Washington, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Jim Risch (R-Idaho), member and former chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, has named Snake River Grill of Hagerman as the Idaho Small Business of the Month for July 2019. Snake River Grill will be recognized in the Congressional Record of the U.S. Senate.

“The State of Idaho is proud to be a home for creative small businesses like Snake River Grill. Chef Kirt’s commitment to providing unique meals and experiences allows his customers to enjoy an excellent product produced in their own community,” Risch said.

Kirt Martin opened Snake River Grill in Hagerman in 1995, employing his expertise in French cooking to create memorable meals for his customers. Chef Kirt uses locally-sourced fish, game, and seasonal ingredients to create unique spins on Idaho classics like sturgeon and steelhead. He even hosts a wild game dinner each week to bring his patrons specialties they might not otherwise experience in a restaurant setting. Snake River Grill’s dedication to providing exceptional service and a one-of-a-kind culinary experience has made it a staple of the Hagerman community for more than two decades.

“I would like to extend my sincerest congratulations to Chef Kirt Martin, his wife Carol, and to the employees of Snake River Grill for being selected as the July 2019 Idaho Small Business of the Month,” Risch said. “You make our great State proud, and I look forward to watching your continued growth and success.”
