Doughnuts! The options are many, from maple and chocolate bars, glazed, plain cake, Bismarcks, Pershings, glazed twists, cinnamon swirls, sugar-coated, and the list goes on. I’ve come to believe that doughnuts are the American staple for coffee breaks, no matter where you are – office settings, construction sites, nurses’ stations, teacher lounges, and this list goes on. If you allow yourself to indulge, you likely have a favorite. I recently treated myself to a delicious doughnut dripping in chocolate icing (my favorite) from Mountie Moose Bakery in Townsend.
There is a sweet love affair happening on East Helena’s Main Street, with no end in sight. It involves Annie and Dave Posey, owners of Main Street Eats and the residents of this small town who adore them. And it’s about to get even more affectionate, when this hard-working couple opens up Blackjack Burger Company, a few doors down from Main Street Eats. In between the two businesses, the Poseys have repurposed Lucky’s, the oldest building on Main Street. Those with a sweet tooth will appreciate the fact it’s now a candy store, ice cream and soda fountain shop. Annie and Dave have become champions of revitalizing the town of East Helena.

Scott Swanson is proof that dreams do come true. He grew up in Glendive on Gibson Street, directly across from Howard’s Greenhouse. By 14, Scott was working at the greenhouse and dreaming of owning it one day. Scott and his future wife Lisa both served in the Marine Corps, and once their service was over, they were married and settled in Glendive. Circling back to that dream, the time was right for Scott and Lisa to purchase the greenhouse in October 2014.
