OMG OMG OMG! I have just met the most a-mah-zing two people to come out of Houston since Beyonce and Kelly Rowland. Who is this dynamic duo? Its Baker and Justin, founders of Gold-Inn Hospitality, duh!
Let me set the scene for you. Its a sweltering hot June day in Winston Salem, there’s no parking at the downtown coffee spot I picked for us to meet, and I’m running late. All of this results in your boy sweating profusely during our initial hello. Thankfully, the Gold-Inn boys were beyond gracious, even when I had to excuse myself to wipe off my face in the bathroom. Once my pores finally closed I was able to sit back and get my chat on with these brilliant, sweet, and totes ADORBS guys.
Not only are Baker and Justin business partners, but they have also been married for just over two years – having met while studying hospitality at the University of Houston. These guys have worked in the tip top hotels of New York. Can you say LUXURY!? It was during a quick vacation in Natchez, Mississippi where the idea for Gold-Inn Hospitality was first sparked. Baker and Justin explained that in the hospitality industry you are either 100% on or 100% off, and it is super difficult for owners and operators of inns to take extended periods of time off. Hence, INTERIM INN KEEPING!!!!!
