The Student Friendly Promise:

Student Friendly was founded out of necessity. Until now, the task of finding and qualifying businesses that could accommodate large groups was nearly impossible. It has always been a challenge to find a restaurant that had enough tables or a hotel with large elevators or entertainment service with excellent group rates. Student Group Leaders and operators are only kept from the Student Friendly establishments, because until now - they didn't know where to find them. It became our mission to identify them and set them apart from everyone else in the industry. Student Friendly Businesses are committed and capable of providing for the unique requirements of a large group. Today, when it comes to group planning, is the obvious choice because of the high standards we hold our members to. Clients trust us to find the best Student Friendly service for their large groups. See if you qualify to join the Group Friendly family by applying today!
