Save Local Businesses
Roger’s Ice Cream & Burgers established in 1940 with four locations in North Idaho has been affected by COVID-19 “lockdown” as many of our local businesses have. “…Dining room closed in 4 locations, which is typically 60-70% of sales… All of our crew has been able to stay on & work during these times & we have been hiring as well… Another challenge is training our young crew members on new safety standards”- said Nicole Randolph, the co-owner with her husband Mark Randolph.
While it is not easy to do the administrative work from home with kids home from school, what makes them happy is to have more time together as a family.
Randolph’s concerns are “how business will be affected going forward. The new normal. Reduced dining rooms? The safety of overall community and at risk population. We used to have vans from senior care living places come to dine with us. It was a pleasure to be a part of their outings for the day.”
Nevertheless, the owners of the popular dining restaurant are optimistic to move forward: “Our lease was up at Neider in Coeur d’Alene and we are currently building a new location to replace it on Government Way between Appleway & Ironwood, hopefully opening July/August.” And “We are honored and blessed to be a part of this community. We love it here and will continue to serve food. “
