THE OFFICIAL opening of Griffith’s newest high-rise accomodation complex has added to the city’s growing tourism industry, according to Mayor John Dal Broi.
Griffith City Council Mayor John Dal Broi and former Australian Rugby League player, Simon Bonetti joined Quest Chief Financial Officer, Jason Vanderzalm to officially open the apartment-style hotel last week.
Mr Dal Broi welcomed Quest’s investment in Griffith and said it was an endorsement of the region’s growing tourism industry.
"Griffith City Council warmly welcomes the establishment of Quest Apartment Hotels in Griffith,” Cr Dal Broi said.
“The council has been working hard to attract new businesses and industries to the city and Quest's investment highlights that Griffith is a growing regional centre.
“Quest Griffith is an important asset to the already outstanding services and facilities on offer in our City,”
Quest Griffith Franchisees, Fleur and Josh Nadzielski, expressed their excitement and eagerness to get down to business, and immerse themselves in the community they now call home.
“The economic growth experienced in Griffith has been strong, and Quest Griffith is well positioned to capitalise on exciting developments occurring within the region,” Mr Nadzielski, said.
“The opening of Quest Griffith has been warmly welcomed and embraced by the community and businesses alike.
“We look forward to continue supporting the growth and future of this thriving regional town.”
Quest officials and Cr Dal Broi agreed the opening comes during an exciting period of expansion for Griffith.
They believe the opening further established the city as a hive of activity beyond tourism including development in agriculture, wine, food processing, retail, transport, professional services and tourism.
But the future of Griffith tourism is what Quest Chief Financial Officer, Jason Vanderzalm is what company hedged its bets on making the decision to open a property in the city.
