Red River Reports Strong Business Growth In 2023

The Town of Red River Office of Economic Development & Tourism announced in a press release, a surge in business growth in 2023, with several new businesses opening shop toward the end of 2023.


One of the highlights of this growth is the opening of the Red River Brewing Company & Distillery’s Tasting Room and Production Facility #2. In the words of the brewery’s representative, “we are excited to open our doors to the Red River community with our new Tasting Room and Production Facility. The support we received from the economic development programs has been invaluable in realizing our growth plans, and we are eager to share our craft beers and spirits with both locals and visitors.”


Another notable addition to Red River is Snarky Malarkey’s – Gifts Gone Amiss. This unique retail store offers a wide selection of “inappropriate” gifts, catering to those with a sense of humor that leans towards the unconventional. “We are thrilled to bring our one-of-a-kind store to Red River,” said the owners. “Our aim is to provide a fun and quirky shopping experience for locals and tourists alike, and we can’t wait to see the community’s reaction to our unique product offering.”


The collaboration between Cimarron-based Blu Dragonfly Brewing Company and Madam’s Lounge and Theatre gave birth to a new taproom in town. The representatives of Blu Dragonfly Brewing Company expressed their excitement, stating, “partnering with Madam’s Lounge and Theatre to create this new taproom has been a fantastic opportunity for us to expand our reach into Red River. We look forward to serving our specially crafted beers to all the beer enthusiasts in and around the area.”


Lastly, T-Bucks Restaurant has reopened under new ownership, boasting a revamped menu that includes freshly made donuts and mouthwatering breakfast options. The owners of the restaurant expressed their enthusiasm, saying, “we’re thrilled to take the reins of this beloved establishment and offer the community delicious breakfast options that will start their day off right. Our donuts are a special treat that we think everyone will enjoy.”


According to the release, the Town of Red River Office of Economic Development & Tourism expressed pride, welcoming these businesses while “celebrating their contribution to the town’s prosperity.” The release goes on to say, “with increasing opportunities for locals and visitors alike, Red River is poised for growth and continued success heading into the new year.”
