Centerstone Opens Second Hotel In 2013

Canton, MO- January 29, 2013- Following their announcement of a new property in Iowa, Centerstone has announced their second hotel opening this year with a Centerstone Inn in Canton, MO with a grand opening date of February 1, 2013.

The 60-room Centerstone Inn continues to be owned by Eagle Ridge Hospitalities, LLC and is located at 1701 Oak Street in Canton, MO – Jct US 61 & Route P.

"Choosing to become a Centerstone was an easy decision for us because they are quite simply, the most franchise friendly brand available. Not only that, but the level of personal and professional support they give you is just unlike any other brand out there," said Bob Rehm Sr., Managing Member of Eagle Ridge Hospitalities.

Canton is home to Culver-Stockton College and the Centerstone Inn is centrally located just minutes from several big area attractions like Mark Twain Casino, Lock& Dam #20 with a new levee view-walk, and the Canton Ferry. Canton is located on the banks of the Mississippi River providing many other recreational activities and a great view of bald eagles during the winter months. There are also several challenging golf courses in the area. Hotel amenities include a heated indoor pool & hot tub, free hot breakfast, fitness center and game room.

"We are thrilled to have this property in our system. Not only is it a beautiful hotel but it is also in an awesome location where there is a ton to do. Our continued growth is because of our franchise friendly model featuring the best deal terms in the industry coupled with a great reservations system and revenue generating programs," said Steve Belmonte, CEO of Centerstone's Vimana Franchise Systems.

Centerstone plans to announce the opening of 2-3 more properties by the end of February2013.
