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.

This story will be updated as new information becomes available.

    She’s all pissed that she has to finally pay a living wage to her employees. For a while she had a sign up about raising prices because she has to pay higher wages.

    Her milkshakes bring all the boys to the yard. Damn right she has to charge. I could teach you but her scoops too large
