It's a big moment for a big company that has played a big role in agriculture in this part of the state. Gooseneck Implement is celebrating the grand opening of their new Kenmare location. Gooseneck is based out of Kenmare...and this facility is the largest Gooseneck has. The project has been two years in the making...and an open house is scheduled for tomorrow to officially christen the new, large Gooseneck. Bigger machinery means more space is needed...and that shouldn't be a problem now in Kenmare. Gooseneck also has locations in seven other communities in the region.
In Bottineau, a second location for Ellie Ann's Interior Design has opened up recently -- adding to the first location in Rugby. Susan Brandjort is the owner of Ellie Ann's...You'll find Ellie Ann's at 602 Main Street in Bottineau. She says the plan was always to open a second location...and now that they have they are very busy. Ellie Ann's offers everything from floor to ceiling for your home, or business as well and they are open Monday through Friday from 9 to 5.
In Minot, Qdoba is expanding...not to another location, rather what they offer. Nationwide, Qdoba is starting to look more and more at offering breakfast items...and the Minot location is being tried as one of the first in the region to offer breakfast. You'll find many of the same tastes offered in the morning here...with some breakfast items mixed in as well of course. The tastes are good...and if it catches on, look for more of this in the Qdoba brand...
(Mike Kelly - Qdoba) "That was one of the reasons they allowed us to go ahead with it as kind of a test market to see how it goes in this area. There are a few restaurants in ND and if it goes well they may implement it in all of them."
Breakfast at Qdoba has been offered in Minot for about two weeks. With Business Beat, I'm Perry Olson.
