Just over two years after leaving the restaurant business, longtime operator Scott Bowman is writing the next chapter in his hospitality career.

Bowman is CEO and one of three managing partners of High level hospitality in Bentonville. The company has operated quietly over the past few months while developing its investment strategy, but appears poised to move quickly after its initial acquisition in August.

Bowman has nearly 30 years of experience in the food and beverage industry in multiple markets, including Atlanta and Boston. Originally from Fort Smith, he moved to Fayetteville in 2005 and opened Theo’s in downtown Fayetteville.

Over the next 15 years, Bowman Restaurant Group (BRG) opened more than a dozen restaurants, bars and hotel dining concepts, becoming one of the region’s leading hospitality companies. But in 2020 he sold BRG after the pandemic changed the equation for the restaurant industry.

With HighGround, Bowman said he was most excited about the team and their qualifying. They cover many sectors, from hospitality and real estate to strategy, architecture and design, hotel development, luxury wellness and finance. They bring together a wide range of experience to design, build and operate a new generation of hospitality concepts.

Ramsay Ball of Bentonville and Jeff Glasco of Kansas City, Mo., are also managing partners. Ball is a real estate manager and investor with nearly 35 years of experience in Arkansas. Glasco is an entrepreneur and a business strategist.

“To have this full range of abilities [working together] is unheard of right now,” Bowman said in a recent interview. “I have been able to work with many talented people over the years but never a collection working on the same project at the same time, sharing the same values. This is a big problem for me.

Glasco began his career at Accenture and has spent the past 10 years building several new businesses. He said many directors have worked together on other projects, and he is convinced that collectively their skills and experience can be disruptive.

“It’s unique,” ​​he says. “I haven’t experienced anything like this regarding how the team came together.”

Bowman believes the founding team’s wide range of capabilities gives HighGround an edge for potential customers.

“Whether we’re establishing and growing new brands, whether we’re partnering with clients, whether we’re offering professional services, that’s where we step in with immediate capabilities from day one,” he said.

FROM ARIZONA
Glasco believes the hospitality industry is poised to benefit from remote working and consumers who discovered the outdoors when the pandemic began in 2020.

The 2021 Outdoor Participation Trends Report, commissioned by the Outdoor Foundation, found that in 2020, 53% of Americans ages 6 and older participated in outdoor recreation at least once , the highest turnout ever. 7.1 million more Americans participated in outdoor recreation in 2020 than the year before.

“We believe there is a great opportunity to meet consumers where they are,” he said. “And where they are today is looking for unique experiences. They don’t have to be mind-blowing experiences. Strategically, the common thread is well-being. Create spaces where you can rest and recharge on the road. This will be a key part of all these projects.

“Where the modern consumer is, that’s where we want to be. We don’t think many companies do this on a large scale.

Bowman said HighGround has nearly a dozen new and existing concepts in various stages of development and are spread from coast to coast and even in the US Virgin Islands. They focus on wellness, adventure travel, dining and lifestyle/luxury hotels.

The company’s initial project is an angling destination in Arizona. HighGround raised and raised $4.5 million from investors to buy Cliff Dwellers Lodge in Marble Canyon and two associated companies.

From Glen Canyon Dam to Lees Ferry, Cliff Dwellers offers some of the best trout fishing and paddling the lower waters of the Colorado River.

The previous owners intended to sell the property to partners who could deploy new capital to improve its offerings for future generations of adventurers.

HighGround is investing in updating the 21-room hotel, amenities, operations, and employee experiences at the property.

“With Cliff Dwellers, we have a unique opportunity to reinvent and revamp this already incredible mining business for the next 20 years,” Bowman said.

BUILDING BRANDS
In the immediate term, HighGround is establishing three new brands, two of which in the outdoor leisure space.

Sky Outpost is an urban campsite on nearly 5 acres in downtown Grand Junction, Colorado on the banks of the Colorado River. HighGround partnered with founder Jen Taylor, a resident of Grand Junction, to bring her vision to life.

