Making Passions A Reality
Creating the Next Generation of Leisure & Hospitality businesses through investment and operations
At the forefront of the rebirth of the leisure and hospitality market
Hudson Group was formed in March 2020, by Karan Goyal and Jeremy Mandel, initially to serve as capital partners for premier, middle-market operators in the Food & Beverage segment of the hospitality industry whom we believe merit a dedicated source of growth capital and corporate back-end infrastructure that will streamline their path towards achieving desired scale.
We saw an opportunity to provide a capital solution to an underserved segment of the hospitality market, as healthy capital availability has traditionally been skewed towards only a short list of national and global F&B power players.
Instead of solely investing in hospitality businesses, Hudson Group leads or assists with all aspects of the business from real estate search to construction management to hiring and day-to-day operations. We believe that taking a disciplined value oriented approach from day 1 significantly reduces execution risk and primes the business to deliver outsized returns for our investors and best positions the team to scale and grow its brands.
Our approach also extends beyond traditional F&B into the QSR, health & wellness and travel segments of the leisure and hospitality industry. We believe that our understanding of the drivers of the traditional F&B model and our approach as disciplined investors will position us for long-term growth and allow us to continue to disrupt the traditional investment model in the leisure and hospitality industries.
