POMEROY INN AND SUITES INC. RESUMES CONSTRUCTION ON OLDS PROJECT
In late 2010, the company announced their partnership with one of Alberta’s premiere
educational institutes, Olds College, as they launched a new diverse educational
platform designed to provide learning opportunities in Rural Alberta and to further
their commitment to rural economic development. The Canadian Institute for Rural
Entrepreneurship (CIRE) is a hands-on learning curriculum for credit based and continuing
education students in Country Side Management. This program includes local food
production, alternate land-use management, rural hospitality management, farm fresh
food sales and tourism.
Pomeroy Inn Suites Inc. is contributing to the project by partnering with Olds College,
with the consent of the Ministry of Advanced Education and Technology, to build
a four star Pomeroy Inn & Suites located on five acres of Olds College land south
of Highway 27. The state of the art facility will encompass the brand’s already
successful blue print of extended stay suites, full amenities and service culture,
plus it will also feature full food and beverage services including conference facilities
and a restaurant.
