Traveling for work is being simplified with new start-up, businessandpleasure.com.
The new site is designed to make travel for those on business an easy and pain-free experience and more than just a quick visit. Business and Pleasure is achieving this through simplifying travel to the four key elements of a successful and enjoyable trip: coffee, cocktails, restaurants and places to stay.
The site is developed for a selection of cities — Seattle, Raleigh and Austin, Texas, just to name a few. Despite being launched only four months ago, the site plans to expand its reach to more cities. Businessandpleasure.com has already grown from 100s of views to thousands.
Devin Patel, the founder of businessandpleasure.com, was inspired by his time studying abroad in college to build the site and get involved in millennial business-travel. Patel’s excitement for travel is still a major part of his life, as he travels two weeks of the month to expand the site.
Just as Patel is revolutionizing business travel, he is driven to bring attention and praise to those that are changing their own industry. In addition to the city guides are interviews of local people thriving and challenging the norms of their craft. Katie Button, the chef and owner of Asheville’s Cúrate, is featured in an interview for her innovative take on authentic Spanish cuisine.
