In Kasson, the owners of Tammy’s Place are moving along with construction for a new restaurant and bar along main street.

Tammy and Travis Dee understand the challenging times ahead with high inflation, tighter budgets and supply chain issues.

“I kept worrying in the back of my head like if we should, should we not, because of the economy. It’s scarry times right now, but I just wasn’t ready to be done. Once you’re your own boss, it’s hard to go back,” said Tammy Dee.
