Back in August, Derek and Stephanie Boulton purchased the Sodbuster Inn Bed & Breakfast. They decided to purchase the Sodbuster in order to personally invest and jointly manage an entrepreneurial enterprise. The Boulton family has had the privilege to live and work all around the world and now they are able to bring those experiences to Greeley, Colorado.

While working with the Northeast East Central Colorado SBDC Derek and Stephanie were able to identify a niche market. The Sod Buster Inn is the only premium Bed & Breakfast establishment in the down town area of Greeley. It has unique and stunning architecture to impress Greeley visitors and focuses on providing a high quality yet value for your money lodging experience. Their customer focus is on the University of Northern Colorado’s medical, legal, and other high profile visitors.

Derek and Stephanie worked with the NEECCO SBDC to make their dream a reality.

“The NEECCO SBDC has been valuable and key to supporting our acquisition valuation, business planning, and introduction to specialist external agencies including legal, banking, accounting, insurance, transportation, etc. As newcomers to private enterprise in both the USA and Colorado the NEECCO SBDC has made our acquisition process both focused and effective.”

The SBDC assisted the Boulton’s in the process of writing a business plan, specializing marketing of The Sodbuster Inn, obtaining necessary funding, and networking in the community to get them up and running as quickly as possible. The transformation of a country bed & breakfast to a modern chic bed & breakfast has been a great journey for all of Greeley to enjoy.
