The word ‘Hotel’ is not just about food and/or stay anymore; it is now synonymous with terms like ‘HOSPITALITY’, ‘SERVICE’ and ‘CUISINES’. As per an analysis done by retail consultancy Technopak, at the end of 2016 the Indian hotel industry’s worth was estimated around US$ 17 billion. Of the total revenue, nearly 70 per cent is being contributed by the unorganized sector and the remaining 30 per cent (US$ 5 billion approx.) comes from the organized sector. The hotel industry is estimated to grow at a CAGR (Compounded Annual Growth Rate) of around 15 per cent over the next five years. Also, with various factors like globalisation (hence increase in foreign tourists for business & leisure), increase in Indian tourists(with various states promoting local tourism thru websites and TV commercials), innumerable holiday packages being designed by various companies, foray of International hotel chains in India(Hilton, Shangri-La, Radisson, Marriott, Meridian, Sheraton, Hyatt, Holiday Inn, InterContinental), playing their role, the ‘food and stay’ business is definitely getting BIGGER by the day. There are uncountable restaurant chains (national & international); Resorts & Clubs; unclassified & Budget hotels and of course the star-rated hotels.
