Many of you may know that I worked for Perkins Restaurants for many years. I moved up to Kalispell to help open that restaurant, and that I where I met my lovely wife. Yesterday morning, I heard the disturbing news that Perkins in Kalispell burned. I knew every board in that place as I was there during the construction and opening of the restaurant. I worked there as Associate Manager with the owner Craig Witte for about two years before moving to Butte to train as general manager for the Helena Perkins. May God be with Craig, his family, and all of the employees that are now with out jobs. Click HERE to see the news from “The Daily Interlake” newspaper in Kalispell.