HighGround offered Taylor a true partnership to ensure the development and financial viability of the concept.

When completed, Sky Outpost will provide a place to recharge and relax for mountain travellers, hikers and cyclists. Accommodations include tents, cabins, retro trailers, RVs and campers.

El Jet’s Cantina is a restaurant concept attached to Sky Outpost or can be standalone.

Idyllwood is a natural adventure retreat concept with base camps, cabins and tents designed for regional or remote destinations. The first location is an 80-acre wooded site in Northfield, Mass., adjacent to the Connecticut River and is a public-private partnership. The site is under construction, with an opening scheduled for 2023 or 2024.

HighGround has partnered with Incredible Building Co. in Kansas City, Missouri, to supply soft-sided base camp dwellings and hard-sided cabins for all of its outdoor recreation brands. It is a separate company related to HighGround, owned by Glasco and Christian Arnold, a partner of HighGround and responsible for the architecture and design of the company.

“Incredible Building Co.’s initial vision is to serve customers like HighGround,” Glasco said. “If you look at the demand for two initial sites – Idyllwood and Sky Outpost – we will need product for those. So we basically build for those two.

HighGround creates a buzz with an Incredible Building Co. cabin on display in a vacant lot at 200 E. Central Ave. The owners will soon develop the site into a full-service, 142-room hotel slated to open in 2024. Bentonville’s holding company, Runway Group, led by Walton’s heirs, Tom and Steuart Walton, is the developer and a subsidiary of Walton owns the land.

“We have a permit to have the cabin there until mid-October, and we’re lucky the city and the owners are letting us come in and do that,” Glasco said. “They’ve been very generous. We wanted to start one in Bentonville because it’s a hub for outdoor recreation.

Glasco said Incredible Building Co. is focused on fulfilling retail orders, which will eventually be available to consumers.

HighGround is also working on a lifestyle hotel concept called The Line Up, envisioned to support traveling youth sports teams, families and weekend travelers.

Bowman said HighGround was under contract to buy an existing three-story hotel in the Legends Outlets shopping complex in Kansas City, Kansas, and convert it to The Lineup at Monarch Village. The deal is expected to close in November, with renovations starting in early 2023.

HighGround will expand The Line Up locations across the United States by identifying high traffic areas with sports facilities and partnerships with facility operators. The company has already identified more than a dozen possible locations in 10 states.

INVESTOR APPETITE
Glasco said HighGround’s $4.5 million capital raise via a special purpose vehicle (SPV) came from individual investors, many of them in northwest Arkansas. The strategy for the initial projects is to continue to operate a regional network of angel investors in northwest Arkansas and metro Kansas City.

He said HighGround plans to deploy between $15 million and $25 million in capital over the next three to six months.

“So far, the response from angel investors has been very warm,” he said. “Especially for cliff dwellers. This is such an anomaly of a property. The fact that we were able to conclude this agreement is a testament to the appetite of investors. Now we are starting to have discussions with more institutional investors, where they can seize greater opportunities.

Bowman said retaining investors is key to HighGround’s growth strategy.

“We are building a network of investors and want them to be lifelong investors in HighGround,” he said. “Cliff Dwellers investors have the opportunity to join the next project that may be right for them. We build a good foundation and also show loyalty to them.

Like the French Riviera and the Amalfi Coast, the Hamptons stand out as an enduring icon of coastal glamour. Hampton Bays, located near the end of Long Island (you’ll find NYC at the other end) and known as the “first stop east”, is the Hamptons beach town closest to the city – and is once again home to a hotel worthy of a destination. Of the many famous historic hotels dotted across the United States, including some located along the shores of Long Island, few are more storied and treasured than recently renovated hotels. Canoe Place Inn and Cabins. The property offers a low-key take on the Hamptons lifestyle with elegantly redesigned accommodations, locavore restaurants, and a spa created in partnership with ONDA by Naomi Watts.

where it all started

Canoe Place has long attracted revelers to Hamptons Bay.

