Business Model of Oyo Rooms
Oyo Rooms follows an asset-light, technology-driven business model under which it does not own its hospitality real estate. Rather, it partners with hotels under revenue-sharing contracts and sells their rooms under its own brand name on its platform. Since 2017, it has shifted to the franchisee model from the hotel aggregation model under which its hotel partners now operate as franchise and pay commission to Oyo Rooms. Under its new business model, it partners with hotels, and gets them to follow certain basic service standards including flat screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, breakfast, 6-inch shower head, a beverage tray, spotless white bed linen, branded toiletries, and then list their rooms on its portal to sell them under its own brand, earning commission from their revenues. The company audits its hospitality standards frequently to maintain a quality experience for its customers.
