Morgan Group Ventures began Pen & Prose as a single cart in National Airport. Since 1996, operations have flourished in three major airports– National, Dulles and Philadelphia Airports. Pen & Prose has become a widely recognized brand and expanded to Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI), opening Fall/2016.
Morgan Group Ventures built Pen & Prose from the ground up – from design and construction of the initial store, to concept development, product selection, merchandising and staffing. Our commitment to sustained excellence was recognized by the Small Business Administration – following the September 11 tragedy. Pen & Prose was also a presenter for the first small business conference organized under the Department of Transportation. Additionally, Pen & Prose was featured by the Alexandria Small Business Development Center. Highly recognized venues, business developers and airports regularly contact Pen & Prose to discuss openings or joint partnerships in their facilities.
