Week of Hope offers message to churches


Bill Moore spent much of his career in radio, but he went into trucking because he wanted to see the country. When he got tired of life on the road, he looked to fill a need in Loretto.

“I’ve done a little bit of everything,” he said. “I saw that Loretto needed a good country cafe, and boy did they get it.”

He and co-owner Pam Morris opened The Mustang Country Cafe in July 2011. It was an instant hit. He says the restaurant, which now sits about a quarter of a mile down Lexington Highway at 412 E. Main St., is famous for its hamburger steaks. 

A battle with cancer that has slowed Moore down some compounded with the COVID-19 pandemic that has forced them to temporarily close the dining room have caused business to ebb. The restaurant is now open only for drive-thru and takeout — plus the personal food deliveries Moore makes to the elderly in Loretto. But he is optimistic and has big plans to come back strong in the fall with a new and improved menu. He plans to include more seafood, and they recently added pizza to the list of offerings, which Moore says has been a huge success.

“That has really taken off,” he says. “We may even start delivering pizza in the fall to people in Loretto.”

The Mustang Country Cafe has phone service and fiber internet with Loretto Telecom, which Moore says he is extremely happy with. The free Wi-Fi is a great service for guests, plus the broadband network allows him to place online orders for food products and supplies.

“Loretto Telecom has been great to work with,” Moore says. “We have great service, and if there is ever a problem, I know they will take care of it.”

Moore says he also loves Loretto Telecom’s dedication to local businesses.

“Loretto Telecom General Manager Jason Shelton is one of my best customers, and I hope that never changes,” he says.
