The Manchester Chamber Ambassadors made a couple of visits this month.
The Ambassadors first stopped by Cork ‘N Bottle to meet new owner Rick Brunsmann. Brunsmann, who was looking for a change after over more than 30 years in the flood preparation and service business, recently purchased the business from Roger and Frieda McDowell. Brunsmann says all Iowa liquor comes through the state liquor warehouse in Ankeny and the best sellers locally are Captain Morgan Rum and Black Velvet Whiskey. Cork ‘N Bottle will handle special orders for cases of unusual liquor products upon request.
The Manchester Chamber Ambassadors also visited Las Flores Mexican Restaurant to meet and greet new manager Laura Villagrana. Villagrana, who also manages the Oelwein location, brings experience to the position. She shared the challenge of getting high quality food out to the customer in a short time and says she has brought in experienced cooks that will help provide quicker service. Villagrana welcomes feedback from Las Flores’ customers.
