The company remains a family run business based in Steinbach Manitoba with hotels in Winnipeg, Steinbach and Winkler. The hotels are operated by their son, Justin and construction operated by their son, Evan. The team’s mission is genuine care. We truly believe that if we genuinely care for our team members and co-workers; they will genuinely care for our clients, which will eventually lead to profits. We fully recognize that this is a lofty goal that will be continuously worked on throughout our lives.
One area that we show our genuine care is through actively giving back to the communities we are lucky to be in. We do this through washing over 25,000 coats for the Koats for Kids program the last few years, working with local charities such The Bethesda Foundation and many more. Each hotel actively gives back to the community that we are located in.
We enjoy every day that we get to come to work and look forward to working with you.
