LOS ANGELES, CA – December 4, 2008 - Vagabond Inn commemorated its 50th year of operations in the hospitality industry by hosting an event on November 20th at its very first hotel, located in Chula Vista, CA.

With a Mexican theme that included a Mariachi Band, Mexican cuisine and Margaritas, the guest list included corporate staff, Vagabond Inn franchisees and hotel managers including the owners of the Chula Vista franchise (Savitaben Patel, Vyomesh Patel, Joy and Ajay Sarolia) as well as members of the San Diego Convention and Visitors Bureau, and tour and travel operators.  The cocktail reception was held on the spacious grounds at the beautifully landscaped pool area of the hotel, and featured a tour of the recently renovated guest rooms.  The owners were presented with a commemorative plaque recognizing the hotel’s historical success.

Bruce Weitzman, President & CEO of Vagabond Franchise System, Inc. said, “We are honored to be among a short list of companies in our industry to have operated for 50 years and are especially heartened to enjoy continuing success in recent times.”

Starting from the single Chula Vista location back in 1958, new Vagabond Inns were built and opened, first in other parts of San Diego County, then throughout California and other western states.  With locations serving the major metropolitan areas on the West Coast, the chain sought to expand and develop locations in other high-demand destinations.  With a strong franchise system in place to facilitate growth, recent additions include properties in San Francisco and soon-to-come locations in the Monterey Bay and wine country regions of Northern California.
