The History of Bursch Travel
Bursch Travel was “born” in a restaurant in Alexandria called the Bus Depot Café in 1956. In those days, 30-40 buses a day traveled through Alexandria going to Minneapolis, Fargo, Chicago, Seattle, and all points in between.
M.W. “Pete” and Audrey Bursch purchased the Bus Depot Café and began serving meals and selling bus tickets. Occasionally a traveler would ask about making airline reservations and would rely on ”Pete’s” travel advice, gleaned from his years as a business traveler. Eventually, Bursch Travel became an appointed travel agency helping travelers with tours and cruises throughout the world.
Pete and Audrey loved showing the world to travelers. Group tours to Hawaii, Europe and Scandinavia became the staple product that helped Bursch Travel out-grow the restaurant business. Many people still remember traveling with Pete and Audrey to the Holy Land, Africa, and Australia or around the world.
Our branch office in St. Cloud opened in 1960 and has become the company’s largest location. Fred Bursch joined the company in 1977 when it had 2 locations and has led it to its current size as the largest Upper Midwest travel company with 18 locations in five states. We are part of Signature Travel Network which allows us to provide exclusive offers, added value and added hotel amenities to make our client’s vacations memorable and special.
Though Pete and Audrey are both gone now, Audrey in 1999 and Pete in 2000, their memories are relived every day by members of our staff. The dream of traveling the world is still as exciting as ever and we are happy to still be in the business of fulfilling these dreams.
