New restaurant, marina and jobs coming to Walloon Village this summer

From the Petoskey News-Review: Up to 80 new jobs will become available in Walloon Lake this spring. Matt Borisch says he bought a series of properties in the little village last year with a simple intention: to bring life to the town and create something lasting. A marina, restaurant, boat showroom and service center are all planned for this summer. Construction of the buildings to house those businesses is progressing as planned. The boat dealership is currently open to customers by appointment, the service center will open April 15 and the marina and restaurant are expected to open by Memorial Day weekend. Just this week Borisch selected an executive chef to lead the 150-seat Barrel Back restaurant.  Full story.  Marina website.
