Butler was founded with the belief that the guest experience should never be compromised due to the constraints of a hotel’s budget, size or location. Through it’s vertically integrated model, Butler fosters a dynamic ecosystem that incorporates the owner, operator, guest and local city. Utilizing guest data across multiple hotel brands and the operational power of shared economy, Butler is opening new profit channels for its partners while curating a more personalized guest journey. It’s a solution that has long been missing from the business: A tech-stack with turnkey integrations for service distribution, food preparation, delivery and fulfillment. It allows for the expansion of offerings – without expanding resources and costs.

“From the start we’ve had this vision of building a platform that will improve the travel experience for all. Think: hospitality, on demand. Hospitality, delivered,” explains Premtim Gjonbalic, Founder and CEO of Butler Hospitality, “This round of funding allows us to continue to vertically integrate the industry – and spearhead the new generation of travel.”

As an extension of its platform, Butler continues to develop a portfolio of relevant dining concepts, with guest and operator experience top of mind. These are expertly designed to exceed hotel brand standards and guest expectations, filling formerly loss leading hotel spaces with revenue generators through reliable rent and in-room dining commissions. And, the expansion of Butler’s dining concepts couldn’t arrive at a better time. More than ever, the hotels are relying on technological integrations and logistics to power amenities and F&B services so the industry can return to its pre-pandemic state.

From a real estate and acquisitions lens, each of Butler’s hotel leases helps to grow their network effect with owners, management companies, and global brands. Through this business model, Butler is creating a new market by taking an asset and monetizing it like never before. By maximizing the value of every square foot of each property, Butler is helping hotels realize opportunities of turning an underutilized space into a revenue generator.

As the world moves into recovery and a rise in domestic, international and corporate travel, Butler continues to leverage its partnerships and brand relationships with leading hospitality partners including Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, Marriott, and more, to become the leading hospitality technology platform.
