Mission Statement

Here are the three main facts of our philosophy, which were characterized with the foundation of the RIMC.

  • RIMC is an international medium-sized hotel operator

    RIMC never uses its own name to brand the properties but rather uses internationally known brands via franchising and is thus the "Whitelabel" of the hotel industry.

    Only a small sign close to the hotel entrance identifies the affiliation with the RIMC group. The background of this philosophy is international integration into international sales, increase in awareness of location and increase of property value. It is crucial that the hotel has its own name, which is supported by the brand. Thus, it additionally generates an increase in value of the name.

    RIMC is unique in Europe, because RIMC could use all international hotel brands via franchising. Another uniqueness is, that RIMC is also allowed to use the master brands, for example Sheraton, Radisson Blu or Steigenberger, this requires trust in RIMC Hotels & Resorts Group as an operator.

  • RIMC offers tailor-made contracts

    It is crucial to treat every hotel project individually and to conclude tailor-made contracts, regardless of whether it is a management -, hybrid -, or lease contract.

    At the same time the respective interests need to be considered as a whole. While dealing with project development a short-term resale can be of importance, or it is all about long-term investment. In both cases a tailor-made contract is necessary and not the often used standardized contracts that are commonly used, especially by US companies. Consequently, RIMC is opposed to the usual management contracts because those have harmed the hospitality industry in general as well as the financial sector. By using a management contract the entire risk stays with the proprietor of the hotel property, who incorporates an operator.

  • RIMC creates and realises concepts for hotels and hotel mixed-use properties

    A hotel is open 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. The labour costs are often much higher than the return on investment. In order to avoid this, RIMC stands for synergies within and around the hotel.

    A hotel can upgrade and improve the surrounding business units with service, when they are planned well in advance. From these elements synergies can be used during construction in the new-building sector and later on operative in order to a achieve a perfect economical situation.

The Core Area

The three core areas /statues of the RIMC

  • Long-term management of hotel properties

    One of our core values is the long-term operation of hotel properties and we also assume the entire operator risk.

    Diverse and often standardize contract- and management-models characterise the hospitality industry. International hotel chains rely on management contracts because they offer a variety of possibilities, instead of signing fixed lease agreements. The porblem is the financial feasibility of hotel properties with a bank based on these simple management contracts. RIMC thinks and acts entrepreneurial.

    The RIMC offers you individual solutions for structuring our long-term business relations:

    - Season contracts, turnover contracts, fixed lease contract

    - Hybrid contracts

    - Percentage lease with minimum guarantee

    - Risk and profit sharing

    - Management contract depending on your needs and requirements

    Our support goes beyond controlling the processes within your property. We pay attention to all aspects - even to the financial feasibility of your project.

  • Expansion to other european countries

    The main goal of our expansion strategy is to extend the international network and to open up new markets.

    RIMC is currently present in the countries Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Spain, Denmark and the Benelux. In the medium-term, further expansions are planned. The expansion to other countries is based on the following principle: firstly, there has to be a hotel project (cash flow) with a signed management contract; this is the basis of RIMC. Secondly, as soon as the hotel management contract for the respective country is concluded, we choose colleagues out of this country  with years of hospitality experience. Thus we create acceptence of RIMC in the country and respect for the mentality and roots. Thereafter, the formation of the new RIMC affiliated company takes place, in which the RIMC International holds the shares completely.

  • Purchase and turnaround of hotel and mixed properties

    RIMC as a value-adding provider of hotel and mixed-use properties: When assessing a property, the investor and capitalised earnings value are always in the foreground.

    As a so-called "operator property", the hotel business is inseparably linked to the property. There is a close relationship between the success of management and the value of the property. The ideal hotel property should have optimal location conditions, be profitable and be in serious and professional hands as an operator property in the long term in order to be economically and above all financially profitable.

    RIMC creates these conditions: By purchasing real estate, e. g. with investor partners, for a long-term commitment or turnaround. In its 30-year history, RIMC has made a name for itself as a turnaround specialist for hotels, from economy to luxury real estate. The key to this strategy is a tailor-made operator contract solution, favourable purchase, repositioning in the market, increase in income and the possible, profitable resale to an exit partner.
