Business Bit: Work continues at future site of Thai restaurant

ROCK FALLS – Despite the chill, dust is flying at the the future home of Touch of Thai II, where building owner Trirong Khuntangta is moving ahead with plans for a restaurant, bar, coffee shop, and gym/wellness center.

The historic downtown building, at First Avenue and Second Street, was the home of Innovations 4 You clothing shop, which closed in November 2012.

Traditional Wellness Center II will be in the basement, while the restaurant will share the first floor with Rusty's, a bar owned by Brent Sisson, 39, of Dixon.

Khuntangta had hoped to open last summer, but the building, built in 1899, needs "so much work," he said.

He plans to have the bar, wellness center and coffee shop open by the end of February, with the restaurant coming a few months after that.

Khuntangta, 46, also owns Traditional Wellness Center, Touch of Thai, and Ginko Tree Cafe, all in Dixon.

For more information, go to traditionalwellnesscenter.com or call Khuntangta at 815-677-9144.
