This will be the companies' first stake in property in Sioux City. The president of the company says improvements will come, but not to expect many sweeping changes in the near future. "One of the things we are required to do by the brand is come in and refresh the property," said Paul Hegg, president of Hegg Companies, Inc. "That's just something that they require that we do."
The deal included ownership of Bev's on the River, the attached marina and the outside tiki bar, Jolly Roger's. Just like renovations, Hegg tells KTIV there shouldn't be much job turnover when proprietary rights change hands. "From what we can tell, from the time we've been there, there's an excellent staff in place so we don't want to rock that boat at all," he added.
In terms of future plans, Hegg says, at the hotel, they're restricted on what they can do by the brand. Hegg says the company also manages hotels in Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska, as well as Sioux Falls. June 13 is when Hegg Companies, Inc. will take full control.
A Sioux Falls-based real estate company has agreed to buy Sioux City's Hilton Garden Inn, Bev's On The River restaurant and the nearby marina.
Starting June 13th the property, along the Missouri River, will be owned by Hegg Companies, and managed by Hegg Hospitality.
The company promises no major changes to the property in the near future.
A spokesperson says the current staff will stay in place to operate what the company describes as "the premier hospitality property in Sioux City". "From what we can tell, from the time we've been there, there's an excellent staff in place so we don't want to rock that boat at all," said Paul Hegg, president of Hegg Companies.
Brothers Larry and Roger Miller bought the marina in 2003. Bev's On The River opened in 2005. The hotel followed in 2008.
This will be Hegg Companies first stake in property in Sioux City.
