Success Stories

Great Companies Grow and Succeed Here

We asked several business leaders in the Rushmore Region: “Why do you like the Rushmore Region? What are the benefits of doing business here?”

Jim Meyer, found of Quarq, a world leader in bycycle technology, said Spearfish is a perfect mix of outdoor fun and business oportunity.

We moved from Michigan to Sturgis, SD in 1995 after looking at several other states. We chose Sturgis, SD because of the friendly Firearms and Ammunition climate and tax structure.

When I was searching for the perfect location to grow our call center I was focused on finding the best people first, Rapid City seemed like the most obvious choice.

In today’s political environment of being over taxed and over regulated, it is a pleasure to operate a business in South Dakota where the state government does everything it can to help you be successful.

I grew up riding the trails here – and I’m staying because riding is still my passion and my business.

I feel very fortunate that I could practice medicine anywhere I choose, but I chose to practice here in Rapid City for numerous reasons...

If someone needs a set of pistons for a vintage 1936 Indian Chief motorcycle, chances are they will be buying it from Jerry Greer’s Engineering in Deadwood, SD.

For Rob Mudge of RPM & Associates, the Rushmore Region is home. Even though almost all of his clients are outside South Dakota, he’s staying here.
