In 1970, Mr. Angelo King (AK), known as the patriarch of the King’s group, noticed how well the motels are doing. Making mathematical computations in his head, AK’s imagination caught re in the prospect of venturing into the motel business. He was bent on entering the business and decided to work on something most motels failed to give their clients QUALITY SERVICE.
It was in August when AK opened his first motel venture in Pasay City. He named it Anito Lodge, after a Tagalog god or deity. The first venture led to another. AK opened his second motel in 1973 and named it Vinta Lodge. It is located in Pasig where a potential market of moteliers is evident. Soon, more motels came under the belt of the King family.
