The Escorts is an escort service that allows customers to hire an escort for a fee.
The company operates out of an office in the East Lansing, Michigan, suburb of Grand Rapids, Michigan.
It has operated for at least seven years and was one of the most popular escort services in the United States for the past decade.
The escort industry is not as popular in the city of Lansing.
But in the past few years, Lansing has become a destination for those who are looking to make a new start.
The city is one of about 40 that offer escort services, according to the website SeekingArrangement.com, and the number of such companies has increased in recent years.
The Escorts has an office on East Michigan Avenue in Grand Rapids.
The business is run by two former students at Lansing Community College, who are now adults and operate as the Escorts.

The Escort started out as a hobby.
It was an escape from a life of addiction, they said.
“It was like a hobby,” Rachel Pamberton said.
“It wasn’t a lifestyle.
It wasn’t about money.
It just wasn’t.”
When the Escors were a little girl, they would come into the office and have fun.
Now, they have a full-time staff, which includes two students and a waitress.
“They really help people and they really care about people,” Rachel said.
The Pembertons started out working in a massage parlor.
But the Escours grew in size and began offering escorts in bars and restaurants.
They have also expanded to the East and West sides.
Rachel said the Escorns can offer a great service if you know what you’re doing.
The company’s website says the escorts provide a safe environment for people to meet other people.
“You don’t have to feel like you’re on a date with the guy,” Rachel says.
The service is not cheap.
The service is $30 an hour and it costs about $400 per night, but Rachel says that is not a huge amount.
She says she can afford to do so because the Escores offer a lot of benefits.
“We have health insurance.
We have a 401(k), which is a retirement plan for our staff, as well as a health insurance plan for the other people in the service,” Rachel explained.
Rachel and her husband, Michael, are also looking for ways to expand.
“I’m trying to get a second business going.
I think we’re going to get into other areas, like real estate,” Rachel added.
The escorts operate out of the Escorting Agency and the Escouring Service offices.
Rachel said that the company is working with a partner to make it a full fledged business.
The number of Escorts in the area has increased by about 25 percent in the last three years, according the website Escorts By the Numbers.
There are currently more than 1,500 Escorts operating in the Lansing area, according with the website.
The two young men in the video, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that they do not know why they are working for Escorts by the Numbers, and they are not going to go on record to say they are paying the Escorters.
But Rachel says they do know that she and Michael are doing it for a good cause.
“If you are a person who is not willing to accept the reality that this is a dangerous profession that can lead to violence and rape, then you are not qualified to be a licensed escort,” Rachel explains.
The couple’s two young daughters, ages 6 and 2, have been working for the Escornters for a couple of years, Rachel said, adding that the Escorders do not pay them anything.
“Our girls work and live in the community and they come into our office and they’re here and they spend their time with us,” Rachel noted.
“That’s not our business.
Our business is to provide a very safe environment to people who want to get away from their abusive lives and find the love and happiness that comes from having a loving relationship with a woman,” Rachel concluded.
