Business Buzz: Coffee shop changes; upscale restaurant expands


Here’s some business news in the Missoula area:

Boxcar Bistro, a fine-dining restaurant in the Old Sawmill District in Missoula, has announced that it is expanding to add about 50% more indoor and outdoor seating.

“Our sights are now set on becoming recognizable on a much larger scale,” said Mark Stanford, the restaurant’s director of operations. “I am excited at the opportunity to spearhead this effort and bring years of industry expertise, longstanding industry relationships, and a fresh focus into our program here at Boxcar.”

He said the menu will be adjusted weekly.

“The mainstays and crowd favorites aren’t going anywhere, but our goal is to see some new and innovative offerings on the menu every week,” he said.

The restaurant is owned by Ed and Leslie Wetherbee, the developers behind the Old Sawmill District. They focus on wines from around the world paired with a mix of French and American cuisine.
