Bird Dog actively manages a growing portfolio of hotels and hospitality investments across the Midwest. We like to run our own independent brands, including the EverSpring Inn & Suites and The Prairie Club, but our portfolio also includes franchised brands like Best Western and Holiday Inn Express.
Bird Dog has led a variety of private equity investments dating back to our founding in 2010, with a focus on manufacturing and product-related businesses. Our approach is centered on backing people we know and trust with compelling opportunities in their sweet spot.
