The team behind peanut

a little bit about us and our mission

our mission

Peanut was founded by travel enthusiasts to help people like ourselves choose better flights and hotels and be more prepared for the unexpected, like COVID. Three friends started Peanut during the pandemic on nights and weekends. Brady is our chief nut. Alex leads Peanut design and is based temporarily in LA. Roy makes Peanut possible and is in Seattle. We're growing the team to help every traveler uncover insights to uplevel their booking game.
