International Influences in Businesses Around the State

From restaurants to retail and manufacturing, there's a global theme to this week's Around the State.

First, food! New international cuisine includes:

Sunrise Cafe opened in Medford. It offers oriental and Hawaiian-inspired fare. Medford Mail-Tribune, 3-25-10

Wassabi, a pan-Asian restaurant, opened at Tanasbourne Central shopping center in Hillsboro. It offers Japanese, Korean, and other eastern Asian fare. The Oregonian, 4-10-10

The Old Europe Inn in South Salem will close. But, the owner will open a new restaurant, Orupa, at the Waterplace in downtown Salem this summer. It will employ 25 people. Statesman Journal, 4-14-10

For the shoppers:

Chic to Chic Boutique, an upscale consignment shop, opened in Forest Grove. The Oregonian, 4-10-10

And one manufacturer makes news at home and abroad:

North River Boats in Roseburg delivered the first boat of a 95-boat contract with the U.S. Coast Guard. It is also building a 35-foot hydrographic survey boat for a Central American agency. North River has increased its workforce to more than 60 employees. The News-Review, 4-4-10
