The history of Carlson is one of the classic business success stories in America. Starting in 1938 - with merely an idea and $55 of borrowed funds - entrepreneur Curtis L. Carlson founded the Gold Bond Stamp Company in his home city of Minneapolis, Minnesota. His trading-stamp concept, designed to stimulate sales and foster customer loyalty for food stores, proved to be right for the times and swept the nation in a wave of dramatic growth. Diversification into hotels, travel and other service-related industries in the 1960s and 1970s led to the foundation of Carlson.

Today, Carlson is a global leader in the marketing, business and leisure travel, and hospitality industries. The Carlson family of brands and services includes:

In 2006 Carlson was named one of the "Best Places to Work for GLBT Equality" by the Human Right's Campaign.
