She started out with a food truck and then built it up to a restaurant. And it's a restaurant that's well-loved in the community. And she has done a lot of community service,"

After winning the award, Ariane also chatted with the Wyoming Public Media and this is how she feels about the award, "this is really awesome because it means that people have noticed we are trying to do something really special in our restaurant.
