Mango. Hotels to open 55 -keys property in Hubballi in July

Consolidates position in Karnataka with fifth hotel


Saturday, June 20, 2015, 10:00 Hrs [IST]
By HBI Staff | Mumbai

Quote:
Intellistay Hotels Pvt. Ltd. that owns the Mango.Hotels brand of boutique independent hotels will launch its newest hotel in Hubballi. This will be the fifth hotel for Mango.Hotels in Karnataka, according to a release.The Group already has three operational properties in Bengaluru, one in Mysuru and Mango.Hotels in Mangalore under development.The 55 keys property is located in a prime location along the Hubli-Dharwad corridor in Vidyanagar, opposite KLE Society’s College of Education. It will come fully equipped with a 24 hour restaurant, a bar, fast & free Wi-Fi, a Gym, meeting and conference rooms and banqueting facilities.

Prashanth Aroor – CEO (Intellistay Hotels Pvt. Ltd.) said, “Hubballi despite being the second largest urban agglomeration in Karnataka lacks a branded hotel in the mid-scale segment. We are positive that Mango.Hotels will fill this vacuum. Hubballi and its twin city Dharwad are experiencing rapid economic growth. Hubballi-Dharwad,are not only the cultural and educational capital of North Karnataka but have emerged as an important hub for manufacturing with clusters of small, medium and large scale industries. At the same time, it is an excellent base for tourists visiting Hampi, Aihole, Badami, Pattadakal and Dandeli Wild Life Sanctuary. Mango.Hotels-Hubballi will serve as an ideal base camp for business and leisure travellers, alike.”

With the launch of Mango Hotels - Hubballi, the brand will strengthen its portfolio in Karnataka and South India and take its national tally of mid-scale hotels to 14 hotels with another 11 in various stages of development, re-flag and launch in the current FY alone.The company has robust expansion plans and aims to close the financial year with 25 hotels across India.

Aroor explained that having started with eight leased hotels between 2011-13, the next 16, including Hubballi were all management contracts, thereby leveraging the corporate platforms of the brand to the benefit of curated independent hotels in India. New hotels to be launched this year are from an active pipeline of Mangalore,Chennai,Coimbatore and Vizag in the South, Lonavala, Daman, Vadodara, Rajkot, Mundra, Surat, Ahmedabad and Udaipur in the West, Delhi, Manesar, Neemrana and Bhiwadi in the North and Bhubaneswar, Raipur and Kolkata in the East. The company has also entered into five hotel contracts with strategic partners in Orissa and Rajasthan. Mango.Hotels basically follows a Hub-Spoke Model along Airports, Railways and Highways, said Aroor.

Royal Orchid’s Keshav Baljee launches branded hotel aggregator ZiP Rooms; to rebrand Spree Hotels under ZiP

June 19, 2015 | Binu Paul

Quote:
ZiP Rooms, a brainchild of Royal Orchid Hotels co-promoter Keshav Baljee, aims to offer 10,000 rooms in over 100 cities by the current year-end.

The three-month old company seeks to compete with the likes of Oyo Rooms and Zo Rooms for a slice of the growing budget hotels aggregation space, Baljee, managing director of ZiP Rooms told Techcircle.

So how different is Zip Rooms from its more established peers? For starters, it’s the promoter’s hospitality background.

Keshav is the younger son of Chander Kamal Baljee, founder, chairman & managing director of publicly-listed Royal Orchid Hotels Limited. In April 2011, Baljee founded Spree Hotels And Real Estate Pvt Ltd, a separate entity that manages hotels for third parties.

“We come from the hospitality background but the problem in this space is one of technology and hospitality. I am one of the few computer engineers in the industry who has a hospitality pedigree. I have built and scaled my father’s business from four to 28 hotels today,” said Baljee.

With properties in Pune, Goa, New Delhi, Jaipur, Bangalore and Vadodara, Spree intends to fill the gap between a luxury and a budget hotel. In fact, ZiP Rooms is launched under the Spree Hotels umbrella.

“We are lifting our Spree properties under ZiP, all of Spree properties will eventually come under ZiP,” said Baljee.Unlike its peers, ZiP Rooms is offering rooms on all possible online travel agencies. “We want to attract the maximum number of people on to our service until we create the required traction on our own portal. Although we wish to have all our bookings coming directly through ZiP website, this will continue on for the foreseeable future,” said Baljee.

Zip Rooms’ other differentiator is that will not operate as a rooms-only platform but also focus on food and beverages. The company will add food and beverages to its services over the next six months.

ZiP Rooms has already partnered with 20 hotels. It presently offers 1,100 rooms across Bangalore, New Delhi, Goa, Jaipur, Vadodara, Pune and Hubli. The company plans to launch services in two other cities this month and has five more cities planned for the next month.

“We are trying to be the best budget room aggregator because in the budget category, it’s not necessary to be the cheapest but important to be the most reliable,” said Baljee.

The company wants to have ‘at least a few lakh’ regular users on the pan India basis.
“As and when we have hotel supply in a consistent manner across the country, we will start pushing for customer acquisitions and retention. We are focusing on the supply and standardisation right now. Next quarter, we will focus on revenue growth,” he added.

