Food service business seeks loan

Monday, April 16, 2012

McCOOK, Nebraska -- The McCook City Council will consider an application for an economic development loan, Monday evening during their regularly scheduled meeting at Memorial Auditorium, from a couple seeking to start-up a new food service business in McCook.

According to the application Shellie and Douglas Winder of McCook are requesting a $35,000 loan through the Economic Development Revolving Loan Fund Program. The loan would be for 10 years at a three percent interest rate and used for the purchase of a building to be used for food service, meeting rooms and events.

Winder told the Gazette Monday morning that the couple is targeting the former alternative education building owned by McCook Public Schools, located near the bowling alley on North U.S. Highway 83. The business would be focused on selling pre-assembled meals and is targeting a June 1, 2012, opening date.

City staff has recommended approval of the loan request.

  • This looks like a good use for the revolving loan fund. I have known Doug and Shellie for years and they are good responsible people.
