New Leaf Hospitality, Inc. and New Leaf Development was founded in 2010 by Brett & Trisha Erdmann and essentially began with the conception to construct two upper tiered hotel projects (an extended-stay full service hotel and a select service hotel) unlike anything that existed prior in Western North Dakota. The construction of Teddy's Residential Suites and Little Missouri Inn & Suites began in 2012. The doors opened in 2013 in Watford City, ND in the heart of the booming infamous Bakken energy and oil rich region. Simultaneously, New Leaf Development, entitled, conceived and initiated the development of Hampton Inn & Suites in Bismarck, ND, which opened in early 2013 as well. The two independent hotels set a new standard and level of quality and service in the market. Marriott, Hilton, Best Western, Wyndham and IHG representations have all expressed sincere praise about the quality and management of the brands. Several franchise companies have been aggressive with their wishes to convert these properties to one of their respective brands.
In early 2014, New Leaf Hospitality worked with Graham Development to open two Main Stay Suites by Choice hotels in Tioga, ND and Stanley, ND which opened November 2014 and November 2015 respectively.
With six openings in five years under their belt, New Leaf began focusing on growth via third party management contracts. Most recently the company signed a management contract with the Souris Valley Suites in Minot, ND. New Leaf Hospitality currently operates five higher-end extended stay hotels, two select service properties and five restaurant/lounges. Negotiations are in place to pick up four franchised hotels including Hilton, IHG and La Quinta brands.
New Leaf Hospitality is focused on providing the finest hotel and hospitality management services to our owners and investors while building the very best properties in the markets we define. The future is bright and only the best employees, brands, partners, investors and markets wanted.
