CULLMAN, Ala. – A groundbreaking ceremony for Cobblestone Hotel and Suites in Cullman will take place Tuesday, Aug. 30. The hotel will be built at 1835 Main Ave. SW and will be Cobblestone’s first location in Alabama. Construction should take 12-15 months.
The 63-room hotel is the hospitality brand’s Main Street prototype and includes a Wissota Chophouse that will feature local and regional beers and high-quality steaks.
“Cobblestone Hotels is very excited to break ground on the first Cobblestone Hotel and Wissota Chophouse in Alabama,” said Jeremy Griesbach, president of Cobblestone Hotels. “The location near downtown Cullman positions us to be part of the community and will give our guests the opportunity to take advantage of all that downtown Cullman has to offer.”
Retail Specialists represents Cobblestone in its expansion in Alabama and other parts of the Southeast by identifying markets and specific locations within those markets. Retail Specialists was instrumental in locating the selected site and helped Cobblestone navigate incentives with the City of Cullman.
“We have a long history with Jeremy and the Cobblestone Hotels team,” said Jeff Rouzie, associate at Retail Specialists. “Breaking ground in Cullman is the first of many we’ll see in the Southeast. We have relationships with municipalities throughout the region and strive to help create a positive economic impact by increasing revenues through sales tax, hotel tax and jobs.”
