Chanticlear PizzaCongratulations on 50 Years in Business
Chanticlear Franchise System is the Franchisor of Chanticlear Pizza. They currently have 14 locations, with a new bar &
restaurant opening in Coon Rapids.
Co-owner Mary Heille said, “Village Bank has been our bank of choice for the last 8 years for our business banking. It’s been great being able to do online banking to save us time, but when we do need to stop in, it’s the convenient locations and friendly people that keep us satisfied with our banking partner.”
RECIPE FOR SUCCESS
Chanticlear Pizza is an original Twin Cities pizzeria! Like many small, family owned businesses, Chanticlear Pizza started with one location in Fridley, Minnesota back in 1964. Chanticlear Pizza was delivering fresh, stone baked thin crust pizza before any of the big chain pizza places came to town.
WHAT QUALITY MEANS TO CHANTICLEAR PIZZA
At Chanticlear Pizza quality is not a trick, it is the single focus in every decision they make. 50 years after it all began, Chanticlear Pizza continues to make fresh dough made daily in all their restaurants. The dough is allowed to slowly and naturally rise. Chanticlear Pizza never freezes their dough or truck it in from a factory. Chanticlear Pizzas crispy thin crust comes from dough which has been properly handled and stone baked to perfection.
Chanticlear Pizza has their own secret recipe pizza sauce made from all natural ingredients including fresh California tomatoes. At Chanticlear Pizza, they don’t add sugar to their sauce. Chanticlear Pizza sauce is packed from tomatoes that have reached vine-ripened perfection to capture their sweet garden flavor.
Chanticlear Pizza will only use 100% REAL® Wisconsin mozzarella. Chanticlear Pizza grates their cheese daily from whole blocks of premium low-fat mozzarella. You will taste the unforgettable fresh flavor of cheese that has never been frozen in every bite of Chanticlear Pizza.

Creativity and quality drive them to make clients dream homes become reality. Whole house renovation, additions, kitchens, and bathrooms Task Masters does it all. Scott Widstrom, the company owner tells about his experience with Village Bank, “When Task Masters was a fairly new company we were looking to expand and needed to secure some machinery, after being looked over by a number of the big national banks we had a friend tell us to go visit with Village Bank. The short story is that just 1 day later (after talking with Village Bank) we had the machinery that we needed to complete the work load for the upcoming year! Since that first piece of machinery Village Bank has been by our side!”
“In my opinion Village Bank has always been out in front of its customers needs.”, Scott added.
Blaine BrothersServing the transportation industry since 1979 & partnering with Village Bank since 2003
Dean Dally is the owner of Blaine Brothers, Inc. which, in 1979, began a successful business by providing quality, dependable
services to the trucking industry. As a Village Bank customer since 2003, Dean knows first hand how the loan process works & is
excited to begin his role as a Board Member.
Dean said, “ I attribute Blaine Brothers continued success to Mr. Don Kveton and Village Bank as they were the ones that
arranged a substantial business loan that was used to purchase my father’s remaining interest in the company. Village Bank was
also there when the decision was made to purchase the assets of a local competitor, North American Trailer, in 2008. As we
all know, that was a difficult time in the market but Don and Village Bank believed in what we were trying to accomplish
and today North American Trailer is a thriving operation with facilities in Inver Grove Heights, Eagan and Scanlon MN, as
well as in Stanley North Dakota. In late 2013 we called on Village Bank again when we had the opportunity to purchase 2
other business’s, TruckAline and Hydraulic Specialty. Again, our continued success hinges on the support that we have with our
banking relationship and for that we are very grateful.”Blaine Brothers provides quality and dependable services to the
trucking industry. Offering 24-hour service, 365 days a year, Blaine Brothers will take care of heavy duty towing, and semi

Company owner, Jason McCarty, said “We became personal banking customers in 2004 at Village Bank, after being fed up with unfair tactics at a large bank. As a result of the fair treatment and friendly staff we brought our business banking to Village Bank as well.”
“No Fee ATM at many locations beyond Village Bank, cashiers checks, and regular banking, are just a few of the services we find most valuable,” added Jason.
Jason understands that “home” is typically his residential clients’ biggest investment, where they spend a considerable amount of time, and where they raise their families.
As a business owner himself, Jason also understands his commercial clients’ need to balance value with quality and return on investment, but recognizes that relationships are just as critical in this type of work.

Scentsy is a flameless, wickless candle company that offers a safer solution to burning candles. The wax that is used is
designed to melt a low temperature so that it never gets hot to burn to the touch. The warmers use a light bulb that is based
off the size of the warmer (plug-in warmers, mid size warmers and premium and deluxe warmers).
Valerie Tucker, Independent Scentsy Consultant, said, “I have tried other banks and I have never really been satisfied with
the customer service that I was receiving or the knowledge that they had of there own policies. I had a really bad experience and the bank manager had no interest in helping me try to resolve the problem at all. Then I heard of Village Bank and I looked into it, I was amazed and very happy with how they answered every question that I had and never gave me the “I’m not sure” answer.”
Valerie also added, “Everybody at the Blaine and East Bethel branches are wonderful and I recommend Village Bank to everybody that I know for there amazing customer service. I have been at Village Bank for 3 years and I would never change banks for anything.”
