Why Hausse Hospitality?


Hausse Hospitality works with clients who have existing hospitality businesses, or are looking to develop new hospitality projects, in traditionally overlooked and undeveloped African markets.

We are passionate about the development and sustained growth of the lodging, restaurant, travel and leisure industries in Africa, specifically in Nigeria and other West African markets. We believe in focusing on what the market actually needs and what will ultimately serve long term investment goals. We embrace and utilize the concepts of critical thinking, problem-solving, and creative open-mindedness to help our clients reach their goals.

Hausse Hospitality works out of Lagos, Nigeria and New York, USA. We are seasoned hospitality professionals who have industry experience from global hotel firms, hotel investment companies, and, W Hospitality Group, a leading Africa-based hospitality consulting firm.
