There has been undeniable positive economic energy in Rangely over the past month, with several new business opening. In the past week, two new eateries established a home in Rangely. It was a joint effort to fill the empty space next to the Blue Mountain Inn. Town officials, residents, and the restaurant’s co-owners Samantha Smith and Tessa States can be thanked for the space’s transformation into Dottie’s Kitchen. Smith and States ventured over from Utah in hopes to offer another option for hungry hotel guests and Rangely residents. Dottie’s Kitchen is located at 37 Park St. Their menu offers classic home-cooked breakfast and lunch favorites at an affordable price. Call 970-675-2212 for take-out or drop by the restaurant from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday-Saturday, or Sunday 11 a.m.-5 p.m. In November the duo plans to extend their hours and offer dinner.
On Oct. 12, Rangely native McKale Palacios served up her first meal out of her business, The Brunch Truck, LLC (top). Palacios saw a need in the community and decided to trade in her daily work commute to Grand Junction for self-employment. You can enjoy her tasty breakfast burritos and paninis Monday-Thursday from 5 a.m.-1 p.m. The Brunch Truck, LLC is located between the Bank of the San Juan’s and the Main Street Café on Main Street.
