BPR Properties was founded in 1983, with the purchase of our first property: a smoke shop in Staten Island, New York. After selling the smoke shop the following year, we purchased a hot dog stand (at a local flea market) and a convenience store in New Jersey. In 1986, we purchased our first motel: a 48-room Econo Lodge in Asheboro, North Carolina. Since our humble beginnings, BPR Properties has acquired and developed more than 35 hotels, developed nearly 1500 acres in commercial and residential real estate, and grown into the sophisticated company that it is today. Our mission simply put is “To Be Great”. We strive for Greatness in everything that we do: • Great Community Stewards – We believe in being responsible and caring for our communities and neighbors.
