Announcing Anagram Ventures, New Independent Investment Firm from the Dynamic Minds Behind J Street Hospitality

San Diego Based Firm Brings Creative, Nimble and Proven Approach to Hospitality Investment

USA, San Diego, California. June 22, 2020

The creative and strategic team behind J Street Hospitality, an innovative real estate investment, development, operations and asset management firm specializing in lifestyle-focused hotels, today announced the launch of affiliate firm, Anagram Ventures. The private, independently owned firm, helmed by President Sajan Hansji was created to provide value for stakeholders during this new economic cycle through the acquisition, development and sale of hospitality-related assets.

Inspired by the concept of an anagram, where rearranging the letters of a word yields an entirely new thought, Anagram Ventures aims to identify and act on unique opportunities by exploring creative solutions such as debt restructuring, alternative uses of real estate, brand repositioning or a reduction in operating costs to sustain investment. The firm's principals bring a nuanced understanding of market trends, consumer needs and property valuations to identify and acquire assets that it believes are likely to yield strong returns.

"Our principals offer a streamlined approach that delivers expertise in hotel operations, real estate deal structuring, and capital markets - all under one roof', said Sajan Hansji. "The Partnership's objective is to negotiate and acquire hotels, by targeting the 'all-in' basis, with a special focus on unique factors that may create immediate value and/or long-term risk mitigation. Through our multifaceted experience, we use a relationship-focused, solution-driven, and radically simple approach; allowing us to sustain until the market is right for an exit," he said.

Anagram Ventures' management team brings deep expertise in high barrier-to-entry markets and has successfully invested into and developed hotel projects totaling more than $600 million. The independent firm is entrepreneurial in nature and nimble, allowing Anagram Ventures to move quickly and decisively to develop creative solutions unique to each project. Anagram Ventures also brings to bear strategic and proven partnerships across financing, construction, hotel operations and real estate development, having worked with Marriott International, Bank of America, Swinerton Builders, Delawie Architects, CBRE, and others. Its principals see the coming months and years as a period of great promise for stakeholders.

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.
