MANDY JOHNSON - OWNER
Mandy stepped in as partner of Casa Rio in November 2018. Prior to that, she'd done the payroll and bookkeeping for Jay, the founder of Casa Rio.
"I was ready for a new challenge, and I saw the great restaurant that Jay built. When Jay wanted to expand, I felt we could take Casa Rio to the next level."
Mandy learned every aspect of the restaurant business, expanded the catering offerings and purchased a food truck in the first few months. She built on the talented team already in place and continues to strive to make Casa Rio the go-to destination for authentic Tex Mex cuisine.
JAY ESTENSEN - OWNER
Jay comes from a family of restaurateurs. His father purchased his first restaurant when Estenson was eight years old. He then opened a supper club in ND. Estenson grew up working in the family restaurant business and has spent his career working in the industry. He worked in sales with US Foods and spent 10 years managing restaurants in the Twin Cities before opening Casa Rio over 10 years ago. The fresh Tex-Mex flavors on the menu are a culmination of Jay's experience in the food industry.
