Ending the Progression of Poverty

(05/11/2016) Our very own Azim Saju, Vice President and General Counsel for HDG Hotels was featured in an article for Home Business Magazine. He had the opportunity to share his thoughts on how we can change the cycle of poverty and how the franchise business model changed his family’s life for the good. Azim believes that the franchise business model is a way of living to your fullest potential. As you read in the article, it holds true that because of the Saju's perseverance, risk taking, hard work, and life lessons, Azim and his brother Navroz Saju, President and CEO of HDG Hotels would not be the leaders and business owners they are today. In the article Azim explains that it is the job of both the employers and the government to reduce poverty; however, there needs to be a balance of the two. If the employee has the opportunity to advance, the assistance programs must be willing to encourage the advancement instead of feeding contentment. Azim is always proactive in finding new solutions to end the battle of poverty.   If you would like to read the article or his full statement, CLICK HERE! 

Comfort Suites Soft Opening

(01/14/2016) January 12th 2016 was a day of celebration for HDG Hotels. We held our soft opening for our brand new Comfort Suites in Dunnellon, Florida.We were able to give tours of our beautiful location that is coming together perfectly. Our Comfort Suites is a 71 unit eco-friendly, all suites hotel. Why build a hotel in Dunnellon, Florida? Well, we have seen the charm it holds. We believe in helping other small businesses grow and what better way than to add a fantastic place for our travelers to rest their head at night? This hotel will create 91 jobs for those in the area. It will also increase the regional output by $11,400, and increase the earnings by an estimated $3,340,000. At the soft opening we had the privilege to have Mr. Steve Joyce, President and CEO of Choice Hotels not only attend but share his thoughts about our company and where we are going in the future. HDG also had the honor to have Mayor Whitt share his excitement about the opportunity that our Comfort Suites will bring to the community.   Come mid-February 2016 Dunnellon will be hopping with new and returning tourists! Click HERE to see more photos of our soft opening.

HDG RETREAT

(12/15/2015) ​December 12th 2015 marks the first ever HDG retreat. This was a chance for all eleven hotels to join together for some friendly competition. We met midday to see who was going to walk away champion of HDG Hotels. Each hotel had to endure four different relay races. The races consisted of Hoola Hoop Worm Relay, Pipe Line Relay, Frisbee Relay, and Water Balloon Toss Relay. The winner of each race then battled in the finals to see who would triumph over all. Holiday Inn Express in Inverness took home the 1st place ribbon and trophy with enthusiasm and excitement. They walked in confident, and committed, and left a champion. Once we discovered the winner, we decided to have one more challenge before dinner. We played Tug O War. This event was competitive and fun. There were hotels teaming up to battle others out of pure joy, laughter, and the desire to win just one more time. After all the festivities were done, there was an opportunity to join together as a family to end the night out eating some delicious food. There were hundreds of hot dogs, burgers, chicken breasts, as well as baked beans and cookies for dessert. As music, talking, and laughter filled the air, it was clear that this was not just one hotel talking to only those they knew, but a company full of different branches uniting for the same cause. Even though there was only one 1st place winner, we tend to think that each hotel walked away a titleholder. Whether the team was from a Holiday Inn Express, a Comfort Inn, a Quality Inn, a Sleep Inn, Hampton Inn, or Howard Johnson they have the opportunity to stand boldly and partake in the privilege of being a part of HDG Hotels. We look forward with anticipation for next year’s retreat!
