Business - NOV 21

Posted: Updated:

Fuddruckers is officially open for business now in Willston. The burger chain has made a return to the state with the opening in Bakken Country -- and company officials say they still plan on opening another North Dakota location in Minot in 2014.

In Minot, it was celebration day yesterday at Ryan Chevrolet. Not only celebrating 40 years of business -- but officially cutting the ribbon opening the newly remodeled store. Ryan Automotive Group has grown over the years...but this store was the first purchased by Jim Ryan...and the group still remains in the family.

A new store opened recently at Dakota Square Mall -- Lids -- a franchise store that offers hats of athletic teams and brands...

But another business that has been there for more than 8 years still remains open.

That would be Top Shelf -- a locally owned and operated business run by John Schmidt.

Schmidt started the business years back and has grown it into what it is now -- a popular spot in the mall just down from the clock court.

He says its is an ever changing business in that you have to keep up with the latest trends...but he is doing it -- and proud to have started something from scratch that has been so successful.

(John Schmidt - Top Shelf) "It was kind of nerve-wracking. I started out actually with two rows of hats on my first store...I only had enough money for that. Started out with two rows of hats and I have built it up to now what it is."

Top Shelf has opened another location in Jamestown, and Schmidt says more may be coming soon as well. With Business Beat, I'm Perry Olson.
