2017 Raise The Bar Cruise
Our 2017 Raise the Bar Cruise was a huge success!
We treated our top-performing franchisees and brand central team members to our 5th annual company cruise. There were over 30 members of the College Hunks family that set sail out of Miami this past weekend. All of the locations that attended won at least one award at our Annual Reunion. Some of the awards were for members in the Million Dollar Club (a location with revenue over $1 million in 2016), the location with the top per-zone revenue, and for franchises that live our core values. Some of the locations in attendance were West Palm Beach, Norcross, Huntsville, Tampa, Washington DC, Falls Church, BucksMont, Lexington, and Raleigh.
We all boarded the Norwegian Sky on Friday (decked out in orange and green of course) and spent the day relaxing by the pool and exploring the boat. There was also a private sunset happy hour to kick off the weekend and get to know some of our team members.
On Saturday we docked in Nassau, Bahamas. We all went off in groups to explore the island. We meandered through the shops, rented dune buggies, lounged on the beach, and danced at the local bars. Back on the boat, there was Norwegian’s “White Hot Party” on the pool deck. We were encouraged to wear white and danced under the stars.
Sunday was spent on Norwegian’s private island: Great Stirrup Cay. The crystal clear water was perfect for snorkeling, floating around, swimming, and just cooling off. There was also a buffet and open bar for us to enjoy.
Overall, we all had a blast at the 5th Annual Raise the Bar Cruise. Congratulations to the franchisees that were able to attend due to their hard work and commitment to the brand! We hope to see you, again, next year! This was a great experience to live our core values, in particular, Creating a Fun, Enthusiastic, Team Environment, as a culture that works hard, plays hard and rewards success.
