A small company with a wide network of travel professionals, Joystar, Inc., is a publicly-traded host agency for more than 5,000 home-based travel agents, and it offers stock options to each and every one of them.
Brick-and-mortar travel agencies are becoming fewer and farther between while the number of home-based travel agents in the United States is estimated to be in the range of 20,000. And Joystar, Inc., wants every one of those agents in its network. Joystar Travel Network represents a relatively new model in the travel industry: it is a 'host agency' for home-based travel agents, who can do all of their trip-planning over the phone and Internet.