If its walls could talk, Canoe Place would fill the shelves with bestselling books. Documented as the site of America’s oldest inn, Canoe Place reopened this summer with much of its original “bones” intact and carefully restored as a new boutique property for today’s discerning travelers. today. The next chapter of the historic property continues the story of a much-loved and very famous destination frequented by luminaries of years past.

Canoe Place first established itself as a notable place to stay for weary travelers and water horses in 1697. The name recalled the property’s early use as a Native American portage site. After the Revolutionary War, this then simple lodging house became a place of importance and was considered a fine social gathering place for bold names and politicians.

For the next two centuries and under different ownerships, Canoe Place continued to build itself as a premier destination for vacationers. Ernest A. Buchmuller of the Waldorf Astoria and his son-in-law Louis developed the inn into a full-fledged, respectable resort hotel, braving devastating fires and even a Prohibition-era shutdown led by federal agents of Washington disguised as wealthy patrons at the height of the Roaring 1920s.

The new owners responsible for the renovation, cousins ​​Gregg and Mitchell Rechler of Rechler Equity Partners, refused to let an American treasure be lost to history; they set their sights on rejuvenating Canoe Place into the icon it once was for over a decade. Today, accommodations include 20 rooms and suites, five cottages, and residential-style boathouses spread over six acres that span the Shinnecock Canal.

More than a hotel

CanoePlace_Image_2

Contemporary furnishings allow for an elegant and sophisticated stay at Canoe Place.

The colonial-inspired structure has always been a prominent hub, and even functioning as anything from a nightclub complex to a dance hall, Canoe Place has also always been considered an invaluable cultural hub. Exceptional hospitality remains the backbone of the establishment, as it invites guests and passers-by to stay a little longer and linger in the beauty and history of an American landmark.

Despite its decade-long, head-to-toe renovation, the new vision maintains the overall integrity of the hotel, and the restoration produces a modernized version of the historic inn. Working with renowned Brooklyn-based interior designers, Workstead, a “garden by the sea” concept, inspired the historic-turned-modern renovation. Unpretentious comfort best describes the chic, vintage-inspired designs and trellis-patterned wallpaper that perfectly complement the original fireplaces and vaulted ceilings in the Grand Ballroom and Pavilion, all preserved to perfection. And Workstead has outfitted each stylish suite and cottage with contemporary furnishings and sustainable bath products from Costa Brazil.

Art lovers will be captivated by the collection of paintings and sculptures by renowned artists such as Doug Aitken and James Turrell, whose Obsolete Quaker items the pieces are beautifully displayed in the foyer of Canoe Place. Other works include Chief Pretty Eagle by Choctaw-Cherokee artist Jeffrey Gibson and the towering 12-foot fiberglass and steel deer statue by Tony Tasset.

Beautiful design and dining room

Farm-to-table dining with a Mediterranean flair at Good Ground Tavern

The property’s role as a cultural center continues in the kitchen of Canoe Place with exceptional dining experiences offered under the direction of award-winning chef Ülfet Ralph. A Relais & Château veteran, Ralph brings his Mediterranean roots to the table with a globally inspired yet regionally inspired menu that changes with the seasons. Working in partnership with the East End’s community of farmers, artisans and fishers, Canoe Place’s culinary team sources the freshest, highest quality ingredients to suit the season. year.

Start your evening with a fresh summer gazpacho with red tomatoes right next to the vine before sharing a plate of grilled watermelon and feta salad served with local sea bass over an open fire with mixed organic vegetables. Save room for dessert and dig into a new local favorite like lemon semifreddo with apricot-peach meringue or decadent chocolate cake. If you really want to treat yourself, the filo bread pudding with banana, cardamom cream and coffee bourbon sauce is a must – and can be enjoyed at the bar with an extra glass of whiskey or expertly crafted Sazerac to make it good. measure.

