At our company, “business succession that spins thoughts and commitment” is one of the pillars of our future business, and this “Ajidokoro Ishu Honjin” will be the first project. On remote islands and across the country, there are many commercial facilities such as restaurants and lodging facilities that are soundly managed but lack successors. While drawing out the owner’s “feelings” and “stickiness” for the operation of such a commercial facility, we carefully hold repeated meetings about what to take over and to what extent. In addition to full management outsourcing, we also offer partial management outsourcing, such as reservation management, sales management, and cleaning management only. As a result, we succeeded seamlessly in the operation, and introduced management methods that create new value in the area while protecting the parts that the owner has cherished. We are willing to contribute.
