Gemini Publications was founded in 1979 by John H. Zwarensteyn in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Zwarensteyn had published Grand Rapids Magazine as a staff member of the Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce during the 1970s and purchased the publication when the chamber decided to sell it in 1979.
In 1980 he bought out his partners and formed Gemini Publications. In 1983, Grand Rapids Magazine began to take on more of a consumer focus as Gemini began publishing the Grand Rapids Business Journal—first as a monthly business-to-business newspaper—then in 1986, as a weekly.
Grand Rapids Family magazine was launched in 1989, followed by other successful publications in the years to follow. The Gemini Publications list of titles now includes:
Grand Rapids magazine (monthly)
Grand Rapids Business Journal (weekly)
Grand Rapids Family magazine (monthly)
Michigan Golf (twice annually)
Michigan Blue (six times annually)
Commercial Quarterly (quarterly)
Health Quarterly (quarterly)
Book of Lists (published annually)
The company's offices are located at 549 Ottawa Avenue NW, Grand Rapids, Michigan 49503.
