Longtime Kingwood Travel owner sells business to Frosch Travel – Houston Chronicle


After 41 years of serving the Kingwood community with world-class travel ventures, Kingwood Travel is now has new ownership and a new location.

Kingwood Travel, which is now owned by Frosch Travel, is now located in the Galleria area at 1 Greenway Plaza Ste. 800, Houston. All Kingwood Travel employees will work from the new location and clients will still receive the same services as before.

Kingwood Travel Owner Sharon Lewis said that after 41 years of serving the Kingwood community with various world adventures, it was a hard decision to sell the business to Frosch as part of a two year buyout program.

Hurricane Harvey created an incentive for Lewis to sell — she sustained flood damage to her home and her business.

One Lewis’s biggest accomplishments for Kingwood Travel was setting up Exxon Mobile’s annual retirement trip. Aside from her professional accomplishments, Lewis is been involved in several charities such as Mothers Against Cancer and organizations such as the Kingwood Rotary Club. She has also donated trips to several local causes.

“I’m still sad about it. I have a lot of close friends here and they’ve supported me all these years, and I appreciate that,” Lewis said. “We’ve (given) a lot of memories to people with nice trips.”

Kingwood Travel’s previous location on Kingwood Drive will be leased out to a new company.

For the next two years Lewis will still be working remotely as an independent travel agent for Frosch before she retires. Lewis can be reached at sharon@kingwoodtravel.net or sharon.lewis@frosch.com.
