To fill a need in the hospitality market, Craig and Harry Christianson formed ChrisBro Inc. in 1999 with a vision to take their financial experience to create a business model committed to exceptional service. ChrisBro Hospitality is a family run hotel ownership, development and management company.  The company's commitment to highly value people so they excel, drives its innovative business decisions, culture, growth strategy, and is intended to enhance the return on investment and build relationships with guests and associates. Success of ground up development and management is proven in the results of award winning hotels currently owned and managed in South Dakota and Iowa.
