Company History

ShoreRock Group LLC can trace its origins as a family business back to 1981, when Kishor Ghelani, decided to construct a brand new Econolodge in the Atlantic City, NJ area. His original vision was to provide guests with modern accommodations and excellent service at a reasonable price. The hotel was an instant success and led to additional properties.

Kishor went on to develop, own, or operate over 25 commercial properties through a half-dozen real estate cycles. He often leveraged his engineering expertise to vertically integrate the role of owner, engineer, construction manager, and operator. Even to this day, the vertically integrated "design-build-own-operate" model remains a key element of our business.

In 2007, Cannon Ghelani joined the company full-time and set a new strategic direction to expand its managed portfolio. After developing a proprietary hospitality management platform, the company began to assemble a top-tier hospitality management team.

In 2011 the company was incorporated in North Carolina as ShoreRock Group LLC.
