With corporate travel on the rise and the continued demand for leisure stays, it’s an exciting and promising time to work in the hotel industry.
For Quest Apartment Hotels, which has seen significant rises in occupancy levels across its properties in the last six months and has a growing pipeline of hotels, the opportunities are endless.
“We’ve not only managed to return to pre-pandemic levels, but we’ve surpassed 2019 levels already, and as a business we have the strongest growth pipeline in the history of Quest Serviced Apartments,” said Quest Apartment Hotels Managing Director, David Mansfield.
“This pipeline growth shows huge confidence – even with the mounting pressures within the construction space – that individual business owners have not only in our proven franchising model, but our business strategy and wealth opportunities.”
For those that are interested in taking charge of their own hotel business, as a Quest Franchise Business Owner, now is an opportune time to do so.
Current opportunities at Quest
Quest’s strong nationwide presence means there are opportunities for budding Franchise Business Owners all over the country.
Among the hotels currently open and seeking owners is Quest Perth Ascot, located between Perth airport and the city centre; as well as the recently refurbished Quest Echuca in regional Victoria.
There are also numerous properties that are currently in development that require Franchise Business Owners.
Also in the Melbourne region are Quest Collingwood in the inner suburbs, which is set to open in March 2023; and Quest Truganina, a 75-room hotel in the western suburbs, that is expected to be completed mid-2024.
Beyond the city of Melbourne, Quest Geelong Central, located a short distance from Geelong’s key employment precincts, is slated to open in June 2023.
In Sydney, Quest has two hotels currently in development. Quest Woolooware Bay in the southern suburbs is expected to open in May 2023, and Quest Blacktown in the western suburbs, scheduled to open the following October.
Located at 26 Second Avenue in the CBD, Quest Blacktown is part of a $30 million-dollar mixed-use development by Gitane Living. The hotel will feature 82 rooms across 11 upper floors in the new 23-level development, which will also include a retail area and private residences.
A number of major infrastructure projects are underway in the Blacktown area, including a $150 million capital works program, making it an appealing location.
“Traditionally underpinned by industrial employment in manufacturing and wholesale trade sectors, the Blacktown area is transitioning, and we anticipate that the demand for quality corporate travel accommodation in the area will continue to increase,” said Quest’s General Manager of Growth and Capital Strategy, James Shields.
“It’s understood there will be an increase in knowledge-intensive and population-serving jobs, especially in the health and education sectors, and Quest will be well placed to sustain the long and short stay travel requirements emerging.”
And that’s not all. In sunny Queensland, Quest has also got a hotel in the works with Quest on Wickham Terrace, located in inner-city Brisbane, expected to open in July 2024.
