DALLAS — The Texas-based G6 Hospitality — one of America’s largest owner/operators of economy lodging — had a good year in 2012 with the opening of 57 Motel 6 and half a dozen Studio 6 properties, bringing its room inventory to more than 5,100.
“We opened a record number of franchises in 2012, a perfect way to celebrate the Motel 6 brand’s 50th anniversary and to kick off our new ownership by The Blackstone Group,” said Jim Amorosia, CEO of G6 Hospitality. “We will continue the aggressive growth of Motel 6 and Studio 6 in 2013 with 100 projected openings, thanks to the brands’ proven track record of success and results.”
The openings include properties in several states across the U.S., with 18 locations having been launched in Texas alone. And, two Motel 6 properties were opened in Canada last year — Swift Current, Sask., and Moosomin, Sask.
