The application was filed on October 16, 2019. The application lists the trade/business name of the establishment as Wyoming’s Rib & Chop House.

Rib & Chop House has built restaurants in a number of Wyoming cities, including Cheyenne, Gillette, Sheridan and Laramie. The Bozeman-based company also operates restaurants in Colorado, Montana and Utah, according to their website.

The C85 Wonder Bar closed in early February this year. It had reopened in 2017 with a complete gut remodel after being purchased by the Cercy family. It had operated as the Wonder Bar off and on at that location since the early-1930s.
