A curiosity:

Michelin guide born in 1900 and the founder was André Michelin,

the co-founder of Compagnie Générale des Établissements Michelin, an industrial company specialized in tire manufacturer.

André Michelin adopted a Marketing strategy named lateral Marketing

This strategy as the objective to use a different product to increase sales of the main product.

After that, he create the Michelin guide to increase the tourism knowing that consequently the automotive market would increase.

The idea was so good that the company increase the sales and the brand become converted in synonyms of tourism and high cuisine.
