Third 'farmers' restaurant' to open in MarylandA third farmers’ restaurant with ties to the North Dakota Farmers Union is planning to open this fall.
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A third farmers’ restaurant with ties to the North Dakota Farmers Union is planning to open this fall.
Farmers Union President Robert Carlson says the restaurant will be called Founding Farmers Potomac. It will be located in Potomac, Maryland.
The Farmers Union already owns the Founding Farmers and Farmers and Fishers restaurants in Washington, D.C. The Farmers and Fishers restaurant was originally known as Agraria.
Carlson says the Farmers Union won't own the Maryland restaurant. It is being paid a royalty fee to use the Founding Farmers name and management team.
Carlson says the restaurants have been doing well, although the Farmers and Fishers restaurant had to close in mid-April because of flooding at its Washington Harbour location. No reopening date has been set.
