Since the abrupt closing of the Western Edge Cafe and Lanes in New England several weeks ago…
The future is brighter as the establishment has new owners.
Steve and Carol Lafromboise from Bismarck have accepted the challenge of starting a new phase in their life. Currently Steve is the Business Manager of Torgerson Auto Center in Bismarck and Carol is the manager at Christopher & Banks. The couple have four children, two boys and two girls. The oldest girl, Megan is a culinary chef at Bistro’s and one of the sons who is currently attending Bismarck State College is going to move to New England with them and continue his education ‘on line.’
The new owners plan on being open seven days a week with full hours and will adjust the times as business demands. The alleys are staying and bowling will be available. The menu will be expanded and will include ‘Daily Specials’ and will include a ‘home cooking’ style of foods.
Current plans are to be open sometime in January as cleaning, ordering, painting, licensing, etc. will take some time and they will be busy with their current jobs. They are looking for a place to live and are in need of staff also.
The business will officially be called what people have been calling it for years, yes, it’s the B.A.
