UK’s first ‘Chief Buffet Officer’ will review breakfast buffets from across the world

A buffet breakfast is one of the things Brits look forward to when enjoying their vacation and now Hotels.com is officially hiring for the first ever ‘Chief Buffet Officer’, offering breakfast-lovers the opportunity to review hotel buffets around the world.

BEmma Tagg, Head of Global & EMEA Brand Communications at Hotels.com Brand said: “Hotel breakfast buffets are back and we know the nation can’t wait to flock to the pancake stacks and conveyor belt toasters.

“Nothing says hotel life more than an endless supply of all your favourite breakfast delights and we’re thrilled to be on the lookout for the first ever ‘Chief Buffet Officer’ to review hotel buffet breakfasts around the world and the lucky applicant will even be upgraded to Gold status on our Hotels.com Rewards program.”

The new ‘Chief Buffet Officer’ will enjoy 10 hotel nights worth £5,000 and indulge in breakfast feasts.

From chocolate fountains to ham and cheese rooms, the world’s best hotel buffets make the usual breakfast-in-bed look boring.

The competition came about on the back of research, which showed 76% of Brits can’t wait to guzzle their way through the breakfast buffet once restrictions have fully eased. The research shed light on the breakfast habits of Brits and their love for the morning breakfast buffet.

Two thirds raced the clock to get the best morning selection and 15% have even admitted they’d give up sex for a month for a breakfast buffet bonanza.

The lucky winner will receive 10 hotel nights worth £5,000 to review delicious hotel buffets when they return. They’ll also be upgraded to Gold status on the Hotels.com Rewards program and get free breakfast and room upgrades at select hotels when they travel.
