Hmshost international an overview


The company's origins are in the Van Noy Railway News and Hotel Company founded in 1897 by the Van Noy Brothers of Kansas City, Missouri.

On January 2, 1996, Host Marriott Services Corporation was created when Host Marriott Corporation divided into two separate companies. Host Marriott continued to own lodging real estate. Host Marriott Services Corporation held and operates concessions at airports, at rest stops on toll roads and freeways and at sports and entertainment attractions. Autogrill S.p.A. acquired the company in 1999, creating HMSHost.

Along the way, the company grew through its many acquisitions. It found itself with airport contracts in 18 of the 20 largest airports in the United States. Through Kilmer Host Service Centres, a joint venture with the Canadian company Kilmer van Nostrand, HMSHost is also a partner in ONroute service centres in the Canadian province of Ontario.
