Sioux Falls Business Journal report profiles growing NorthWestern Corp.

Posted: Updated:

Sioux Falls Business Journal editor Jodi Schwan joined us for tonight's KSFY News at 5.

She shared new information on NorthWestern Energy's turnaround and development taking place at the Western Mall.

Ten years ago, NorthWestern Energy was in bankruptcy and today it's valued at more than two billion -- and growing.

Changes in the business culture helped it get back on track, Schwan said.

NorthWestern Energy is based in Sioux Falls, but does most of its business in Montana, so people might not be familiar with the company. But once you learn more about it, you'll see there are some lessons and success strategies that can be applied to many other businesses.

The Business Journal also checked in on development in the Western Mall -- including the progress of the ‘All Day Café' -- that's the newest concept from the restaurant group behind Minervas, Grille 26, the Phillips Avenue Diner and others.

This new one is located in the old Champps spot at the Western Mall. It's going to be two restaurants that will share a kitchen. The first one, the All Day Café, is modeled after a restaurant in Denver. It will serve brunch all day long and has some unique menu items for Sioux Falls. You can see the menus and a video of the inside on the Business Journal website. It will open soon -- sometime the week of Christmas.

And then next door, in January, the same company will add a place called Taphouse 41. The theme there: Burgers, brats and bourbon.

And of course, these are just a start of the changes at the Western Mall. Next spring, Scheels will open its major expansion. And Ashley Furniture is moving to the east side -- it will be replaced at the Western Mall by an expanded South Dakota Furniture Mart and Carpet One.

Ou can pick up the Sioux Falls Business Journal tomorrow on newstands or you can find it online anytime.
