New Location and New Menu ready to WOW!
HIBBING, MN (September 22, 2010) – Country Kitchen® Restaurant of Hibbing, MN is ready to wow with a new location, new menu and management team poised for success! The restaurant, located in the Graysher Shopping Center, is now open and ready to serve you!
The Hibbing Country Kitchen is owned and operated by Franchisee Keny Adams, a current member of the Country Kitchen family and owner/operator of the award-winning Mountain Iron location. Heading up the leadership team alongside Keny is Marlene Larson who serves as the restaurant’s General Manager. Marlene, who lives in Chisholm with her husband and two sons,
is a seasoned professional within the hospitality industry with over 23 years of experience, including a role as an In-Store Training Coordinator for Country Kitchen International. According to Adams, “It is our goal to provide the Hibbing community a sparkling family restaurant with the best food and service anywhere. This beautiful building, great management team, superstar staff and quality menu are a winning combination that I feel will be successful here. Dean and I are very thankful to be able to expand right now, and we are even luckier to have Marlene at the helm. She and every member of our current team have a personal commitment to high standards. This is why we have continued to grow and how we have restored Country Pride to the Virginia / Mountain Iron restaurant. We’re ready to do it again.” Adds Marlene, “This is my dream job and I have always loved the Hibbing building, so I couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity to run it.”
Originally built in the 1970’s, Country Kitchen of Hibbing recently conducted an expansive renovation featuring contemporary décor elements, which are a hallmark of the chain’s family-oriented ambiance. The location features a full menu ranging from favorites such as the Farm Skillet®, All You Can Eat Pancakes and Big Country Burger™, to new contemporary classics like Chicken Broccoli Alfredo and Grilled Salmon. The atmosphere of hospitality extends to Free Wi-Fi and Carside Carry-Out Service, just like in Mountain Iron.
