Josie Norgren and Todd Weston, Hillbillies Vittles & Brew and Hillbillies Ice Hole Bar

Erhard, Minn.

Josie Norgren and Todd Weston own Hillbillies Vittles & Brew in Erhard, Minn. Seven years ago, they decided to expand their business onto North Lake Lida by operating a bar in a fishing house two nights a week when the lake is frozen over.

As business owners who bring their bar to their customers, Josie and Todd understand the importance of convenience, which is one of the reasons they like banking at Bell.

“I feel we get the customer service we deserve by keeping it local at Bell Bank.”
