From strawberry seller to hotel king!

Petter A. Stordalen, born in Porsgrunn in Norway, is a Norwegian investor, hotel magnate, property developer and environmental activist. Over 20 years, Stordalen has built up Nordic Choice Hotels from being a hotel threatened with bankruptcy to a group consisting of 170 hotels and five chains with more than 12,000 employees. This incredible journey started in Stordalen’s hometown where, as a 12-year-old, he sold strawberries in the market square. The “strawberry philosophy” originates from his memories of selling strawberries for his father and forms the basis of Stordalen’s business philosophy.
