New downtown restaurant busy, manager says

Williams Lake’s newest restaurant has been busy since opening on Monday, June 12.

Mr. Mikes Steakhouse Casual manager Nigel Lax said the staff could not ask for a better introduction.

“We have been quite busy and are excited to become a part of the community,” Lax said, noting they love the downtown location on the corner of Oliver Street and Third Avenue.

Lax said he was the assistant manager at a Mr. Mikes in Prince George the last four years and moved to Williams Lake two weeks ago.

This is the 33rd restaurant in Western Canada and the first of six new stores opening in 2017 with Estevan, Saskatchewan and Winkler, Manitoba set to open this summer, said Mike Cordoba, CEO and one of the owners of the MR MIKES® brand.

“We are proud to open in Williams Lake and look forward to our new guests visiting our restaurant and instantly feeling like they fit in,” Cordoba said.

Lax said there are roughly 60 people working at the restaurant in Williams Lake.
