Location, Location, Location…and Product

You have to have a great product

17 years ago Brandy was pregnant with her first child and hatching a little idea with big possibilities. Just one month after her lay-off in the wake of 9/11 a little card business called Mealtickets & Unusual Ideas was born.

She hit the ground running that first summer with just 6 advertisers and 30 displays at hotel front desks. Then came a website and an app, a name change, a merger and a partner. Mo’ people, mo’ possibilities. Today Traverse Traveler has grown to include an in-room visitor channel, dining guide menu magazine and lobby digital signage.

It’s our job to get your message in front of travelers. And we’re good at our job. We’ve spent a lot of time figuring out the best locations and products to serve you.

Traverse Traveler currently reaches visitors throughout the greater Traverse City region including Benzie, Leelanau and parts of Antrim County. Here’s a quick glance at our reach.
