Restaurant loan

Cheryl Mollenkopf and Laura Davis (second from the left and center, respectively), new owners of the Wren Restaurant, receive a check for $50,000 from the Van Wert Revolving Loan Program to update the restaurant building, including improvements to the kitchen. In return, the women will provide jobs for low- and moderate-income employees. Both Davis and Mollenkopf notedthey plan to offer specials and other new menu items to attract new customers, while maintaining most of current customers’ favorite items. Presenting the check is Van Wert Mayor Louis Ehmer, while City Council President Gary Corcoran, who also chairs the Revolving Loan Fund Committee, and Denise Frey, look on.
