The Emmaus site will be developed into an 18-room hotel, but details are yet to be forthcoming the timeline on that project. CEO David Hoffman has stated that these investments will create 300 new jobs in the community.

The company has invested heavily in the Augusta region, with an eye to transforming it into a Napa Valley style tourism hotspot. Missouri’s own wine country.

Future plans include a golf course and a 96-foot luxury yacht for cruising and serving wine on the Missouri River.
