A Proven Operational Model

If your goal is to enjoy a desired profession while living your life to the fullest, a vacation rental business in your local community can help you attain those goals.

The vacation rental business is one of the fastest growing segments in the hospitality industry. Unlike owning a hotel or B&B, there is relatively little capital investment. In a lot of cases, you can work from your home using vendor services instead of having heavy payroll, employees, paying real estate taxes and sky-high utility bills.

A vacation rental management business allows you to manage others homes, without having to invest and own the property yourself, in order to receive rental revenue income.

Powerful Technology

At Grand Welcome, our proprietary reservation and accounting system helps you open the door to your business on day one. There is no need for you to interview a dozen different companies offering reservation systems, employ a bookkeeper, write contracts, and handle sales, advertising and marketing because we do it all for you. You're staffed for business with a back office administrative support team of highly qualified and trained professionals in reservations, customer service, marketing and accounting.

Training & Ongoing Support

At Grand Welcome, we focus solely on teaching, training and giving you all the necessary tools you need to grow and succeed in the vacation rental business. You are immediately part of a growing family of destinations with brand recognition in some of the most recession-proof vacation destinations in the world.

No experience is necessary as our intensive training program, both at your location and our headquarters, will teach you how to build your product offerings, secure vacation homes in your location, find and retain guests, train housekeepers and build your list of vendor suppliers.


Do I need to rent an office and open a storefront?

No, we do not require that you rent space or open an office. You can work from a home office with a computer, printer and internet access. In some markets, an office makes sense for owner and guest service, so eventually you may want to set up a small office.

How do franchisees make money?

Your income is based on the revenue that your vacation rental properties produce. The more properties you manage the more income you can earn. We make it easy by handling all of the revenue management and collection so that you can focus solely on providing an exceptional guest experience and recruiting new property owners in your territory.

How does Grand Welcome get bookings?

Grand Welcome has a sophisticated real time booking platform that is connected with online travel sites including Airbnb, HomeAway, Orbitz, Booking.com, Travelocity and many more so that your properties are offered and sold on a regular basis. We also provide a robust website and social media campaigns that help maximize the amount of vacation units rented.

What is the timeframe to get my franchise up and running?

Very quickly since this is typically home-based and not brick and mortar to start. The typical length of time between the effective date of the Franchise Agreement and opening your Grand Welcome Franchise will be 30-90 days.
