South Dakota Dept. of Tourism recognizes outstanding businesses

Posted: Updated:

The South Dakota Department of Tourism is recognizing many of South Dakota's visitor industry businesses and organizations for outstanding customer service.

The South Dakota Department of Tourism is awarding 137 South Dakota businesses and organizations in 45 communities with the Great Service Star. The Great Service Star program recognizes businesses that develop and complete hospitality training programs for their staff, recognize and reward employees for providing great service, and find unique ways to show customer appreciation.

"Their commitment to providing great customer service helps build on South Dakota's reputation for having a warm, welcoming, and professional tourism industry," said Jim Hagen, secretary of the South Dakota Department of Tourism. "This continued dedication to customer service brings visitors back to South Dakota year after year."

Hagen said the Great Service Star award and logo are often used by recipients to help market their businesses and demonstrate their continued commitment to customer service.
