Ribbon Cuttings


The Newkirk Chamber held two ribbon cuttings recently for 2 of our new businesses–Stagecoach Bar-b-que and R L Photography.

Stagecoach Bar-b-que

Founded by Vance and Debra Johnson in 1998, Stagecoach Catering and Barbeque is now owned by daughter, Carrie Grace.  Stagecoach serves award-winning barbeque and has the ribbons and plaques to prove it.

Grace said the eatery also serves a great variety of side dishes, and delicious homemade ice cream and cake.  She added that their down-home country exterior continues inside, along with a big serving of country hospitality.

On Friday nights, the Stagecoach serves all-you-can-eat catfish and ribs, and on Saturday, hand-cut aged ribeye steaks in addition to their barbeque choices.  Stagecoach also does full-service catering, both at the restaurant and on-site.  The menu is not limited to just barbeque.  Grace said they can provide a wide variety of food for just about any occasion.  For more information, call (580) 362-3082.

R  L Photography

According to owner Tammy Ross, R L Photography is a full-service studio that provides service for wedding, senior, commercial, portrait, newborn and maternity photography.

Ross received her photography degree from Northern Oklahoma College and her business degree from NWOSU.  She is a member of Professional Photographers of  America and continues education to keep current with today’s technology and trends.

“I have been in business since 2000, and worked out of my home until this year when I opened the studio in Newkirk,” said Ross.  “I feel very welcomed by the Newkirk community and business is growing wonderfully.  Newkirk is an awesome community and I am very proud to be part of it.”
