During the hot summer months, many people flock to the beach to cool off or pack the car for a road trip since the kids are out of school. Wherever the destination may be, people are on the move during the summer. According to the HomeAway Vacation Rental Marketplace Report (conducted April 7 to 10, 2011), 81 percent of respondents said they planned to take a summer vacation in 2011. For an UnFranchise® Owner, this statistic is good news! With more than 80 percent of Americans on the move, this is a great opportunity for you to meet new people and network to grow your business.

In-flight reading material

These are great tools to spark up a conversation on a plane, train or bus. These items are easy to pack, fun to read and allow someone new to the business to quickly understand what the UnFranchise® System is all about.
