Marking a significant milestone for its franchise program, La Quinta Corporation proudly announces the grand opening of its 50th franchise property. The new four-story, 71- room La Quinta Inn & Suites, owned by franchisee Nick Patel, is located just south of Atlanta, in the suburb of Stockbridge, GA at 3581 South Cameron Parkway.
The La Quinta Inn & Suites - Stockbridge, is the company’s 12th location in the metropolitan Atlanta area. This all suites hotel features an onsite business center, meeting space for 40 people, as well as onsite fitness facilities, including an indoor heated pool and spa. Guest rooms feature traditional La Quinta amenities, including a coffee maker, hair dryer, microwave oven, refrigerator, and an iron and ironing board.
“To have opened our 50th franchise in such a relatively short amount of time speaks volumes about our franchise program and the value of the La Quinta brand,” said Alan Tallis, executive vice president/chief development officer for La Quinta Corporation. “The opportunity to work with dedicated franchisees, such as Nick Patel, has allowed us to exceed our expectations.”
After 30 years as an owner/operator, La Quinta launched its franchise program in the fall of 2000. Within less than two years, La Quinta has opened franchises throughout the U. S., including the Pacific Northwest, New York and Florida.
“It is truly an honor to have the Stockbridge property recognized as La Quinta’s 50th franchise property,” said Nick Patel, franchisee. “We are excited to be playing such a vital role in their expansion plans in the Atlanta area and couldn’t be more pleased with our relationship with La Quinta.”
