ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vimana Franchise System's has partnered with Interessant Hospitality to expand their Centerstone and Key West brands.

CEO and Co-Founder Steve Belmonte made the announcement this month that Vimana's unique franchise friendly hotel brands have teamed up with Interessant Hospitality and will now be available to hoteliers in India.

"Our industry is very much a global market and I'm excited to be able to offer our brands to hotel owners in India. Jan Guatam and Interessant Hospitality are perfect partners as they have an established base in India in which to propel our brands," stated Belmonte.

Jan Gautam, President & CEO of Interessant Hospitality began working with Belmonte in 2012 to develop a plan to extend Vimana's reach overseas. With over 20 years of proven success in the hospitality industry, Gautam has big goals for the development of the Vimana brands.

"Over the next three years our goal is to have at least 30 Centerstone/Key West Hotels open and operating. We plan to make the Centerstone and Key West brands a well-known brand throughout India," said Gautam.

There are plans for properties in some of India's major key cities like Mumbai, Delhi and Jairpur as well as many others.

Guatam said, "I have known Steve Belmonte since he was President of Ramada and he has always had a great respect toward his franchisees and has gone above and beyond to help them. He's been persistent in fair franchising and has worked hard in order to accomplish great results for his clients. Now it's time to introduce a fair franchising brand and Steve has done just that. With Vimana Franchise Systems there is up front fairness and no reading between the lines. No other franchise company has offered what Steve has brought to this industry and I am looking forward to working with him in this venture. "

Vimana has several other countries targeted and future announcements are expected to be made later this year.
