Cougar Country Drive-In will not close

CHERYL AARNIO, Evergreen reporter

Rhonda Whit, Cougar Country Drive-In owner, confirmed that the restaurant will stay open, despite previous comments made by General Manager Richard Marshall.

Whit said she visited the restaurant yesterday to tell workers she was going to work again because she thinks there is a theft problem.

She said her accountant told her the numbers are not adding up and told Whit she should see if there is a thief.

She said she does not know who the thief is, but she has her suspicions.

Cougar Country won the Students’ Choice Awards on March 2018 for the city’s best burger and fries, according to the Evergreen. The restaurant has been in Pullman since 1973.
