HistoryEdit

In mid-2003, Harry Tan (陈嘉财; Chén Jiācái) and his two brothers, David Tan (陈嘉寿; Chén Jiāshòu) and Ted Fang (方庆文; Fāng Qìngwén) started Frontier Group with was backed by Tera Capital to acquired the master franchise of Days Inn for Greater China. They felt that there was a lack of mid-tier or economy hotels in China. Most of the hotels were either luxury or budget hotels. There was also a growing affluence in China's middle class. With that in mind, they got in touch with Cendant Corporation (now known as Wyndham Worldwide) and managed to secure the master franchise for Greater China. Since inception in 2004,[1] Days Inn China has become one of the fastest-growing mid-tier hotel chains in China, with a total of 140 projects and more than 20,000 rooms spanning 80 cities and 22 provinces across China by the end of 2013.[2]
