Twenty Four Seven Hotels, a third-party hospitality management company for premium-branded, select-service and lifestyle hotel segments in the western U.S., has named Dan Grunbeck corporate F&B director. In the newly created role, he will implement and lead strategic operations to enhance offerings and partner with hotels to create unique, market-based food and beverage concepts, as well as source quality products that adhere to brand standards.
“Dan is a proven F&B leader well known for developing innovative dining experiences while boosting efficiencies,” said David Wani, CEO, Twenty Four Seven Hotels. “He is highly regarded for his ability to elevate the F&B experience and overall department revenues with an uncanny knack for improving training, retention, service and profitability while monitoring quality and presentation across all brands.”
