Chamber Business/Entrepreneur of the Month
Comfort Inn - Roy Smith
The 79 room Comfort Inn in Bellefontaine opened for business on August 3rd,
1989. The Chamber of Commerce is happy to recognize their 25 year anniversary
as we honor owner Roy Smith as Entrepreneur of the Month for August.
Over the past 25 years the Comfort Inn has been a mainstay in Logan County,
providing visitors with a place to rest as they go about their local journey. In addition
to a comfortable nights stay, guests can also utilize three meeting rooms, an
outdoor pool and a lounge.
So what do you do to celebrate your 25th anniversary? For Roy
Smith you double down on your investment! The Inn recently
went through an extensive renovation with over $1 million invested
in upgrades. The results are fantastic as guests enjoy
modern amenities at very reasonable room prices.
Mr. Smith is proud of his involvement in the community and the
Chamber, and in addition to the recent renovation, he has also
had an important role in other local projects. Mr. Smith was integral
in the completion of Northview Drive, connecting US 68
with SR 47. Mr. Smith is also a visionary who still sees great potential
for business expansion along Northview Drive. Roy owns the vast majority of land along the road and is actively
looking for people to partner with to develop businesses, including restaurants and other retail establishments. With
prime visibility to US 33 it is an ideal location for development. (READ MORE)
