New corporate headquarters planned at Lake Lorraine

By Jodi Schwan

Total Card Inc. is planning a new corporate headquarters at Lake Lorraine.

The company provides customized call center support and financial products and services and also issues its own credit cards. It has operated out of leased space in southwest Sioux Falls for the past decade.

The new location will be two stories, 40,000 square feet and able to accommodate about 400 workers.

“It’s going to be really cool,” said Greg Johnson, who co-founded the company with Greg Ticknor and Scott Swain in 2000.

“It will have a lot of windows, a lot that face the lake, stone work, underground parking and a patio on the roof for corporate events and parties.”

Total Card has grown to more than 300 employees. It has issued millions of Visa and MasterCard accounts and serviced accounts for a growing number of Fortune 500 companies.

It’s the second-largest office to build at the property near 26th Street and Marion Road. Carsforsale.com moved into its building earlier this summer. The Total Card project, including land, is valued at $10 million.

Several new national retailers are scheduled to open starting in early October.

“We’re excited about Total Card,” said Mike Van Buskirk, director of operations for Lake Lorraine co-developer Van Buskirk Cos. “It adds to the full lifestyle mix and brings people working there during the day who will use the restaurants and shops and generate extra traffic.”

Johnson said the location near shopping and dining, combined with the lakefront, make the location attractive to employees.

“It’s becoming increasingly competitive hiring, and we think this will help give us a leg up,” he said.

Total Card also will be next to an Aloft hotel, which is scheduled to start construction next year. The hotel brand is known for its large indoor and outdoor bar areas that attract the public as well as overnight guests.

“Almost every week we have out-of-town guests in, so it’s perfect with shopping, bars and a workout place,” Johnson said.

Total Card is at 5109 S. Broadband Lane.

Total Card also has an office in Luverne, Minn., and in Texas. The building that houses its current Sioux Falls office is next to Meta Financial Group, which has been growing its campus in the area.

The new Total Card headquarters is scheduled to open next summer.

“It’s a nice, signature project,” Van Buskirk said. “It’s like Carsforsale. They could have found options anywhere, and maybe even more cost-effective, but they saw the vision of the lake, and that’s where they want to put themselves.”
