The owner of The Hillsboro Cafe made an impassioned plea to the Hillsboro Business Association on Wednesday to help recruit more people to town to address an employee shortage at the restaurant.

Kate Ehnert said she has been advertising for four months to find additional cooks without success.

“I have two cooks and there is no one in this town I can hire right now,” she said.

Ehnert and her husband, Derek, opened the cafe inside the former Our Town Bakery building at 3 N. Main St. in Hillsboro two years ago after moving to the city from Plymouth, Minn.
