This will soon be Montana Mike's -- a steakhouse along the lines of a Texas Roadhouse that you may know...well across the parking lot, the first business is starting to move in to the Willow Creek Crossing as it is know. Rock 30 Games is a North Dakota company that buys and sells video games and systems. Minot will be the 6th location in the state. The business actually started out of a college dorm room with a website 10 years ago...and has grown into a chain of stores.
In Williston, on the corner of Main and 11th you'll find a new restaurant with a southwest flair. Three Amigos Southwest Grill opened about a month ago with the goal of being ready to serve the ever growing population of the Williston basin. Three Amigos can serve you up here...or cater events as well.
Finally, a comeback story in the Magic City here -- at West Oaks Animal Hospital. After seeing the Mouse River reach the ceiling of the business last summer, the rebuild is nearly complete and on May 1st, business will return to normal at this location near Arrowhead Mall. Owner Tyler Hunskor says it has been a rough year working out of different locations...but he's excited to get back to business right here next week.
(Tyler Hunskor - West Oaks Animal Hospital) "It is a good feeling. I am excited to get back in here. It almost seems unreal that we could be at this point now considering where we were 10 months ago when we walked in here and saw the mess that we encountered."
He says getting back wouldn't have been possible without the help of friends, family...and pet owners too who helped them rebuild. With Business Beat -- I'm Perry Olson.
