CEO Charlie Bosselman describes planned features of the former Skagway building Wednesday after Bosselman Companies announced it was moving its headquarters.

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. — Bosselman Companies will move its corporate headquarters as part of a three-phase project that may total $20 million, Chief Executive Officer Charlie Bosselman announced Wednesday.

The headquarters will move to a former Skagway building at 1607 S. Locust St. in Grand Island.

The property will be overhauled into office space for more than 100 administrative and executive personnel, Bosselman said.

In addition to office space, the headquarters will include a mini convenience store, meeting rooms, collaborative spaces, cafeteria, locker rooms, atrium, company history exhibits and a warehouse, according to plans.

Other current retail spaces attached to the building will remain, including a liquor store, mattress store and financial services.

The company is buying the property from a Chicago-based owner. The purchase is contingent upon the company obtaining tax-increment financing, Bosselman said.

The Bosselman Companies own and operate 49 Pump & Pantry convenience stores; 44 Boss Shops; the Bosselman Travel Center; a Hampton Inn, three Pump & Pantry Motels, one Quality Inn & Suites, one Comfort Inn & Suites, and six Motel 6 franchises.

The corporation also owns a Quaker Steak & Lube, three Grandma Max’s/Max’s Highway Diner Restaurants, Sam Bass’ Saloon & Steakhouse, food courts including Subway, Little Caesars, Caribou Coffee, and Cinnabon Bakeries; and the Nebraska Danger Indoor Professional Football Team.
