USA, Orlando, Florida. May 04, 2020

CIG Capital (CIG CAP), an alternative investment firm, continues funding for the hospitality industry during the coronavirus pandemic and announces a new 95 million dollar lending project for a new Sheraton hotel by the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta, Georgia.

"We are providing 100% funding for companies in various industries that are being economically impacted from the coronavirus including hospitality, medical, recreation, aviation and more," says Charles D. Carey, Managing Partner of CIG Capital. "Since projects in the hospitality industry often take years to complete, we are eager to continue supporting this key industry sector amidst and anticipate a promising future as the economy returns to normalcy."

Beside the world's busiest airport will be the full-service Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center by Marriott, completely funded by CIG Capital. The hotel will serve as the flagship for over 500 Sheraton properties around the world. The new Sheraton by Marriott will consist of a 300 key hotel tower featuring a 40,000 square feet conference center, a boardroom and a 200 seat upscale restaurant.

"We are excited to have closed on our loan with CIG Capital. The process was good in that we provided all of our development details and required information to their underwriting team," says Vilas Patel of Choice Gateway, LLC, the developer for the Sheraton project. "The turnaround was reasonable in time and it has been a pleasure to work with CIG Capital."

CIG Capital's 100% funding approach simplifies the process with less approval restrictions and contracts, allowing for projects to get started in an efficient manner. This means that companies can direct their focus towards the project itself and work on their business models and development to bring finalized ideas to the market.

Food & Beverage: New Technological Innovations

In the past few years, hotel food and beverage departments have experienced significant growth. Managers are realizing just how much revenue potential this sector holds, both in terms of additional revenue and as a means to enhance the guest experience. As a result, substantial investments are being made in F&B operations as a way to satisfy hotel guests but also to keep pace with the competition. Though it has been a trend for many years, the Farm-to-Table movement shows no signs of abating. Hotel chains are abandoning corporate restaurants and are instead partnering with local chefs to create locally-influenced dining options. Local, farm-sourced ingredients paired with specialty beverages or local wine also satisfies the increasing demand from Millennial travelers who are eager to travel sustainably and contribute to a positive impact. A farm-to-table F&B program also helps to support the local economy, which builds community goodwill. Also popular are "Self-Serv" and "Grab & Go" options. These concepts stem from an awareness that a guest's time is limited and if a hotel can supply them with fast, fresh, food and beverage choices, then so much the better for them. Plus, by placing these specialty kiosks in areas that might be traditionally under-utilized (the lobby, for instance), they can become popular destination locations. Of course, there are new technological innovations as well. In-room, on-screen menus allow guests to order from any restaurant on the property, and some hotels are partnering with delivery companies that make it possible for guests to order food from any restaurant in the area. Also, many hotels are implementing in-room, voice-activated devices, so ordering food via an AI-powered assistant will soon become mainstream as well. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these developments and document what some leading hotels are doing to expand this area of their business.
