Business model[edit]

Since first opening in 1987, BR Guest President and Founder Stephen Hanson and his staff have emphasized hospitality, style, and accessible cuisine.[according to whom?]

BR Guest's commitment to hospitality is also evident through its dedication of time and resources to community-based organizations including City-Meals-On-Wheels, Memorial Sloan Kettering, Publicolor Board Member, PENCIL, and The James Beard Foundation.[citation needed]

Also in 2007, Hanson inked a partnership deal with Barry Sternlicht, CEO of Starwood Capital Group, as part of its Starwood Opportunity Fund 7. The transaction valued BR Guest at "between $150 million and $200 million." (USD)

In August 2010 BR Guest welcomed Alexandre Gaudelet to the team as its new Chief Operating Officer.
