Schneider new owner of Century Saloon

Matt Schneider was looking to own a bar or restaurant for the last couple of years.

"I enjoyed being out with people and socializing," he said.

So when he found out that the Century Saloon in Ellsworth was for sale, it was an opportunity he couldn't pass up.

"I pursued it and let the chips fall where they did," he added.

The chips landed on him taking ownership of the tavern Jan. 1, located on Main St. from Roman Hendrickson.

The Foley, Minn., native is new to the area but does have a connection. His sister is Melissa Achenbach, husband of Denton, who owns the State Farm Insurance no less than 50 feet from where the Saloon is located.
