Quest Serviced Apartments opened its 150th property in Brisbane’s Breakfast Creek earlier this week, a significant milestone in the expansion of the network, which now sees it widely recognised as the market leader in Australia.
Quest Serviced Apartments Chairman Paul Constantinou said the opening of Quest Breakfast Creek is a major achievement in the company’s aggressive growth strategy.
“Our expansion plans are ambitious, this will be our 150th property, one of 11 we are opening this financial year across Australasia,” he said. “Breakfast Creek is a thriving hub, on the verge of the ever expanding city fringe and the growing industrial centre that skirts Brisbane Airport.
Quest Breakfast Creek Franchisee Jenny O’Reilly said the property, next to the famed Breakfast Creek Hotel, is perfectly located to cater to the immense growth in local business demand.
“The inner north is the hotspot for Brisbane’s development,” she said. “We are seeing growth in the airport’s business park, and the CBD is spreading north. We know there is a shortage of quality accommodation in the area.
“At only 5 kilometres from the CBD and 12 kilometres from the airport, Quest Breakfast Creek is ideally located to suit the needs of the growing business traveller market for both extended and short stays.”
The fully equipped apartments have kitchen and laundry facilities, WiFi, multi-unit desk chargers, and traditional Quest services such as local restaurant chargeback, pantry shopping, dry cleaning and babysitting booking. The property also offers conference facilities, car-parking, swimming pool and gymnasium.
So far this financial year, Quest has opened properties in Bundoora, Whyalla and Sydney Olympic Park in Australia and Rotorua Central and Tauranga in New Zealand.
For the remainder of the 2012/13 financial year, the company will open properties in Adelaide, Frankston, Rockhampton and Wodonga in Australia and in Highbrook in New Zealand.
