Tradavo Selected to Design and Supply
La Quinta Inns & Suites’ Hotel Pantry Program
Wednesday, September 26th 2012 Lakewood, CO: La Quinta Inns & Suites recently unveiled a new hotel pantry program named “Bright Side Market.” The 24/7 retail store will be installed in La Quinta Inns & Suites lobbies and is supplied by Tradavo – a national hotel pantry supplier specializing in hotel retail. Tradavo designers assisted La Quinta in selecting the assortment, fixtures, appliances, retail pricing and branding based on proprietary retail data for over 4,000 hotels they currently serve nationwide. The Bright Side Market will offer snacks, quick meals, frozen foods, sundries, personal care and electronic items such as a convenience to guests who may have left an item behind or require an impulse item to eat or drink.
The Bright Side Market flagship store was launched in San Antonio at the La Quinta Inn & Suites – San Antonio Conference Center in August of 2011. The store consistently exceeded revenue and profitability expectations during the test period with monthly sales reaching $8,000 - $15,000 per month while maintaining a 50% or higher profit margin.
Jeff Palla, La Quinta’s Senior Vice President of Franchise Services said, “We are pleased to partner with Tradavo for this introduction, based on their consistency of product, ability to distribute nationwide and the strength of the consumer research behind their offerings. We believe the Bright Side Market will offer the best products available and are pleased to make them available to our guests.”
