Hill Diner and Dixie Grill - Los Alamos Star Client for 2013.

Denise Lane started the Hill Diner twenty-seven years ago. The business has grown to become part of the fabric of Los Alamos, both as an eating and meeting spot and as the first experience in the working world for more than 400 high school students. The Hill Diner is where people go when they are craving comfort food in a family-friendly environment. In the midst of the tough 2012 economy, Ms. Lane expanded to establish a new restaurant, Dixie Girl.

“Our relationship with the [Los Alamos] SBDC goes way back,” according to Ms. Lane. “We have sought and received assistance on a variety of business issues over the years. Dixie Girl was an idea that was five years in the making ….”

In 2011, Ms. Lane participated in a Destination Retail initiative facilitated by the SBDC in partnership with the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce. Ms. Lane enthusiastically says “I would have to say that the experience was life changing in terms of how I now think about positioning my businesses.”
