    About Cafe Rio
    The year was 1997. The place, a little town in southern Utah called St. George. A lovely couple named Steve and Patricia Stanley started a restaurant called Cafe Rio Mexican Grill. Cafe Rio served authentic dishes derived from inspired recipes and traditional cooking of Northern Mexico’s Rio Grande region, Southern Texas, and New Mexico. Central to every bite was the belief that every ingredient must be fresh and made fresh to order. And you know what? People loved it. They couldn’t get enough of it. So much so, that one restaurant became six. In 2004, these six little restaurants caught the attention of a fine gentleman named Bob Nilsen. Bob purchased Cafe Rio from the Stanleys with the idea of spreading the love of making this fresh Mexican food to everyone in and around Utah and beyond. He made sure to keep the mantra of “fresh food, made fresh” at the very core of the brand. No freezers. No microwaves. Nothing pre-made. Cafe Rio's staff begins each day, bright and early, hand-squeezing limes, hand-scooping avocados, simmering sauces and preparing desserts. The crowds that line up at our eighty-five Cafe Rio locations today aren’t the only ones to take notice. Cafe Rio has won over 100 awards, from the Best of City Search and the Oxnard Salsa Festival to the Inc. 500 and the Alfred P. Sloan Award.

    Chamber Ribbon Cuttings
    A ribbon cutting is the ceremonial opening of a brand-new or newly-renovated/relocated business that has opened within the last 12 months. It can inaugurate a business’s first day of business or it can take place weeks after the business’s soft opening. The Chamber will consider ribbon cutting requests for anniversary celebrations. A ribbon cutting is not an automatic event to mark a new membership.
