Hilton has partnered with US boutique coffee chain Bluestone Lane to co-create a food and beverage programme for its Tempo by Hilton brand, which is currently under development.
Through the partnership, Bluestone Lane will become Tempo by Hilton’s exclusive provider of coffee, espresso and tea products at the hotel's onsite cafés.
Additionally, Bluestone Lane will provide small plates and snacks at the hotel’s evening bar, as well as a selection of ready-to-drink coffee beverages, juices and teas.
Hilton unveiled its Tempo brand in 2020 and is currently constructing ‘more than a dozen’ hotels in the US, including sites in New York, Seattle, San Diego and Boston.
“This unique collaboration unites two lifestyle brands to enable an elevated on-property food and beverage experience that will meet the evolving needs of today’s guests who are seeking more progressive fare with healthier options,” said Adam Crocini, Senior Vice President, Global Head of Food and Beverage Brands at Hilton.
Hotel operators globally have faced an uphill struggle amid Covid-19 travel disruption. Nevertheless, the new partnership indicates an ongoing travel recovery in the US, as transport hubs reopen following the easing of pandemic restrictions.
Bluestone Lane was founded in 2013 by the coffee chain’s CEO, Nicholas Stone. The Melbourne-inspired café and coffee shop concept has become one of the fastest-growing boutique hospitality businesses in US, operating more than 55 coffee shops and cafés across the country.
