Coast Hotels, an APA Hotel Canada subsidiary, has landed a significant franchise agreement for all of the existing franchised hotels in the USA. Vancouver-headquartered can begin a USA expansion plan to increase its footprint.
Beginning operations as Coast Hotels USA, the new subsidiary aims to achieve significant growth throughout the USA. The company will purchase real estate in prime locations with new franchise and hotel management contracts and mergers by 2027. In 2022, the company added five hotels to its portfolio; this included the conversion of the Regency Suites Hotel to the Coast Calgary Downtown Hotel & Suites by APA.
Jin Sasaki, Coasts Hotels’ President, commented on this major milestone for the company in their 50-year history.“The opportunity to focus on USA’s most dynamic destinations and introduce our unique, localised approach and our unmatched dedication to our guests will present outstanding opportunities for expansion. We look forward to working with our parent company, APA Hotels, and all of our partners as we embark on a new era as a company.”
