[DANBURY, CONN., NOVEMBER 16, 2021] — A proven industry leader in hotel food and beverage operations for more than 40 years, Meyer Jabara Hotels is creating memorable dining experiences for travelers and locals while boosting operating efficiencies of its 20 food-and-beverage outlets and 137,939 square feet of meeting and event space. Leading the initiative is Guy Reinbold, newly appointed corporate Director of Food and Beverage, who also boasts 40 years of leadership experience in hotel and restaurant f&b. In this role, Reinbold will focus on driving revenue and ancillary income for owners by maintaining cost controls, creating fresh food and beverage concepts based on market location, and sourcing quality products all while complying with brand standards.
“A memorable restaurant is about more than the food; it’s an experience for the senses and a journey to somewhere other than wherever you are,” said MJH President Justin Jabara. “Our restaurant operations begin with this story. We use creative solutions and data-driven strategies to propel the many hotel restaurants in our portfolio to success, making them the most competitive assets in each respective market. Guy Reinbold is key to helping us set the tone, direction, and culture of our hotel’s f&b operations going forward with each venue projecting a unique concept that drives a great guest experience and generates industry leading returns.”
Prior to joining Meyer Jabara Hotels, Reinbold spent 22 years with Marriott International, serving as vice president of food and beverage and corporate executive chef. He was highly regarded for his ability to implement methods that improve service, quality, and profitability while monitoring quality, presentation, and quantities of plated food across all brands. He also served as a corporate executive chef for Renaissance Hotels and Resorts. Reinbold is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America.
“To be successful today, full-service hotels with restaurants and catering venues must create concepts that respect and reflect their location,” Reinbold said. “People expect menu items that are comfortable and recognizable, but with a twist. What is exciting to see is that our culinary teams are eager to build new food and beverage experiences — and it’s even helping us to attract new talent. It’s an exciting time to join Meyer Jabara Hotels as the new corporate Director of Food and Beverage. I am proud to be a part of this exceptional leadership team.”
