    The business of the week is Runza who would everyone to know:

    “Runza was founded by Sarah”Sally” (Brening) Everrett, who was born in Sutton, NE.  In 1949, Sally opened a carhop stand near Pioneers Park in Lincoln, NE to sell this homemade baked sandwich. She was a business woman who worked hard to support her family. Though there are several names for similar products, Sally was the one who coined the final spelling and pronunciation of her product and trademarked the Runza name. Her children worked for her as they grew up. Her son Donald Everett, Sr., while in his 20’s, had the vision that Runza could be a chain of restaurants. In 1966, Don Sr. opened his first Runza carhop location and worked countless hours to make it a success. Above all, his focus was quality food and outstanding customer service. In 1979, when franchising was taking off across the US, he sold his first franchise in Grand Island, Ne and Runza grew rapidly during the 1980’s. With over 80 locations in four states, the tradition of quality continues to this day.

    The Ogallala/Keith County Chamber of Commerce would like to thank “Runza” for their continued loyalty to Keith County!
