Amar Tailor, CHA graduated in 1992 from the University of Delaware’s Hotel, Restaurant & Institutional Management Program. Amar resides in Middletown, Delaware with his wife Yashica and their son, Ayan.
During his years at the University and after graduating, Amar was involved in operating his family’s motel in New Castle, Delaware, which they’ve owned since 1977. Having grown up around the hospitality industry, Amar decided a formal education in the industry would be the perfect compliment for his years of practical experience. He was the General Manager of the family owned motel from 1992 to 2003.
In April of 2001, Amar purchased two hotels in partnership in Williamsburg, Virginia. He serves as President and Managing Member of those two hotels. In addition to the hospitality business, Amar and his family are also involved in commercial real estate development.
In 2003, Amar purchased a retail liquor store in Dover, Delaware. The liquor store carries a wide variety of fine wine and spirits as well as beers from all over the world. Amar found himself learning a completely new business and continues increasing his knowledge about wines and spirits. The store is the largest in the area and has an increasing customer base due to the growth of Kent County.
Amar is the first Chairman and a founding member of the Hospitality Alumni Association.
