Business notebook: Asian Buffet might open this month

Asian Buffet might open this month

STERLING – Mike Wei, owner of Asian Buffet, said Tuesday that he hopes to open the restaurant this month.

Yep, this month.

Work has been going hot and heavy on the long-anticipated restaurant. The eatery at 3106 E. Lincolnway now has outdoor lighting on its roof.

Wei had hoped to open the restaurant, which will serve Chinese food and Mongolian stir-fry, in April 2010.

First Wok, also owned by Wei, remains closed. The restaurant at 1110 First Ave., Rock Falls, sustained smoke and fire damage in a Dec. 12 fire.

STERLING – Frantz Manufacturing Co. joined Gov. Pat Quinn on a trade mission to Mexico April 3-6, according to a news release from the company.

Frantz’s senior vice president, Greg Yemm, joined 28 delegates on the mission to meet key Mexican business, economic and political leaders and to increase the manufacturing profile of the Sauk Valley region, the release said.
