Last week, the Independent Travel Group (ITG) added eight italktravel stores around Australia to the growing network, with the addition meaning 12 franchise stores are now operational nationwide.
In NSW, Warners Bay, Belmont and The Junction will welcome italktravel stores as will Perth and Narrogin in Western Australia and Mount Barker in South Australia.
Tom Manwaring, ITG chief executive, said: “We are on track to have 23 stores nation-wide open by the end of September, complementing our 228 current ITG members. All our exclusive franchisee owners are very excited about their customers’ very positive responses to our new brand and the growing excitement of a fresh change.”
The new stores will benefit from participation in an annual bonus plan and as well as receiving ongoing support to bolster their marketing and branding strategies.
