Beginning Monday, July 3, and running through National First Responder's Day on Saturday, Oct. 28, LaMar's Donuts will hand out one free small coffee and one free donut with a hole every Monday to each first responder visiting a LaMar's location. LaMar's "First Responder Mondays" promotion pays homage to a decades-long tradition of Ray LaMar's charitable spirit and community involvement.

LaMar's Donuts dates back 90 years to 1933, when 17-year-old Ray Lamar began hand-making donuts with the best ingredients available. In 1960, Ray opened a donut shop in Kansas City in a converted gas station. He made the donuts by hand, mixing, rolling, cutting, and deep-frying them himself. At the end of each day, Ray donated any leftover donuts to nonprofit organizations such as churches and homeless shelters in the Kansas City community.

Today, the spirit of Ray's philanthropy lives on in the 25 LaMar's Donuts locations across Colorado, Arizona, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska. 

"LaMar's Donuts is thrilled to be continuing a decades-old tradition of giving back to the community through our First Responder Mondays promotion," said Temi Osifodunrin, LaMar's director of marketing and advertising. "They work tirelessly daily to ensure our communities are safe and healthy. They deserve to be rewarded."

LaMar's Donuts encourages firefighters, police officers, and healthcare workers to stop at any location every Monday starting July 3 to fuel up for the week ahead. To receive a free small coffee and donut with a hole, each first responder may simply present an official badge from the responder's place of employment.

About LaMar's Donuts - After developing his original donut recipe as a teenager in 1933, Ray Lamar opened the first LaMar's Donuts in Kansas City, Missouri, on Linwood Boulevard in a converted gas station. Today, the franchised chain has 25 stores in five states. LaMar's has won numerous awards and has earned favorable reviews by such publications as The New Yorker and Gourmet magazine. LaMar's donuts were also the first to be reviewed and acclaimed by Zagat, the world's most trusted guide to restaurants. Visit us at LaMars.com.

OTA Insight’s Mid-Year 2023 Report Reveals Robust Hotel Pricing Trends Amidst Shifting Global Dynamics

OTA Insight’s Mid-Year 2023 Report Reveals Robust Hotel Pricing Trends Amidst Shifting Global Dynamics

Report details regional differences in pricing trends

OTA Insight, the global leader in cloud-based business intelligence, today released its mid-year report on the state of global hotel pricing. The report provides a comprehensive overview of global hotel room rates in H1 2023, revealing industry trends and setting the stage for the remainder of the year.

Key findings of the report show resilient consumer spending on travel despite tightening household budgets and economic headwinds. A notable rebound in the Average Daily Rate (ADR) for the global hotel industry has been observed, with room prices exceeding pre-pandemic levels in Europe and comfortably above 2019 levels in North America.

Europe: High Demand for Short-Term Rentals and Sunny Destinations

Short-term rentals in Europe have seen high demand, recording a consistent 2%+ month-on-month growth rate in 2023. Meanwhile, a sunny forecast is in sight for Southern European destinations such as Algarve, Ibiza, Santorini, and Benidorm, as they record high room rate growth in H2 2023, indicating a strong summer season ahead.

Asia: A Beacon of Growth

The report paints an encouraging picture for Asia, which has recovered strongly with advertised prices 19% higher in H2 2023 compared to H2 2022. Popular tourist destinations in Japan, Thailand, and Indonesia are witnessing a resurgence as the region steadily gains ground.

North America: Signs of Slowing Growth

While room prices in North America remain above pre-pandemic levels, the region shows signs of slowing growth, potentially due to rapidly increasing interest rates and declining real incomes. Thirteen of the bottom 20 performers for room price growth from H1 to H2 2023 were located in the US, including previously strong vacation destinations in Florida and Mexico.

The report serves as a crucial resource for hoteliers and the wider hospitality industry, offering in-depth insights and market trends to support strategic decision-making.

Looking Ahead

As we enter the second half of 2023, global travel demand continues to grow, at varying rates across regions. While North America may be experiencing a slowing of momentum, Europe and Asia-Pacific seem set for sustained growth.

The global desire for travel and tourism remains strong, with a clear trend towards trusted, established leisure destinations. However, economic factors could pose challenges in 2024, potentially leading to a moderation in travel spend and a slower rate of price increases in the hotel industry.

CAMPING DESTINATION
