The Knox County Board of Supervisors recently approved a loan to Patti Stoural to purchase Misty’s Saloon located at 309 S. Main St. in Verdigre.
Misty’s has been open for business for over 70 years serving Verdigre and the surrounding communities. Patti will be only the 4th owner in that time.
In addition to a good cleaning and fresh paint, the bar floor will be replaced, new chairs will be purchased along with new cushions on the bar stools. Patti intends to keep the same menu while adding a few items such as Jaternice, stuffed burgers, and lunch specials Monday through Friday.
Hours of the business are 9 AM to closing Sunday through Saturday. WiFi will be available and they will now accept debit and credit cards.
This project was a collaborative effort involving Knox County, Pinnacle Bank in Verdigre, and Northeast Economic Development, Inc. (NED, Inc.) It is estimated that 4-5 jobs will be retained as a result of this venture. Knox County has business loan funds that are available to businesses located in Knox County and NED, Inc. has business loan funds available in 26 counties in northeast and north central Nebraska.
