Since 1969, Venture Construction Company has developed a specialty in restaurant and retail construction projects. The general contractor has completed more than 16,000 buildings and remodels of all types across 46 states. Its vast geographic range is coordinated across seven branch offices in the U.S., including ones in Atlanta, Georgia; Tampa, Florida; Nashville, Tennessee; and more.
Rachel Martinez, a project coordinator in Venture’s Tampa office, has been with the company since 2013. Two years into the job, Martinez and her team were frustrated by the expensive lodging for their out-of-state projects. She had to coordinate the regular lodging needs for more than 20 superintendents based in her state. She would try to use hotel chains with group discounts as a way to lower costs for larger projects. But she still wasn’t getting the best rates.
In 2015, she met a representative from Travelers Haven and decided to try out something new.
