Super 8 was started by Dennis Brown in 1972. The original room rate was $8.88, hence the brand name Super 8. The first Super 8 was opened in 1974 in Aberdeen, SD. It was built near a Holiday Inn with just some drawings made by Rivett as blueprints. The stucco exterior with an English Tudorstyle was inspired by Rivett’s father-in-law, who was a stuccoer; the English Tudor style and placing of Super 8’s near Holiday Inns was an established procedure for setting up new Super 8’s for years to come. The first franchise was sold in 1976 and established in Gillette, Wyoming. By 1978 Super 8 stretched from the state of New York to the state of Washington and was no longer just a Midwestern United States company.
