U.S. Representative Ashley Hinson (R-IA 2nd District) stopped by Charles City for a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich on Thursday, Feb. 8.
Hinson had lunch at All About Cheesesteaks, a relatively new specialty restaurant on Gilbert Street owned by Joe Low.
“I think it’s really neat to see a true success story,” said Hinson.
Having met Low last year at his food truck and hearing of his then future plans to open up a permanent location in Charles City, Hinson made time during her travels through the west side of her congressional district to stop in and see how the shop was shaping up.
Getting a quick tour of the restaurant, Hinson and Low discussed workforce, building availability, and other issues that come with opening up a new business in rural Iowa.
“It’s important to me to talk with the small businesses community about the challenges they face,” said Hinson.
