It feels like yesterday when OYO first opened its doors to guests from far and wide to experience China. Today, we celebrate our first anniversary in the country! It is an important milestone for not just OYO and OYOpreneurs, but also for our partners and, above all, customers, who continue to motivate us so that we can serve them better, every day.
China has been our home market alongside India and it offers a tremendous opportunity both in terms of market size and travellers. In the past one year, we have come a long way in transforming the hospitality landscape in the country. OYO today offers 180,000+ franchised and leased rooms in 4,000+ hotels under franchise, manchise and leased format across 285+ cities in China, including Hangzhou, Xian, Nanjing, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Shenzhen, Xiamen, and Kunming, among others.
In just 12 months, we have successfully made to the list of one of China’s top five groups of hotels and become the world’s fastest-growing chain of leased and franchised hotels, homes and spaces. All this bears strong testimony to the hard work, passion, and commitment of each and every OYOpreneur. We are truly humbled and honoured by such milestones, which reaffirm our mission of providing superior hospitality experience to all our guests around the world.
It’s been a year full of hard work, hosting thousands of guests from all over the world, building a sustainable business ground’s up. And it has passed by in no time leaving us with new learnings for years to come.
Although a year old in China, we are only getting started. It is still Day 0!
