Hotels And Restaurants Ready For NCAA Championships

December 11, 2013, 9:55 PM by Jared Ransom

Hotels And Restaurants Ready For NCAA Championships
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

It may be a normal night of business at Beef 'O' Brady's, but starting in 2015, business will be picking up on a regular basis thanks to the city hosting several NCAA Division II Championships right across the street at the Sanford Pentagon.

"When we did the design of the building, it was in mind that there would be bigger events happening out here affiliated with both the Pentagon and the Fieldhouse, and so we knew that we would have to accommodate any of the events that they had," Beef 'O' Brady's manager Kibbi McCormick said.

The restaurant won't be the only place seeing a spike in traffic, as the Fairfield Inn and Suites right next door gets set to take in the teams and fans coming from out of town.

"The fact that we got this event definitely means that we'll probably be pretty involved with the events that are occuring right there simply because of our proximity to the Pentagon and the Sanford Sports Complex, so I think it'll be a great thing and that we'll definitely benefit from it and we're very excited," Fairfield Inn and Suites General Mangager Patricia Luna said.

The two businesses have had moments to preview what the championships may be like, with highly-attended basketball games already taking place at the Pentagon.

"On the Skyforce nights, let alone those big nights when we've had the NBA or the college games, come early so you can get in," McCormick said.

The NCAA championships at the Pentagon will only serve to speed up growth by the complex, and that is something both businesses feel will benefit the entire city.

"It would be a good time to get in and get your business established and really become part of a growing area. So, I think that in the future, there's going to be quite a bit happening out there, I think it'll be a totally different landscape, and I think there will be a lot of different and exciting things happening in the future," Luna said.

The restaurant and hotel both are experiencing great business right now, and both are now preparing for what the crowds will be when teams around the country arrive for the NCAA Championships.
