Kim Reimann took over the Trail Inn Cafe on the second offer in April 1997.

She credits encouragement from the two women, business partners, whom she worked for years before, with giving her the confidence to open and run her own business.

To honor Marilyn "Mort" Lund and Alice Iverson, Reimann returned the name of the Lanesboro cafe to its original name and re-introduced their homemade pizza and broasted chicken.

These days the mother of 2-year-old Emily and wife of Mark is looking to expand her family and sell the cafe.

"It's hard because you really put your heart and soul into a business," she said, adding that she'll probably work there again someday. "I'm sure I won't be gone forever."