An oasis of well-being

The serene setting offers blissful moments at Canoe Place’s full-service spa.

And what would a large hotel be without a wellness centre? Nestled in the restored Canoe Place Inn is a beautifully appointed full-service spa created in partnership with renowned beauty team ONDA. ONDA at Canoe Place offers exclusive new treatments including the Rejuvenating Facial and Body Bliss treatment and signature ONDA experiences like Ultimate Lift Facial and Total Wellness Massage, as well as a curated collection of clean, sustainable beauty products.

Joining other stars who have visited Canoe Place in the past as admirers of the property, ONDA co-founder Naomi Watts shares her passion for wellness with facials, massages and energy treatments led by a beautician for the pleasure of clients. “I, along with the entire ONDA team, am thrilled to be part of the Canoe Place story,” Watts said. “We are thrilled with the property’s story and look forward to sharing it with our beloved fans.” From every angle, Canoe Place is ripe for rediscovery.

BharatKlub wants to be a digital life partner for low-income workers https://hotels-benin.com/bharatklub-wants-to-be-a-digital-life-partner-for-low-income-workers/ Wed, 21 Sep 2022 16:15:00 +0000 https://hotels-benin.com/bharatklub-wants-to-be-a-digital-life-partner-for-low-income-workers/ Whether it’s finding a home in a new city, getting a job, or even accessing loan and insurance services, today there’s an app for everything.

Whether it’s finding a home in a new city, getting a job, or even accessing loan and insurance services, today there’s an app for everything. However, low-income workers in India still find it difficult to avail of these services.

Start-up based in Bangalore Bharatklub embarked on a journey to bridge this digital divide and enable access to these services at affordable prices.

Founded by Deepak Sonthalia and Komal Meena in 2020, BharatKlub aims to be the “digital life partner for the low-income workforce”.

“There is a huge portion of our population, especially the blue collar workers who remain in urban areas whose basic needs are still not being met and we want to change that,” says Deepak.

According to Deepak, there are three main priorities for low-wage earners: how much can one earn, what can be saved, and how to insure one’s life.

Using this framework, Deepak and his co-founder Komal brainstormed ideas that would help this demographic.

The duo toyed with the idea of ​​first going fully digital to reach low-income workers, but decided against it and established a physical presence first.

At first, BharatKlub decided to meet the housing needs of low-wage people.

Deepak says the startup’s user base includes people who have migrated from a small town or village to cities and their first priority is housing. BharatKlub offers accommodation at the price of Rs 1,000 per month.

To enable the availability of these accommodations, BharatKlub has entered into agreements with the owners of the facilities promising a constant flow of customers. On the other hand, in order to reach out to their customers, the team of this startup ventured into the industrial hubs of Bengaluru and distributed fliers or put up banners to publicize their product.

“People have to be willing to pay and it has to fit their budget,” says Deepak.

BharatKlub has two types of housing agreements. In one, the startup finds tenants for landlords who have already built the dwelling. In the other case, the startup asks landowners to build such housing and then takes over management.

Today, BharatKlub has about 10,000 customers who stay in its accommodations and these are usually people who earn between 15,000 and 25,000 rupees per month.

BharatKlub directly or indirectly operates over 150 buildings in Bangalore. Also, it has more than 250 buildings listed on the platform.

After housing, the startup aims to help its users tap into the employment segment. BharatKlub says it is building a platform where people can search for short and long term work opportunities.

BharatKlub has entered into negotiations with various service providers such as banks, insurance companies and healthcare institutions that can cater to the needs of this segment of the population.

“We are also considering a network of restaurants that can provide food at a lower cost and this service can be used by blue-collar workers,” says Deepak.

Deepak believes the growing popularity of smartphones will make people more comfortable accessing services through the digital channel.

BharatKlub will not charge any fees from the users of its services but will collect some commission from the providers of the product or service.

