HotStats has entered into a strategic relationship with Choice Hotels International, allowing Choice franchisees to have access to HotStats’ profitability tools through CHOPS: Choice Hotels Owner Profitability System.

By working with HotStats, owners/operators of Choice’s more than 5,800 U.S. hotels will have access to the highly detailed benchmarking system and data platform, which maps raw accounts data to the Uniform System of Accounts for the Lodging Industry and will allow hotel owners to measure their hotel(s) performance on approximately 550 line items versus other like hotels. 

CHOPS is expected to help Choice franchisees identify performance gaps and systemwide areas of opportunity within labor, benefits, maintenance, breakfast, room expenses, utilities, information technology expenses and more to better manage business and improve profitability.
