Business Openings Start to Show in Around the State

In this week's Around the State (a publication that highlights business openings and closing in each region throughout Oregon) quite a few business openings appeared in the news.

Eastern Oregon's news seemed more grim than other areas of the state with the closure of the Prarie Wood Products mill in Praire City, and additional layoffs at the U.S. Forest Service office in Unity.

In other, brighter news:

Planning has begun for a proposed $20-million world-class destination golf resort near the ocean in Pistol River. Although in the early planning stages, the target date for opening is June 2011. It will have 25 to 75 cabins and employee housing. Curry Coastal Pilot, 5-16-09

Turtle’s Beejie Hut, a business that sells organic kettle corn, opened in Ashland. Ashland Daily Tidings, 5-16-09

G5 Search Marketing, an Internet advertising company in Bend, has expanded. It employs 52 people, up from 14 at the beginning of 2008. Bend Bulletin, 5-21-09

Famous Dave’s restaurant will open in Tualatin. It will employ about 150 people. Portland Tribune, 5-21-09
