Business Scene for the week of 5/3/17

Under new management
Bringing more then 35 years experience in the restaurant business, Joe and Bonnie France are now managing Clifford’s Restaurant, formerly called the Lake Almanor County Club Restaurant. Joe retired four years ago while living in Carson City, but decided he missed the restaurant business. This past winter, the LACC Board voted to change the restaurant’s name to honor Ed Clifford, founder of the Country Club. Although it’s a gated community, the public is welcome to dine and play golf. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and also serve a Sunday brunch. Photo by Cheri McIntire
