hi, hoteliers can possibly guide me about HOUSEKEEPING PRE-OPENING a hotel & resorts steps (Operational & Zero Based) with necessary formats to develop budgets.

Hi, @enchantedmountain20 the operating budget in housekeeping are those costs the housekeeping department will incur in order to generate revenue in the normal course of doing business. As in any department the major operating expense is the employee salaries and wages.

Regarding housekeeping operational budgeting you will need to consider the below expenses.

  • Salaries and Wages
  • Employee Benefits
  • Contract Services
  • Laundry and Dry Cleaning
  • Linen
  • Operating Supplies
  • Guest Supplies
  • Guest Amenities
  • Staff Uniforms
  • Other Expenses

Hope this helps to prepare your budget for the housekeeping department.
