About Dakota Legacy Group

Dakota Legacy Group was established In January 2016, and is proud to have a team of leaders with over a century of collective Hospitality Industry experience. All founding members are from the greater Fargo-Moorhead metropolitan area.

Gary Tharaldson, a founder of Dakota Legacy Group, was a pioneer of hotel development and his inspired business model has now become the industry standard. Rick Larson and Lori Kasowski have dedicated over 25 years each helping to build what has now become a company that is unparalleled in the industry.

We believe that bringing great people together will create greatness, and the rest of our leadership is a testament to that belief. Jeff McKay has spent the last 12 years leading the development team and his knowledge of hotel construction is invaluable. Gregg Larson brings in-depth trade experience as a co-owner of a building supply company, a real-estate developer, and a home builder.

Dakota Legacy Group is proud to have many other team members with experience in land acquisition, asset management, and operations management. Together, Dakota Legacy Group holds high standards and we are excited about what we can achieve together!
