It’s usually seldom that ownership changes for businesses in small-town Nebraska, but when it does it often makes a big impact on the community.
Taylor Schwager, the new owner of The Royal Bar located in Royal, Nebraska has several aspirations for the future of the business. Schwager has already made quick strides in his short time of ownership with improvements ranging from the installation of a new sign on the front side of the exterior of the building to clearing out trees around the vicinity of the building.
Schwager’s upcoming plans for The Royal Bar include remodeling the interior, installing a new bar, featuring live bands at least once a month, implementing Keno as an activity, and increasing the size of the beer garden as well as installing televisions and providing heat within it. Schwager also excitedly talked about progress of the bar and how business has been going.
“We’ve been doing really well so far. We’ve had a lot of support and help from friends and the community,” Schwager said.
The Royal Bar is managed by Kendra Jeffords, who also serves as the cook.
“We serve lunch every day. We’ve also been doing a lot of drink specials and drawings for different prizes.” Schwager said.
Schwager, 30 years old, is a longtime resident of Orchard, Nebraska. He farms for a living, while additionally owning his own trucking business. Schwager also has one three year old daughter.
