Hofbräuhaus developers hit snags in Arkansas project

On April 5 a Jonesboro, AR, city commission discussed the delays and "red flags" on the Keller family's Hyatt Place hotel and convention center project there. Jonesboro agreed to give Chris Keller's company $300,000 for marketing and up to $200,000 in hotel sales tax rebates over three years. The Keller family also has proposed a Hyatt Place hotel in Belleville, IL next to the Hofbräuhaus under construction near St. Louis, MO, in southern Illinois.
