Choice Hotels Signs With Legacy Partners to Develop Five Sleep Inn Hotels Outside of Houston, Texas

USA, Rockville, Maryland. July 11, 2019

Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH) has signed an agreement with Legacy Partners, LLC to develop five Sleep Inn hotels outside of Houston, Texas. The first hotel is slated to open in 2020.

"With more than 550 Sleep Inn properties currently open or in the pipeline worldwide, Sleep Inn continues to be a strong leader in the midscale segment that appeals to business-savvy developers and guests alike," said Brian Quinn, head of development, new construction, Choice Hotels. "The brand's Designed to Dream prototype offers developers the lowest cost-to-build in the midscale segment, while guests love its stylish design and amenities."

All five Houston-area Sleep Inn hotels will have four stories and 60 rooms. The hotels will be built in the following cities:

- Crosby

- Texas Waller

- Texas Liberty

- Texas Dayton

- Texas Humble

- Texas

The locations are within driving distance to several major corporate headquarters in the region's booming energy industry, including ConocoPhillips, Enterprise Products Partners, and Plains All American Pipeline. Once open, the hotels will be a short distance from popular leisure attractions, such as Minute Maid Park, NRG Stadium, and The Galleria shopping mall.

"Houston, an ever-growing city, has thriving industries in healthcare, energy, and manufacturing," said Sazmin Momin, Owner, Legacy Partners LLC. "We knew signing this agreement to develop properties with Choice was a good investment. Sleep Inn's prototype targets both business and leisure travelers that are looking for an inviting, simple but timeless space - the ultimate ‘home away from home'."

"We are fortunate to be given an opportunity to grow and represent Choice Hotels in communities across Houston. These properties, once completed, will be a wonderful addition to our service portfolio as a company," said Afsha Maknojia, Owner, Legacy Partners LLC.

Sleep Inn's Designed to Dream prototype and nature-inspired aesthetic have sparked its rapid expansion across the U.S. and resonated with guests. Choice Hotels also recently unveiled a new Sleep Inn logo with a cursive design and eclipsing moon against its signature purple background. Sleep Inn hotels are planned to open in top markets across the U.S., including in Bronx, N.Y., Oklahoma City, and Spokane, Wash.

Food & Beverage: Millennial Chefs Lead the Way

Led by Millennial chefs, hotels continue to foster sustainability, sourcing and wellness within their dining rooms and banquet spaces, and by all measures, this is responsible for an increase in their revenues. In many hotels, the food & beverage division contributes 50 per cent or more to hotel sales and they are currently experiencing double-digit growth. As a result, hotel owners are allocating an increasing amount of square footage for F&B operations. The biggest area of investment is in catering, which is thriving due to weddings, social events and business conferences. Hotels are also investing in on-site market or convenience stores that offer fresh/refrigerated foods, and buffet concepts also continue to expand. Other popular food trends include a rise of fermented offerings such as kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut, tempeh, kefir and pickles - all to produce the least processed food possible, and to boost probiotics to improve the immune system. Tea is also enjoying something of a renaissance. More people are thinking of tea with the same reverence as coffee due to its many varieties, applications and benefits. Craft tea blending, nitro tea on tap and even tea cocktails are beginning to appear on some hotel menus. Another trend concerns creating a unique, individualized and memorable experience for guests. This could be a small consumable item that is specific to a property or event, such as house-made snack mixes, gourmet popcorn, macaroons, or jars of house-made jams, chutneys, and mustards -all produced and customized in house. One staple that is in decline is the in-room minibar which seems to have fallen out of favor. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will document the trends and challenges in the food and beverage sector, and report on what some leading hotels are doing to enhance this area of their business.
