Local Businesses Excited For Events Center

Local Businesses Excited For Events Center
SIOUX FALLS, SD - The Events Center will not only have an impact on the neighborhood, but on local businesses as well.

"I think it'll be better for all of us," Rosie's Café owner Rosie Warner said.

Rosie's has been known for it's homey atmosphere for more than two decades.

"I've had loyal customers from the first day I came in here and we're just one big happy family," Warner said.

And while some renovations are taking place right now, Warner believes a new clientele working on a project of their own can join her already growing family.

"We're hoping to see some of the construction workers that'll come by and see us," Warner said.

"I'm happy for it," Shooter's Pub owner Dennis Johnson said. "I think it'll be good for the community."

Shooter's Pub, just down the street from Rosie's, has also established itself within the area. And Johnson believes a new events center can add more to the local flare.

"We're a local neighborhood," Johnson said. "It'll bring in new customers to the area that normally don't come into this area, so it'll help that side of it." 

It's not just local restaurants and bars that'll benefit from the events center when it's built in 2014. Hotel chains also expect an increase in customers.

"It'll be huge," Ramada Inn General Manager Jean Hoesing said. "More people will be attending the event, they'll be eating in my restaurant here at Castaway's, they'll be staying at my hotel and it's just exciting to see all that activity come to Sioux Falls."

Hoesing says the thousands of extra visitors will only help her hotel and the surrounding area.

"It's going to fill the town up," Hoesing said. "An event like that, even with people from an hour away are going to stay overnight, they're going to shop at the mall, they're going to eat at restaurants, they're going to buy gas. It's going to help the whole city."

Hoesing says her hotel's already full on most days, so there have been some talks on expanding the space and number of rooms at the Ramada in order to accommodate the potential for increased traffic.
