Globally, Choice Hotels International, Inc. franchises over 6,500 hotels in 40 countries. The Choice Hotels brand is synonymous with warm hospitality and real value, and is positioned to provide a spectrum of lodging options to meet guests’ needs. To continue delivering on their brand promise in Europe, Choice Hotels selected Trinity Purchasing, to supply high-quality, cost-effective collective products and services to clients across the hospitality industry, via a network of over 400 strictly-vetted suppliers.
Trinity Purchasing combines the procurement needs of its various clients to deliver services at a competitive price. By making use of Trinity Purchasing’s collective activities, Choice Hotels could potentially unlock considerable savings for many of its European franchisees whilst optimizing quality, level of service, or specific logistical needs – all of which are considered when vetting potential suppliers.
Speaking about the agreement, Bouke Koppert, Chief Operating Officer for Trinity Purchasing, commented: “We are thrilled to have concluded a deal with Choice Hotels – a brand whose ambition to give guests value-for-money alongside high-quality services aligns closely with our mission. I look forward to working with Choice Hotels going forward, as part of a fruitful relationship.”
Choice’s Senior Vice President of International Mark Pearce says, “we are looking forward to leveraging Trinity’s purchasing power to further enhance our value proposition. By working with local resources in the EU we can be assured that our hotels and guests are getting access to the highest quality products.”
