Key Strategies to Help Hotels Boost F&B Profit
Key Strategies to Help Hotels Boost F&B Profit — By Adam Hoydysh

Plum · 19 Jun

Hoteliers, now more than ever, must demonstrate their ability to spend money the right way while building out multiple revenue-generating, guest-centric segments across their operational model. Food and beverage programs are often one of the most under-valued hospitality segments which can deliver a great deal of revenue potential — that is, if it's done correctly. According to speakers on an F&B panel at The 2017 Lodging Conference, hoteliers who are doing F&B best know how to combine trends with experiences to yield high-margin operations. Over the last few years, industry experts have predicted that traditional hotel food and beverage is on its way out. While most hotels still offer room service, food and beverage programs are now expected to evolve in tandem with modern guest expectations. Costly room service and mini-bars are — in the eyes of many — now an antiquated format, destined to be replaced by new, more progressive F&B concepts and personalized, guest-driven options. U.S. hotel food-and-beverage revenue per occupied room (F&B RevPOR) increased by 2.7% in 2018, according to total-year data from STR. However, within that increase, we saw a 4.2% decrease in In-Room Dining RevPOR. Room service, after all, represents a costly expenditure for hotels (often without the expected return) and mini-bars are notorious for lackluster performance and massive operational burden.

Hotel Mogel Consulting Limited · 13 Jun

Up until the hospitality industry started to change over half a century ago, everyone was accustomed to believing that a city's best restaurant would be found at a luxury hotel downtown. Such a property's premier restaurant would often serve as a perennial draw for both out-of-towners as well as locals, with reservations coveted and those seated immediately bestowing status upon their patrons.
