Grand Welcome Franchise

Grand Welcome Lake of the Ozarks is owned and operated by IFPG Consultant Candidates, a husband and wife duo. Grand Welcome is putting down more roots in Missouri with the new addition in the Lake of the Ozarks!

Originally from Southeast Missouri, the husband brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the team with ten years of business management experience from a Fortune 200 company. Born and raised in Colombia, Missouri, the wife has a deep-rooted connection to the area, having spent her entire life enjoying the lake with her family. They love traveling and exploring new locations, making this the perfect industry for them. Together, they bring a shared passion for the lake and a wealth of experience in real estate and rental properties. Grand Welcome Lake of the Ozarks is looking forward to providing outstanding value and service to local homeowners.

Grand Welcome is a leading short-term vacation rental franchise offering full-service property management to property owners and great lodging options for traveling guests in destinations across the US.

Founded in 2009, the company offers full training and ongoing support and provides systems and marketing to streamline operations. Grand Welcome is part of a rapidly expanding industry - short-term rentals are replacing hotels for travelers post-COVID and are already seeing record bookings compared to levels in 2019. In fact, short-term rentals represent the fastest-growing segment of the $200 billion travel industry. This is a low-investment, high-ROI business model with strong unit performance that was built for scale.
