CROWNPOINT, N.M. — Groundbreaking Ceremony held Friday, September 27, 2019 in Crownpoint, New Mexico for the new construction of the Crownpoint Hotel. The Eastern Regional Business Development office (ERBDO) first met with owners John Daugomah and his wife Jackie Curley of CSB Enterprizes, LLC in 2013 to discuss the plans they had for a hotel.
Putting together years of experience and expertise John Largo, of the Eastern Regional Business Development Office, provided technical assistance in this project. Mr. Largo, once an entrepreneur himself, has dedicated 22 years to the Navajo Nation, 16 of them being with the ERBDO.
Working closely with clients, Mr. Largo walked John and Jackie through the process to begin a project such as the Crownpoint hotel. John Largo ensures that his clients are assisted in every step from obtaining land, writing business plans, sourcing funds, to ensuring the business to be registered as a corporation with the nation. A franchise agreement with Choice Hotels dual branded Eastern Navajo’s first native owned hotel and will house Sleep Inn and Mainstay Suites with thirty-six rooms each along with a conference room to host over 100 people.
