Hotel Chain Eyes Pulaski County

  A Wisconsin-based hotel chain is considering an expansion into Pulaski County. John F. Seibert with Cobblestone Development says the first step is a feasibility study, which will take a couple of months.

He says there are a number of fairly large businesses within the community that would utilize a hotel if they had one. Currently, Seibert says companies like Plymouth Tube, Braun Corporation, Galfab and Wastequip are sending folks elsewhere in order to accommodate their lodging needs. Seibert anticipates constructing a 36 to 44 room facility, perhaps with a swimming pool and other amenities.

Seibert has expressed his interest in making a formal presentation to the Winamac Town Council during their March 11 meeting. Cobblestone’s first upper mid-scale hotel opened five years ago. To date the company has 21 hotels open, eight under construction and 35 under development in seven states.
