Brand Services & Operator Selection Consulting Services
Hotel brands make up a large part of the market value of many successful hotels and restaurants. Relying on an expert in hotel branding, management contracts and negotiations, can be the difference between constant struggles in owner/operator/investor relationships and successful long-term relationships that build value and guest loyalty.
If developing a new property, wading through the sea of brands and standards required by each is daunting. Engaging an expert is valuable to analyze the market, competition, and opportunities to capitalize on a particular brand (or soft-brand). Understanding the process of design, procurement and delivery logistics can make a considerable difference in project costs and timing to opening.
The brand can define your property’s image and enhance sales, marketing, and loyalty, they bring robust reservations systems and other technology, but implementing brand standards and systems can be costly to establish and maintain. Cayuga Consultants have the knowledge and experience to help you to define your goals, analyze the cost/benefit of each option, help select the right brand for your property and guide you through contract negotiations.
Equally essential is management of the operation. Will you be choosing a brand that requires brand management of the property? Will you be bringing in a 3rd party franchise or management group to operate? Will you be self-operating? Each come with advantages and disadvantages. Cayuga’s experts in hotel management companies and negotiating agreements help owners make this vitally important decision.
