bpc (by peter chase) is a hospitality development and management company whose focus is the creation and operation of restaurants, bars & hotels around the world. Our diverse backgrounds and collective knowledge bring unique vision and operational expertise to every concept.
With an international client list spanning from independent restaurants & bars to luxury hotel and casino operations, bpc has become the resource for innovative hospitality concepts.
Peter brings experience across both luxury and boutique hotels, and corporate and entrepreneurial environments. He formerly worked for Ian Schrager Hotels as Vice President overseeing an international food and beverage portfolio without equal.
Prior to that he worked in restaurant management for Four Seasons Hotels, Bice, Coco Pazzo, Campagne and Aquavit before founding bpc, a company whose primary interests are developing and managing creative hospitality concepts. To date, select developments and clients include the overnight sensation Skybar Miami Beach, the nightlife altering Wunderbar at the W Montreal, as well as, MGM Grand Casinos (MGM, Mandalay Bay, Luxor, Borgata) in Las Vegas, Detroit and Atlantic City, Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, Garden of Ono, and the W San Diego.
Most recently, Peter, together with his partners in Collective Hospitality, conceptualized and opened Millesime at the Carlton hotel in New York City to rave reviews.
Peter holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration where he concentrated in independent restaurant operations and development.
Erin, a graduate of the Cornell School of Hotel Administration, started in development with Ian Schrager working as an analyst on ground-breaking projects including the Hudson, Clift and Miramar Hotels. In 2001, just after September 11th, Erin followed then Chief Financial Officer for Ian Schrager Hotels to Kerzner International Hotels where her work as a Feasibility Analyst included Atlantis in the Bahamas and the burgeoning One & Only brand. After two years with Kerzner, Erin made her way back to New York, joining the Weitzman Group where she worked on commercial and residential projects throughout the United States.
Erin later rejoined Kerzner International, this time based in New York City, as a Senior Feasibility Analyst focusing on a 1,000-room hotel expansion in the Bahamas and a Singapore resort and casino bid. Having completed both projects, Erin left Kerzner to join forces with Peter at bpc and to further seal the relationship the two were wed in August of that same year.
