Insight On Business the News Hour

The Restaurant Business in Rural America - Meet Burke Risetter

August 15, 2018

We headed out of the Des Moines Metro to Webster City, Iowa where we did a piece about rural economic development using the tools a small town already has. Our guest was Deb Brown from Rural that Works an upcoming seminar that, yep you guessed it, takes place in Rural Iowa. We met at the Grid Iron Grill and Sports Bar a great eatery just east of Webster City. After our visit with Deb we sat down with owner Burke Risetter who has been wrangling the place for the past ten years. We think you'll enjoy this story....
