Expertise in the Hotel and Restaurant Industry
THE UNISONO STORY
As hoteliers, we have always asked ourselves how we can counteract the acute shortage of skilled workers, create more free space for the essentials and at the same time reduce the high fixed costs. How can private hoteliers benefit from the synergy effects of a hotel group without losing their independence and individuality? This is how the 360° management model for individual hotels came into being in 2019. Hoteliers can outsource all support functions to UNISONO that are not needed directly on site, in the hotel.
