Minneapolis-Carlson Travel Network Associates was accepted by the Florida bankruptcy court as the highest and best bidder for the sale of the travel agency franchise ByeByeNow.com.

Almost 250 agencies and $350 million in yearly sales will be added to the 1,100 Carlson travel agency franchises, which include Results Travel and Carlson Wagonlit Travel Associates. -International Franchise Association
