PCH opens third-party management to additional groups

Hospitality management, acquisition and development company PCH Hotels & Resorts has expanded its services to include third-party hotel management services for additional ownership groups.

“Historically, we have provided third-party hotel operations services for a select group of hoteliers, but as the market continues to rebound post-pandemic, we believe now is the time to begin offering our services to a larger pool,” said Jim Buckalew, chairman/CEO, PCH Hotels & Resorts. “Having operated hotels since 1999, PCH understands what it takes to manage a successful hotel that provides outstanding guest services and a profitable bottom line with 2022 a record year.”

With 200 years of combined operational experience, PCH leaders have been involved with more than 500 properties, according to the company. It provides the following management services: hotel operations, food & beverage management, revenue management, spa operations, capital budget management, accounting services, human resources and IT services.

PCH’s operations team provides a strategic and data-driven approach toward positive topline development, market share growth, budgeting, community stewardship and guest experiences. With a focus on experiential lifestyle hotels and resorts, the company works with both branded and independent, boutique hotels across the Southern U.S. PCH also operates 24-plus F&B outlets, as well as six European spas.

Additional acquisition and development abilities offered by PCH include due diligence assistance, repositioning and rebranding analysis, brand selection and evaluation, capital expenditure assessment and CapEx plan development, hotel design and site plan analysis, IT Infrastructure, three-five-year proformas, business plan development, market and revenue projections, franchise agreement review and assistance and preopening services.

“We have operated through multiple cycles and continue to produce enviable results when other companies simply have closed shop,” Buckalew added. “We continue to receive an increasing volume of calls requesting our services, and we are confident we can provide stellar results for additional owners based on our existing performance standards. We are familiar with all the major brands in the select- and full-service categories, plus a wealth of F&B and spa experience derived from our full portfolio.”

He added, “With a growing number of hotels expected to change hands during 2023, an increased need for superior operators is needed. We are prepared and more than capable to meet that need.”

PCH is currently working with additional hospitality groups that have hotels in the pipeline. He said, “We’re already working on a preopening basis to help them to grow and that we can grow together.”
