“I left my job in Germany and started a new story at home”

Ana Franic, Director of the Direct Booker Franchise for the Makarska Riviera 

I first found out about Direct Booker by complete chance, my father sent me a link to an article outlining the company’s success and business model. At the time, I was living and working in Germany at a reputable hotel, in the human resources department. As I was running a family-owned apartment rental business for multiple years, I began to research into Direct Booker and stumbled across the franchise opportunities that they had to offer. This was the stepping stone to a new journey in my life and I headed over to Croatia to meet the founders.

The founders and colleagues at Direct Booker instilled in me the confidence and motivation I needed to take this leap into a new chapter of life. With that being said, I quit my job in Germany and moved to Croatia. Currently, I live with guests/renters and I have never been happier since I am pursuing something I love. Direct Booker staff provides tremendous support and the guidance needed when just starting out, thank you Direct Booker. 

We are constantly growing and expanding which ultimately, results in satisfaction and motivation to continue going. Having satisfied renters is extremely important to us, because without them, we would be nothing! Working with Direct Booker has taught me to dedicate yourself to the work and never give up. 

Last but not least, I would recommend a franchise to anyone that is currently thinking about starting from scratch. You are given a strong foundation and a brand name recognized across Europe to start with, making the beginning much easier. I recommend this concept of business to all aspiring young people who see themselves as someone who could successfully promote and develop the Direct Booker brand in their region.
