Leading international restaurant services firm, Hospitality House (HH), has announced its acquisition of Hicks Design Group.
The acquisition adds Foodservice Planning and Design to HH’s suite of hospitality services, which include food and beverage focused pre-development consulting, real estate services and talent procurement.
Cody Hicks, the founder of Hicks Design Group will join as managing partner of HH’s newly formed division.
Hicks said: “We are excited to become a part of this multifaceted organization that will provide us with a platform to help grow our business. We look forward to bringing our talents to center stage in the hospitality industry and working on world-class projects across the US.”
The creation of the Foodservice Design practice accompanies unprecedented growth for the firm’s London office.
Since opening an official outpost in 2016, Hospitality House EMEA has achieved exponential financial growth, reporting a 200% increase in revenue over nearly two years. This consistent expansion reflects the company’s healthy pipeline of high-profile hotel, restaurant, and corporate projects.
Hospitality House CEO, Steven Kamali, said: “We strive to make food and beverage integration and activation as simple as possible for our clients.
“Adding an in-house foodservice design team was an organic next step for us. We anticipate growing their business by 400% by engaging in over 50 new projects in the coming year.”
Founded in 2001 by Kamali, Hospitality House was created with the intent of providing food and beverage solutions to the hotel and real estate communities.
