Can you imagine checking into a hotel that doesn’t have telephones in their rooms?
Better yet, can you imagine checking into a hotel-in let’s say, Tuscon, Arizona, that doesn’t have air-conditioning units in their rooms?
Before 1952, those things weren’t part of a typical hotel stay. But, in 1952, Kemmons Wilson, changed that. And more.
The Holiday Inn
Wilson, an entrepreneur at heart, declared that his hotels would be;
- Readily accessible to road travelers
Kind of sounds like a franchise. It is. And, The Holiday Inn is celebrating it’s 60-Year Anniversary.
Here’s some lyrics to a song I found that’s bound to help your corporate team get in the celebratory mood…
“Sippin’ some ripple, I got quarters, dimes, and nickels
For shizzle dizzle, I’m on a track with the Big Snoop Dizzle
Let the Henny trickle, down the beat, wit a ghetto tempo
I done blazed the instrumental, laid it plain and simple
Getting brain in the rental, I done did it again
My eyes chinky, I’m wit Chingy, at the Holidae In”
– Chingy, Holiday Inn (Ft Snoop Dogg)

"I was pretty focused on a particular franchise opportunity when I reached out to Joel Libava. In the course of a 1-hour conversation, Joel was able to ask questions and provide direct advice to help clarify the process for me and help guide me through the next steps in my vetting process. He even put me in contact with other professionals who were able to help educate me further in my particular industry. The time and money were well spent."
