Mezzo’s six years journey in the hospitality industry
“Looking back to six years, the pandemic was the most challenging in the whole hospitality landscape, not only in Cebu but globally. Our goal then was staying afloat during those pandemic years and keeping the brand relevant especially in an area saturated with hotels,” Bernardo said.
But something good came out of the pandemic, Bernardo revealed that Mezzo got its ISO certification amid the pandemic. The Hotel served the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) for their quarantine needs and also serving the local residents during the pandemic and Typhoon Odette where the Hotel continued to engage with the local community for various assistance.
The Tan family, the proud family behind Mezzo Hotel, are all smiles as they celebrate Mezzo’s 6th Anniversary with their associates, partners, and clients.
“The hard work and the team work of the management to continue operations while catering to the needs of the guests is truly admirable,” Bernardo gushed.
The immense support of everyone in the team to contribute and together, work on the company’s vision and loyal clientele contributed to these good times now where Mezzo continue its operation which was better than the last two years, but still not past the pre-pandemic levels, Bernardo noted.
Mezzo Hotel’s General Manager, Christine Bernardo, and President, Shannen Tan, have been the guiding force behind the hotel’s continued success. As they meet with representatives from various media outlets, they express their gratitude to the associates, partners, and clients who have made Mezzo Hotel a premier destination for travel, cuisine, and hospitality.
Gathered together in celebration of Mezzo Hotel’s 6th Anniversary are Mezzo Hotel General Manager, Christine Bernardo, and Mezzo Hotel President, Shannen Tan, with some of the pillars of Cebuano media: Nelia Neri, Milagros Espina, and Chinggay Utzurrum from Sunstar, and Honey Jarque Loop from the Daily Tribune.
Mezzo is very optimistic that it will be able to go back to the pre-pandemic level in the near future, Bernardo added that the hotel continues to learn from its current operations and if there is an opportunity to expand, why not?
The lessons learned from six years, hopefully these eventually support and guide Mezzo in its expansion plans and to achieve an ISO re-certification, putting emphasis on Mezzo’s 4-Pillars: by promoting its Corporate Shared Values for the Community; improving employees benefits as Associates; renovations and improvements for the Structure and to continuously improve the guests’ experiences with Mezzo, Bernardo concluded.
