Today, Aloft Hotels announces the U.S. launch of the brand's revitalized Re:fuel by Aloft food & beverage program, with an industry-leading innovative new breakfast format that promises to fundamentally change the way guests experience the most important meal of the day at Aloft Hotels.

The refresh, developed in response to consumer needs and global food trends, includes the creation of 13 portable breakfast pots, which can be purchased at the 90+ Aloft Hotels in the United States, with plans to roll the program out at Aloft Hotels worldwide. Featuring on-trend food items such as freshly poached eggs, avocado and quinoa, as well as perennial foodie favorites such as lemon ricotta pancakes, sweet potato hash and cheddar grits, the new Re:fuel breakfast pots are designed to give Aloft's forward-thinking guests a balanced and fresh breakfast to enjoy on-the-go.

"Most Aloft Hotels don't have a full-service restaurant on-site, so we came up with this non-traditional approach to ensure our guests can still enjoy a hot, made-to-order breakfast before they leave for the day," said Bridget Higgins, Global Brand Director, Aloft Hotels. "Aloft Hotel guests are always ahead of the curve, and with foodie culture becoming more and more prevalent, we wanted to offer them something that felt relevant to them. The Re:fuel breakfast pots provide guests with a quick and easy way to get a fresh breakfast before a day of meetings or sight-seeing, all in a stylish, fun container that they can take with them on the go."

Innovative digital kiosks, not seen before in the hospitality industry, will be at the heart of the revitalized Re:fuel by Aloft program. Guests will place their order through kiosks, and their selection will be custom-made just for them. Each pot is labelled with its own unique and whimsical avatar sticker which also denotes the time the pot was created.

The 13 varieties of the Re:fuel breakfast pots put a new and innovative twist on much-loved breakfast menu items, allowing Aloft's self-expresser guests to choose a breakfast to suit their style. The exciting new U.S. Re: fuel breakfast pots menu, which includes sweet, savory and vegetarian options includes:

The Original: seasoned fries, poached egg, cheese sauce, bacon and scallion

The Ranchero: black bean salsa, tortilla chips, avocado, lime sour cream, poached egg, cilantro, grape tomato and salsa

The Protein: quinoa, mushrooms, kale, basil, grape tomato, turkey sausage, poached egg, lemon vinaigrette, salt and pepper

The Southern: cheddar grits, chicken pieces, sriracha honey, poached egg, honey and scallion

The Sweet: mini pancakes, assorted berries, granola, maple syrup, mint leaves and lemon ricotta

The Berry: overnight oat base, yogurt, fresh berries, granola, honey and mint leaves

The Brunch: French toast sticks, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, icing, powdered sugar and mint leaves

All the savory pots have a freshly poached egg as the base of the recipe.

Currently, the Pots are only available in Aloft's U.S. properties, but the refreshed Re:fuel concept will be rolled out to Aloft Hotels in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa in the future, where the program will be adapted to suit local cuisines and trends.

In addition to the pots, the new Re:fuel program includes a shakeup of the grab and go retail offering at Aloft's properties, with an increased focus on fun, balanced, natural and locally inspired items. Products on offer at the Re:fuel grab and go will include Chameleon Cold Brew Coffee, Buddha Bowl Himalayan Salt Popcorn, Graze snack packs and Fairytale Fruit Gourmet Gum.
