Since moving from a 3,200-square-foot space in Cherry Creek to 8,000 square feet near Colorado Boulevard and I-25, Travelers Haven
, a provider of temporary corporate housing, has boomed.
"The office staff has gone from 30-some people to 50-some people," says CEO and Founder Elia Wallen. "We were stacked on top of each other." Wallen says he anticipates hiring at least four to five managers in the near term.
Also part of the new HQ: a real break room with beanbags and a kegerator. "In the last space, the kitchen was the server room," Wallen laughs.
Wallen started Travelers Haven in Florida in 2006 and relocated to Colorado in 2008. The company specializes in handling temporary housing for large companies who are looking to outsource such operations.
Travelers Haven's growth curve has gotten increasingly steep. Wallen says the company is on track to hit $50 million in revenue in 2013, up from $34 million in 2012.
Now the company has expanded its umbrella to include two additional brands in HotelEngine.com
and Atlas Corporate Housing
. Wallen says the former, "an invitation-only hotel-booking engine," is close to launch and has inked partnerships with Priceline.com
. Atlas has been in operation since early 2013 as a traditional corporate housing company targeting individuals.
