Sandy's Special Connection to Travel Expert from Crowne Plaza in Anaheim

It's not very often one can travel through life with someone that you have proudly watched grow and evolve into adulthood with beauty and grace. That in fact is what has happened to Sandy as she met Donna when she was just 22 years old and Donna was 15.

From a teacher-student relationship to becoming Travel Industry peers, Sandy met Donna when she was one of Sandy's first year Art students in Southern California.

Donna is on the road supporting the message of the Crown Plaza in Anaheim which is central to Disneyland, Universal Studios, Knots Berry Farm and hundreds of other special attractions. Check it out and when you are there, say hello to Donna and ask her to draw you a picture!

Cracker Barrel, A National Jewel in 42 US States

How lucky for Cracker Barrel that their spokesperson, Lamar Hadley is probably the nicest guy in tourism. A discussion with him captures his easy manner and his passion for welcoming groups to Cracker Barrel.

Between 1980 and 1990, eighty-four stores opened across the country. By the end of July 1996, there were 257 Cracker Barrel locations. And today, there are over 600 stores in 42 states, all owned by a company that has no plans for franchising so that they can maintain the consistency that their guests rely upon. The mashed potatoes are scratch-made every day, they also make scratch biscuits which come served with real butter, and the unique items in the gift shop offer genuine value.

Welcome to BusinessTravelRADIO!
We are committed to serious fun on all our programming. The serious part is about calling attention to subjects in our industry that are sometimes not comfortable to talk about.
Our work in Human Trafficking awareness has brought us closer to the International Council of Tourism Partners, Airline Ambassadors, and International Tour Management Institute. We hope you will find the time to become aware of trafficking and how you can stop this horrific crime that is second only to drug trafficking and sales.
