Travel Franchise franchisee enjoys roaring trade in specific market
Vas Jesani, a franchisee with The Travel Franchise is enjoying a roaring trade in a specific market, selling holidays to her local community and specialising in vegan tourism.
Individuals on a vegan diet can often find planning holidays abroad challenging, especially when it comes to eating out, as not all destinations cater for plant-based diets.
Vas and her husband Hari have found that their travel expertise is highly valued and popular in their local South Asian community. As a result, bookings are soaring.
Vas said: “I loved organising holiday packages for my friends and family and friends and so naturally, I turned it into a business.
Vegan travel is growing ever-popular. Tourist destinations are getting more and more inclusive. Only a few years ago, you would struggle to find vegan food. Let alone vegan, you wouldn’t be able to find restaurants that would cater to your vegetarian food needs. But now, every major city has expanded to include vegan and vegetarian options.
As someone from a vegetarian background who has travelled extensively, I can prevent problems arising for my customers and can provide them with the knowledge and confidence that they are going to have a stress-free holiday. “
The Travel Franchise is supporting the work of industry organisation Encouraging Women Into Franchising (EWIF) by sharing a series of stories from a number of women to show how its possible to build highly successful full- and part-time businesses around other jobs or busy family lives.
EWIF is a not-for-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers, providing advice and guidance to women looking for a route into the franchise industry. Its aim is to encourage women to consider buying a franchise, to encourage businesswomen to franchise their existing operations and to help franchisors attract more women to their networks.
