It is truly amazing how quickly time has flown! We only established our company on March 28th 2014 and at 6 months we have managed to double our stock every 2 months to grow rapidly into the serviced apartment company we are today. Though still relatively small we’ve put processes in place and streamlined our operations to enable us to grow further in the London market over the next 6 months. The apartments we’ve taken on have all been centered around Liverpool Street, but only in the past few weeks we managed to secure our first serviced apartment at Old Street roundabout. This is a great location because of its proximity to The City as well as the nightlife of trendy Shoreditch. An absolutely perfect spot to continue our rapid expansion!
Over the past 6 months we’ve grown up a lot here at Urban Stay. We’ve improved everything from our operational capabilities to our marketing, our sales, and even our consistently superlative customer service. As we take on new properties we are mindful of their quality, location, size, and proximity to our other units. Every decision we’ve taken over the past 6 months has been carefully considered in the wider context of our London serviced apartment operation. Thus far, we’re proud and excited to say it seems to be a strategy that is working.
What will the next 6 months bring? We have some ideas, but we’re quite conservative in our expansion plans and are only going as fast as the short-stay accommodation business will allow. When we celebrate our 1 year anniversary we’re confident however that in these first formative 6 months have set us on the right track and have laid the foundation of the successful serviced apartment company we are on our way to becoming!!
