WICHITA — The Travel Junkie now has east and west side offices.
Jay and Becca Dill started the company five years ago. In October, they hired Lori Stone as a travel specialist, which helped with their expanding business but caused a very crowded office.
They had space in Office Park Plaza at 4601 E. Douglas near Douglas and Oliver, but there wasn't room to expand there. They're still using the shared office space that Office Park Plaza offers to meet with east-side clients.
"They call it a virtual office space," Stone says.
Now, they also have space in the Re/Max Realty Professionals building at 10100 W. Maple near Maple and Maize Road.
"We just got everything functioning," Stone says of the new space.
"It will allow us to ... visit clients at both locations," Stone says of serving the east and west sides.
The Travel Junkie specializes in destination weddings and honeymoons, but Stone says it's a full-service agency.
"We'll do anything."
About Carrie Rengers
Carrie Rengers joined The Eagle's Business team in 2002 despite her inability to even balance a checkbook. Fortunately for her, and readers, her Have You Heard? blog is about business scoops and contains lots of news but almost no math.
A Michigan native, Carrie’s father was quite tragically transferred to Little Rock, Ark., in the middle of her sophomore year of high school. To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know). She worked for the weekly Arkansas Business and the statewide daily Arkansas Democrat-Gazette before moving to Wichita to be with her favorite writer and cook, husband Joe Stumpe.
