Local Resident Starts Travel Franchise


A Knox resident may soon be helping area residents with their travels.

According to a press release, a CruiseOne franchise will soon be operating in Knox. CruiseOne has been in business since 1992 and helps individuals planning their travels, largely by cruise ship.

Area resident Tracy Rust – who will be the owner and operator of the franchise – says it took quite a bit of training to become certified as a travel agent. Often, agents can help travelers with their plans from booking to transportation.

Rust says she traveled to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to receive training in reservation systems, ship inspections, and computer systems.

The new travel agency in town, it appears, will be operated as a home based business for now, but can be contacted over the phone or online.
