BIZ PROFILE: A Michigan limousine company added larger limousines and more “plus-size” vehicles to meet the demand of clients who wanted to party AND save money.

LENOX, Mich. — People still want to party when the economy turns south; they just want to do it in a more wallet-friendly way.

SATISFACTION LIMOUSINE SERVICE learned this in recent years when its business started declining. So the company invested in expanding its fleet, adding more party buses, charters and plus-size vehicles that can carry as many as 54 people.

This way, groups that travel together can share expenses and travel in style, said Robert S. Hamilton Jr., office and marketing manager for the company his family started in 1984, the year he was born.
