Harry G Spirides

Company Founder and President Harry G. Spirides is a former owner and operator of a 205-room, full-service, beachfront resort hotel for over 20 years.  The story of his family’s contribution to the United States hospitality industry is a remarkable one.  Not only have they owned, operated, developed, and advised hotels and restaurants for over 100 years–since the 1920s, but they also played a vital role in launching the hospitality industry careers of two of the industry’s biggest titans Cecil B. Day, founder of Days Inns and Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy’s Hamburger Restaurant chain.  The Spirides family chronology is outlined below.
