West Bend, IA (KICD) — Governor Branstad visited West Bend.

Country Maid, Inc., makers of the famous Butter Braid pastries hosted Governor Branstad at their state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in West Bend Wednesday afternoon. This visit was made possible with help from the Kossuth/Palo Alto Economic Development Corporation.

The Governor spent the afternoon meeting employees and learning more about the company and the products made. During the plant tour, the Governor even tried his hand at braiding pastry dough on the production line, which he says is harder than it looks.

Following the tour, Branstad spoke with employees about programs and incentives his office has developed to attract sustainable businesses to Iowa and also help small businesses such as Country Maid grow.
