Collette recreates original 1918 tour 100 years later

PAWTUCKET — Collette’s first-ever tour has gotten a reboot 100 years later in celebration of its 100th anniversary.

To commemorate the major milestone, the company is recreating its inaugural tour in 1918, a three-week journey on dirt roads from Boston to Florida with 14 guests at a cost of just $61.50. Now, a whole century later, Collette is once again making that same journey for the exact same price.

The commemorative tour kicked off on Nov. 26 in Pawtucket, Rhode Island and is currently heading down to Miami. Along the way, a team of Collette representatives will make stops in New York, Washington, D.C., Raleigh, Augusta, Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Palm Beach, Jekyll Island, Savannah, Charleston, New Bern, Philadelphia and Providence.

The road trip also will also some goodwill, with the team participating in meal packaging events alongside Rise Against Hunger as a finale to Collette’s One Million Meals initiative. The events will engage hundreds of guests and Collette employees in working together to provide meals to those in need around the world.

“We’re excited to recreate this journey as a special chance for travellers to really experience this tour from 100 years ago, and to give our guests the opportunity to give back to the community throughout the tour,” said Dan Sullivan Jr., CEO of Collette.
