Eide Bailly awarded

The Bismarck-Mandan Chamber of Commerce named Eide Bailly its 2018 Granite Award winner.

The Granite Award is the Chamber’s highest award for businesses that have supported the community for at least 50 years. The award will be presented Sept. 6 at the 2018 Celebrate Bismarck-Mandan award ceremony.

Eide Bailly has been in business for 100 years, opening locally in 1968.

The company is being honored for its approach to innovation in the accounting industry and for its monetary giving programs, such as the Corporate Citizenship program, which encourages employees to give back by offering a $200 corporate match to a local nonprofit of their choice.

Bennigan’s hiring

With the opening of Bennigan’s in Mandan quickly approaching, the restaurant says it is seeking 100 employees to fill all positions — including hosts, server assistants, servers, bartenders, cooks and dishwashers.

Bennigan’s is an Irish pub, and franchisee Monte Stein’s location at 1506 27th St. N.W., near the Mandan Walmart, will be the chain’s first in North Dakota.

New Reiki practice

Reiki Therapy at 2910 E. Broadway Ave. is expanding with another practitioner.

Paulette Dutchak started practicing Reiki after moving from North Dakota to Oregon. Now she’s returning to her home state to be closer to family and will establish her own Reiki practice.

Reiki Therapy founder Glennis Spier said Reiki, a natural healing-touch therapy, has helped her clients with everything from post traumatic stress disorder to cerebral palsy to chronic pain. She said it works by relaxing the body, which allows healing.

As part of her practice, Dutchak will offer individual sessions, pet therapy and Reiki classes.
