chuck Elias from Pioneer Valley Cruise Planners. Don’t let the name fool you, Chuck does a lot more than plan cruises. He’s got vacationing in his blood and helps people build memorable getaway packages. Sure, you can book everything online nowadays, but Chuck knows the nitty-gritty of planning a fabulous vacation. Not only does he share insights into arranging the perfect family break, Chuck also discusses his experience as a franchise owner. What I loved about this interview was his approach to choosing the best franchise option for his goals. Spoiler alert – he did his research. If you’re looking for a summer getaway, or want to learn more about franchise opportunities, you won’t want to miss this interview.
