Since its inception in 2012 by the visionary Saurabh Abrol, Le Malt Hospitality Group has become a distinguished entity with its portfolio of celebrated brands stretching across New Jersey and New York. Alongside Le Malt Lounge, Le Malt Royale, and Wine Chateau, the group proudly announces its latest ventures: the exclusive members-only club, Le Malt Imperiale in Staten Island NY, and the innovative Meximodo in Metuchen NJ, with a second venue poised for a grand opening in Jersey City by 2025.

Saurabh Abrol, the CEO of Le Malt Hospitality Group, epitomizes the American Dream; he transitioned from humble beginnings to distinguish himself as a towering figure within the hospitality industry. Drawing strength and perseverance from his first-generation immigrant roots, Abrol developed a multi-million-dollar empire over the past two decades and is now aiming to exceed the billion-dollar mark.

Abrol’s journey in the hospitality industry was inspired by his father, initially professionalizing in wholesale business, and using that foundation to establish Le Malt Hospitality Group in 2012. Today, Le Malt boasts a portfolio of acclaimed establishments, including Le Malt Lounge, Meximodo in Metuchen NJ, and its flagship, Wine Chateau, which offers an extensive collection of over 17,000 premium wines. More recently, Abrol’s dedication continues with the latest openings: Le Malt Imperiale, an exclusive members-only club in Staten Island, and the development of a second Meximodo location in Jersey City, which is scheduled to open next year.

Rewriting the Rules of Success

Saurabh Abrol’s remarkable journey through the hospitality industry has been shaped by his perseverance and innovative strategies, setting him apart in a field fraught with stiff competition and fluctuating market dynamics. He has adeptly steered through challenges like staffing issues, variable food costs, and changing consumer preferences, leveraging these hurdles as catalysts for growth and ingenuity. “Attracting patrons requires distinguishing your establishment with a robust value proposition and unparalleled customer service,” Abrol states, encapsulating his philosophy towards building a successful business. This mindset has not only directed his path to success but has also secured him accolades such as the Outstanding 50 Asian Americans in Business Award, the Market Watch Leaders Award, and the honorable Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of The Year Award.

At the heart of his success is a commitment to people—both in building strong team structures and in providing unparalleled customer experiences. To Abrol, people are the heartbeat of any business. By fostering a culture that prioritizes people both within the organization and the customers they serve, Abrol underscores the intrinsic value of human connections in driving business forward.
