The first easyHotel franchisee is planning to open a second hotel in Zurich this year. Swiss businessman, Philipp Fink, who opened the first franchised easyHotel in Basel, is aiming to open his second hotel in October. The Zurich hotel will offer 33 rooms and be in a prime city centre location.
'The easy brand is one of the most recognisable in the world, and with two years experience of running the easyHotel in Basel, I am delighted to have finally found another property to convert, allowing me to open my second hotel,' says Philipp Fink the easyHotel Basel and Zurich franchisee. 'The easyHotel franchise provides both existing and potential franchisees with great opportunities and I am continuing my search for suitable sites in other key locations!'
Lawrence Alexander, easyHotel CEO, adds: 'Philipp has been extremely successful running Basel for nearly two years now, and we are delighted with his vote of confidence in committing to another prime city location in Switzerland. Signing with easyHotel provides franchisees with the chance to leverage a hugely powerful brand and gives entrepreneurs like Philipp the scope to grow a business in a wide range of destinations.'
