Business Beat

Posted: Updated:

Fargo based JL Beers is coming to Minot. The news was announced today that Minot based ZZ Food Group operated by Wayne and Jesse Zwak would be bringing the franchise to the Magic City. Jesse tells me that they hope to be open early in 2014...and that a location isn't set in stone yet -- but they are strongly considering downtown Minot. JL Beers is known for their craft beer selection and burgers, fresh fries, and chips.

Fuddruckers is getting closer to building in Minot...and they hope to build here -- next to Sonic that came to the Magic City in 2013. Permitting with the city of Minot for this location is still in the works, but it looks like this will be the spot for the burger franchise.

Speaking of food -- Speedway is back in the region. Actually it is now known as the Speedway Roadhouse after business partners Emmitt Trimble and Vernon Garrison have resurrected the business. Fine dining that will remind you of what the restaurant once was... They will be open Tuesday through Saturday...and will start with a somewhat limited menu, but the staples will be there. Prime Rib, Steak, Speedway Shrimp...and yes...the famous orange sauce.

(Vernon Garrison - Speedway Roadhouse) "When we first found it was like we had captured onto a piece of history. As the news was spreading people were excited about the opening."

They are still hiring...with Business Beat, I'm Perry Olson. en we first found it it was like we had captured onto a piece of history.
