Meritage Hospitality Group is lead by its CEO Robert E. Schermer Jr. and has been growing year on year, of course as with any hospitality company it has faced its share of challenges during the pandemic. With states opening up the growth prospects for Meritage may begin to open up as well, however inflation worries may still loom. We look forward to featuring Bob Schermer on Money Never Sleeps to discuss Meritage soon.
