FEBRUARY, 2021 — Holiday Inn hotels are coming to the streets, with some of them opening early.
“You can be a Holiday Hotel today and still have your day to day activities,” said Andrew Puzder, the president and CEO of CKE Restaurants, which owns and operates the popular chains McDonalds, Pizza Hut, and Burger King.
Puzder said that as of Friday, many of his restaurants had opened early and are doing well.
At least 14 of C.H.I.T.’s 20 holiday inns will open at 7 a.m. on Friday, including the popular Holiday Inn at Lakewood in the suburbs of Denver, according to a tweet by the resort.
The first of the 20,000-plus Holiday Inn locations will open in Denver, the company said.
“It is a great day to celebrate the holidays and celebrate our guests,” C. H.
I, the resort, said in a statement.
“We are so excited to welcome our first Holiday Inn hotel guests to our community.”
The other new C.I., the Lakewood, will open the day after, and will have a full breakfast menu for $10.
There are already more than 500 holiday inn hotels in the U.S. with locations in about 200 cities.
In the first four months of 2021, C.A.T. plans to open more than 2,500 holiday inn restaurants in major cities across the U to celebrate its new location and to help the industry grow.
As part of the plan, CKE has committed to spending $1 billion over the next five years on new hotels, restaurants, and other improvements in its resorts.