“We would like to accompany these people in most aspects of their lives,” says Deepak.

Currently, the startup is only operational in Bangalore and is planning a foray into other cities such as Mumbai, Pune and Delhi. BharatKlub currently employs five people.

BharatKlub started as a seed company and recently raised a small round of angel funding.

Deepak has a background in retail with work experience at Trent and Reliance Retail, while Komal is a graduate of IIT Mumbai and has worked in a few tech companies.

According to various industry estimates, India has around 30 to 45 million blue collar workers depending on the classification. Even within this segment, there are subcategories of skilled workers who perform manual tasks like vehicle mechanics and crane operators.

A BetterPlace report says at least nine million jobs are expected to be created in sectors such as logistics, e-commerce, hospitality, manufacturing, financial services, and more. in FY23. Most of these jobs will be created in urban areas.

Several startups in India are developing solutions for blue-collar workers. Some of these include Apna job portal, Vahan, WorkIndia, among others.

Railway strike: What you need to know about cancellations after a tentative agreement https://hotels-benin.com/railway-strike-what-you-need-to-know-about-cancellations-after-a-tentative-agreement/ Thu, 15 Sep 2022 18:08:01 +0000 https://hotels-benin.com/railway-strike-what-you-need-to-know-about-cancellations-after-a-tentative-agreement/ Debra Edwards was organizing her suitcase in her hotel room in Chicago on Tuesday morning when a message from Amtrak appeared on her phone.

Debra Edwards was organizing her suitcase in her hotel room in Chicago on Tuesday morning when a message from Amtrak appeared on her phone. His to-do list trip – which was due to leave on Wednesday – has been cancelled. There was no additional information on who to contact for assistance.

“I should have left Denver right now,” Edwards told The Washington Post on Thursday.

Edwards’ long-distance train from Chicago to California was one of many Amtrak canceled this week as a precautionary measure ahead of a possible national rail strike. While the labor dispute was between the freight railroads and the unions that represent their employees, most Amtrak routes outside of the Northeast Corridor and many commuter rail systems operate on freight tracks.

On Thursday, the White House announced a tentative agreement between carriers and union leaders to avoid a strike. In an alert the same morning, Amtrak said it is “working to quickly reinstate canceled trains and contacting affected customers directly to accommodate the earliest available departures.” Operations are expected to return to normal by Friday, The Post reported.

Back at her home in Dayton, Ohio, Edwards said Amtrak hadn’t contacted her beyond the alerts and boilerplate responses she received via email. The recent retiree, 65, lost hundreds of dollars after a tumultuous rush to find new accommodation, transportation and deal with refunds and cancellations.

Here’s what customers facing similar issues need to know about the current situation.

MTA buses are now circulating around newly arrived migrants — most from Texas — to various shelters and hotels in the five boroughs, The Post has learned.

Several groups of cross-border migrants were first dropped off by private coaches at the Manhattan Port Authority on Sunday before boarding city buses and heading to their new accommodations.

A source said municipal buses will normally make several stops throughout the city to drop off migrants.

An MTA bus dropped off all of its passengers at the HRA Men’s Shelter on Murray Hill in Manhattan on Sunday afternoon.

“We are providing two buses a day at the request of the city,” MTA Rep. Aaron Donovan said in a statement to The Post. “The destinations of the buses are determined by the city. The city agreed to pay the full cost of the bus service.

The cost of the arrangement was not immediately disclosed.

Several migrants could be seen on their smart phones after boarding city buses on Sunday, some waving and giving a reporter a thumbs up.

Until now, migrants were normally placed in taxis to reach their shelters with the help of facilitators.

An estimated 8,000 migrants – the vast majority from the Lone Star State – have arrived in the city in recent months.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott redirected them from his field to New York to protest what he called the Biden administration’s failure to shore up the southern border.

The MTA provided two buses a day to be used for transporting migrants, according to MTA Representative Aaron Donovan.
