Warm Weather Brings Customers To Downtown Traverse City

As the weather gets nicer, business is picking up across northern Michigan.

Pangeas Pizza in downtown Traverse City has seen a significant increase in customers due to the warmer weather.

The restaurant says it’s outdoor patio really helps draw people in on nice days.

“You can tell when the weather gets nice; the people start to come out. The winter was long and cold so people want to be outside. They want to be sitting on the deck; they want to be sitting out anywhere downtown. They like to walk around and see the sites. I’ve definitely seen as the weather gets nicer, people are out and getting excited,” Pangea’s owner Chris Girrbach said.

Most summer tourism related businesses get another bump in traffic after schools let out for the summer.
