Is COVID-19 the Armageddon for the hotel industry? That's the first question I asked Dr. Donald W. Wise, co-founder and senior managing director of Turnbull Capital Group. With over 36 years of investment banking experience in the hospitality industry, he and this firm have been involved in roughly $20 billions of advisory, consultation, note sales, preferred equity and debt placements, and transactional engagements on both the buy-side and the sell-side.

Amidst so many sensationalized stories about COVID-19 or politics throughout August, you may have missed the coverage of what is potentially a gamechanger in the foodservice and retail industries. First announced over a year ago, Starbucks is now readying to deploy a blockchain network for end-to-end coffee bean traceability and greater product transparency, and this will soon influence what motivates customers to buy at your restaurant, sundry or store.

Imagine a quick mathematical scenario. Business drops 50% due to the lockdown earlier this year then you see a recovery of 50% of this number once the pandemic is over. Occupancy is back to normal, right? Not true; it is actually still down 25% from where it was before the drop.

Call me old-fashioned. To me, a hotel's guest list is completely confidential, released only on a need-to-know basis. This protects not only the guest's privacy but also the hotel from the likes of paparazzi, over-zealous bill collectors and jealous spouses. And as it concerns high status guests, privacy is tantamount to loyalty.

Look at these two coffee mugs. Both say Pantone Universe (trademarked) on the surface. But one is a knockoff. Can you tell which one?

This is a special case that I've been waiting to write about since it hit the airwaves here in Canada in late October. Most interesting here is that it has a few powerful implications for the fight traditional hotels are facing against industry disruptors coming in the form of home sharing.
