  • Design Intent Architects - New Member


    From furrier to architecture firm, with a few other incarnations along the way, the building located at 103 East Lincoln Avenue in historic downtown is the perfect spot according to Scott DeMartelaere, President of Design Intent Architects. Scott had been looking for the right office on “main street” in Fergus Falls for some time. He’s done a beautiful job with the building’s façade and continues work in the interior, as well.  

    Design Intent designs both commercial and residential spaces working on everything from school security systems to lake homes; doing both new builds and remodels. DeMartelaere enjoys the challenge and variety of working with both businesses and homeowners to design a beautiful space that meets their needs. He is licensed in both Minnesota and North Dakota.

    You can find Design Intent on Facebook at www.facebook.com/pages/Design-Intent-Architects. You can contact Scott via email at scottd@di-arch.com or via phone at 218-736-4733.

    Don Pablos Mexican Family Restaurant - 10th Anniversary

    Don Pablos Family Mexican Restaurant recently celebrated their tenth anniversary and members of the Chamber’s Amabassador Team were lucky enough to be treated to some of their fair during a lunch-time visit. Over the years, owners Teresa and Jose Rodriguez have developed new recipes based on their heritage, but Teresa tells us that many of their dishes come from Jose’s family’s recipes. Teresa grew up in Fergus Falls, her parents were migrant workers in the area and also worked in Texas. During the early part of his career, Jose worked in Mexican restaurants throughout North and South Dakota.

    It was always Teresa’s dream to open a restaurant of their own and Jose’s experience (and family recipes) made that possible for them a little over ten years ago. One of the best parts of owning their own business says Teresa, “is helping employees move up” in their careers.

    When asked about their best-selling item, Teresa noted that Fajitas and Enchiladas are their biggest sellers, but when she talks about the Molcajete Especial for Two, she beams with pride as she talks about this “special” dish. Of course, we had to give it a try.

    Stop by Don Pablos at 108 East Lincoln Avenue for lunch or dinner, they are open Mon-Thu 11am to 10pm, Fri-Sat 11am to 11pm and Sun 11am to 9pm. You can reach them by phone at 218-998-6394. You can also find them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/donpablosfergusfalls.