ZiP Room typically takes 15-30 per cent commission fee on each transaction on the portal. The commission percentage varies from hotel to hotel depending on the location. Room tariff ranges from Rs 1000 to Rs 2500.

Baljee is an alumnus of the Wharton School and the Engineering School-Computer Engineering (both under University of Pennsylvania). He also has an MBA from the Indian School of Business, Hyderabad. Previously, Baljee worked as an investment banker with Lehman Brothers and UBS. He left his position at Lehman Brothers to join his father’s business in 2007 and assumed the position of president & co-promoter of Orchid Hotels.

Zip Rooms competes directly with OYORooms.com, the market leader in the online branded marketplace for budget hotels. OYORooms has raised several rounds of VC funds so far with the latest being a Rs 150 crore ($24 million) round from Greenoaks Capital besides three existing investors Lightspeed Venture Partners, Sequoia Capital and DSG Consumer Partners. Stayzilla, an unbranded budget hotel accommodation booking platform, had raised $15 million in Series B in February this year from Nexus Venture Partners and existing investor Matrix Partners India.

Another venture Zostel does the same with branded hostels for backpackers. Its promoters are also behind budget hospitality chain Zo Rooms. Meanwhile, yet-to-launch online venture for branded budget hotel chain Zen Rooms, co-founded by Via.com’s Vinay Gupta, has raised $1 million from former CEO of Kingfisher Airlines Sanjay Aggarwal and Kaneswaran Avili, former chief commercial officer of SpiceJet.

Even with a number of players around, Baljee believe it is still a nascent industry. “I don’t think the budget room aggregation space is a crowded market because there may be more than 2-3 lakhs hotel rooms in the country. Some people say there are almost 10 lakh hotel rooms in the country in the budget room category. A single player will not be able to solve it for a long time,” he said.
The company is currently in negotiations with potential investors to raise funds for building a mobile app and speeding its expansion plans. The mobile app is expected to release in two months.

According to the Federation of Hotel & Restaurant Associations of India’s (FHRAI) Indian Hotel Industry Survey, the industry needs to add 1,20,000 rooms in the budget and mid-market category, entailing an estimated capital investment of Rs 50,000 crore to achieve the 12th Plan target of 1452 million Domestic Tourist Visits (DTVs) by 2017. The growth prospects of India’s budget room segment is further supported by the fact that domestic travelers – the major targets of budget rooms – are expected to contribute around 84.7 per cent to total tourism revenues by 2024.

METRO Cash & Carry mulls pan-India expansion

Bengaluru, July 02, 2015, DHNS:

Targets 50 stores by 2020; opens new Genesis stores

Quote:
German wholesale FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) B2B (business to business) major METRO Cash and Carry, the large sales division of the €63.035-billion German retail giant Metro, has pledged to robustly expand its presence in India to 50 stores by 2020, in an effort to cash in on the growing demand for new products.

The company, which has been in India since 2003, operates 17 stores, and employs 3,500 employees. It is scouting for new markets, looking at cities of over one million population to establish its cash and carry wholesale stores.

METRO Cash and Carry runs three stores in Bengaluru, and will be opening its 18th store here (at ETA Namma Mall, Binnypet) on July 2. The new store will be a smaller Genesis format store, occupying around 60,000 sq feet, and is built at an investment of around Rs 70 crore.
“Bengaluru is an important city for us, and we have invested a lot here in terms of money and people. The city enjoys some of the highest modern trade, at around 40 per cent. Of our proposed 50 stores, Bengaluru will certainly have a sizeable chunk,” METRO Cash and Carry India Managing Director Rajeev Bakshi said.

In terms of expansion, the company is looking at a few large towns, and Bakshi hinted at Mysuru, Hubballi, and Dharwad to become potential markets where stores may come up. And around 300 employees are hired for each store.

Caters to three segments

METRO Cash and Carry’s wholesale model took around six years to fit well in India, with its traditional scheme of procurement. Initially, retail customers had to be identified. Today, the company is one of the few cash and carry wholesale providers in the country, primarily catering to three categories — traders, HORECA (hotel, restaurant and catering companies), and service companies/entrepreneurs.

“We have devised customised wholesale solutions, delivery solutions, a strong farm-to-fork procurement system and sell over 10,000 products (in each store). Over 98 per cent of our products are locally sourced,” Bakshi said.

“It’s important to understand the spurt of the cash and carry phenomenon in India. We had a slow start since customers were yet to get used to this format, and also new categories of products. Today’s customers, however, are goaded by affluence, and demand new things to buy, which becomes imperative for retailers to provide. The growth in living standards has also heralded the requirement of large number of product categories to flood the market, calling for a shift in traditional wholesale distribution channels. We cater to customers who seek new things at affordable prices,” he added.

The company operates two store formats: Genesis stores at 60,000 sq feet, and larger stores at 100,000 sq feet. Only six of the latter format stores exist in India. Around Rs 60 crore -Rs 70 crore, and Rs 100 crore is invested in the stores respectively, depending on the format, and future stores will comprise specific formats depending on the market sizes.
