Quest launches three properties in two weeks

Hannah Edensor

Quest is back in the spotlight today, swinging the doors open on its new Western Sydney property, the first of 2015.

Quest Serviced Apartments officially opened Quest Liverpool today, kicking off a major pipeline of new property openings in NSW.

Down south, Quest Nowra is next on the timeline, set to open for business from April 30, while Quest’s second Albury property, Quest Albury on Townsend, is following close behind with an opening on May 4.

Quest’s CEO Zed Sanjana has said he is confident in the brand’s aggressive growth strategy.

“Liverpool, Nowra and Albury are perfect examples of how Quest meets the accommodation needs of the corporate market across Australia,” he said.

“All three economies are strong, with a number of major projects underway including the multi-million dollar Kurrajong Road (Liverpool) and Princes Highway (Nowra) upgrades, and the redevelopment of the Albury Art Gallery.”

“The City of Liverpool is thriving, home to 13,600 local and national businesses, with 35,000 new jobs projected by 2036. Economic activity in Nowra and the City of Shoalhaven is doing well and we believe significant investment in the region will continue. Albury is quickly establishing itself as not only a key business centre, but also a cultural destination.”

New franchisees joining the party include Tom Wang at Quest Liverpool and James Blanchett at Quest Nowra, along with Noel and Madeleine Wood and Natasha and Jason Callewaert at Quest Albury on Townsend.

Franchisee of Quest Liverpool, Tom Wang comes to the table off the back of running his own businesses in Canberra for over five years.

“I thank Quest for the opportunity to be a Franchisee and can say with confidence that its high standard of accommodation has been maintained here at Quest Liverpool, ensuring guests will have nothing but the best,” he said.

“Badgerys Creek Airport is underway just 19km away, which will significantly decrease travel time to the area, greatly benefiting the flourishing local business community. We’re also within close proximity to Westfield Shopping Centre and Liverpool Plaza, ensuring our guests are entertained on their downtime.”

James Blanchett had the same strong approach to business down in Nowra.

“Quest’s style of high-quality, extended-stay accommodation perfectly suits the requirements of Australia’s defence force – one of the most prominent industries in the area,” he said.

“Quest Nowra offers the ideal location for both corporate and leisure travellers, just moments from the amenities of Stockland Shopping Centre, numerous restaurants and cafes, and the Nowra Farmers Markets. I look forward to opening our doors next week and can’t wait to fulfill the high standards set by Quest and ensure all our guests have the best “home away from home” experience.”

All locations feature brand new serviced apartments with kitchen and laundry facilities, separate living/dining area, LED Smart TV, Wi-Fi, Foxtel, onsite car parking, gymnasium and conference room facilities.

Guests also enjoy traditional Quest services such as pantry shopping, dry cleaning services, restaurant chargeback, babysitting booking services and business administration.

2015 is set to be an exciting year of growth for Quest across Australasia, with 12 new properties opening in Australia and three in New Zealand. In addition to Liverpool, Nowra and Albury, this includes Newcastle West, Chatswood and Bella Vista (NSW); Kelvin Grove, Toowoomba and Chermside (QLD); Rockingham and West Perth (WA); Maribyrnong (VIC); and Nelson, Taupo and Whangarei (NZ).
