A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place with the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce on Friday, November 8th at 4:00P.

“While we’re in the process of trying to expand our concept in Eastern Iowa, we also wanted to get some experience with providing drive thru service.” said Pryce T. Boeye, President and CEO of the company. “In this case, we were able to find a great complex in the heart of Eldridge that should serve both our customers and employees very well. If the first day of business is any indication of what to expect, it could end up being a surprisingly strong store.”
