The Prime Rib opened up in 1990 in Spencer, Iowa by Gary “Huey” Huberg. It has been a very popular restaurant amongst locals and tourists since, attracting people during the Clay County Fair and on annual hunting/fishing trips. Rob and Carol Gilbertson are very familiar with the restaurant as they and family have had previous experience working there.
The Prime Rib serves many different options, from Shrimp Scampi to Prime Rib to Chicken Wings. Since completing the purchasing of the restaurant in 2018, Rob and Carol have been continuously making improvements. Improvements such as making a new menu, new specials, upgrading the building, their hours, and exclusively serving Certified Angus Beef.
Before coming in contact with the Northwest Iowa SBDC Carol said: “we had a jumble of puzzle pieces, but we didn’t have a clear image of how they put together.” Paul Daniels at Northwest Bank connected them with Michael Wampler, Regional Director for the Northwest Iowa SBDC. Carol then said about working with him “Michael helped us put all the pieces on paper in a way that made sense for our business.” He also helped them with the creation of all the financial projections that the bank would require.
This veteran-owned business hopes to be able to keep improving and providing excellent customer service. They look forward to serving you!
