Wendy Howe, director of the Minot Convention and Visitor's Bureau, said Minot residents love the new choices, and more restaurants also mean Minot is a more attractive destination for people from other cities.

"We've been hearing a lot of excitement from visitors who have one more reason to come to Minot," Howe said. "This is also a great benefit to the Minot Air Force Base personnel who come here from other places and are used to seeing those types of restaurants."

Verendrye serves the areas outside of the Highway 2 Bypass that rings the city, and the southern area near the Dakota Square Mall is one of the most lucrative places for new restaurants.

New hotels also help spur new restaurants, and Minot has seen a number of new hotels in the past few years.
Sonic has already announced that Minot will be its first location in North Dakota. It will be located along 16th Street SW near the new La Quinta and Baymont Hotels across from the YMCA. Sonic has 3,500 locations nationwide and is known its personal carhop service with a selection of burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches desserts and drinks, such as their cherry limeades.

As the city continues to grow, there is lots of speculation about what restaurant will be coming next. But as Minot has seen, much of that speculation has turned into new places to eat in the past few years. Howe and and a number of existing restaurant owners think Minot could still use a few more places to eat.

"We continue to hear that restaurants are continuing to look at the southwest area of Minot and even farther south," Howe said. "We're remaining optimistic that we will see even more new restaurants." 1/31/2013 12:00:00 AM

Wendy Howe - Minot Convention and Visitors Bureau

Former VisitMinot director Wendy ... [cached]

Former VisitMinot director Wendy Howe resigned her position June 5, 2014, just hours before a scheduled board meeting of the Minot Convention and Visitor's Bureau, or VisitMinot. Topics on the agenda for the meeting included "executive director search. The meeting was canceled following Howe's resignation.

Subsequently the CVB board has received a report from Rollie Port Investigations on Howe's activities within the CVB, primarily expenses charged to a CVB credit card. According to the report, Howe made personal purchases that included a laptop computer, a trip to Wisconsin Dells, a stay at the Holiday Inn of Jamestown, a Minot dinner meeting, six State Fair tickets and over $2,500 of gasoline.
Additionally, Howe has reimbursed the CVB for a massage at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas, Nev., a PlayStation purchased at Best Buy of Minot and for a motel room in Bismarck. In the report Howe states she did not catch those oversights at the time they occurred.
The investigative report claims Howe "lied and deceived the board" and had a pattern of mixing up the personal and business credit cards to pay for items. The report also says Howe stated she had "merely used the office Visa by mistake" to purchase the laptop and that room charges of $827 at Wisconsin Dells was for the purpose of checking out a proposed convention site on behalf of the Upper Midwest Convention and Visitor's Bureau. According to CVB records, Howe was on paid vacation during the time of the Wisconsin Dells trip.
The investigative report did not include any activities prior to late 2013. Howe had been with the CVB more than 11 years at the time of her resignation. Although the report did not give an exact total of expenses allegedly charged by Howe to the CVB credit card, the total amount of dollars claimed in the report to be inappropriate expenses approaches $10,000.
