Late this year, after traveling and visiting several locations, several followers on our social media started telling us we needed to blog about our adventures so the idea was born and we eventually came up with the name based on the beautiful backroads in the south and delicious burgers we found along the way.
Found Backroads and Burgers and built first website. Our first one was through GatorHost and it was rough to say the least.
We built our second website through Wix and it was much better
Almost disbanded because of COVID-19 and burnout. It was so hard to do what we loved the most during the pandemic. After being left with the business alone, Brandi was not sure she wanted to continue.
After approaching Dori and discussing the issues with Backroads, we decided mutually to rebrand it and focus more on Destination Bloggers and after filing the appropriate paperwork, we were literally off to the races. Dori and I became co-owners and the success since then has been unmatched to the previous years.
The Backroads Team is now averaging 8-10 trips a year, working with CVB’s, Tourism Bureaus, and private businesses, in addition to being full-time public educators.
We launched a new website through WordPress that gives us an opportunity to expand on blogging and other services.
