Hi, my name is Jodie Frankl and I am the publisher of BeLocal Minot! I am so glad you are here! If I could sum my role in BeLocal Minot in one word, it would be "connector." I want to connect newcomers to all the great things Minot and the surrounding area has to offer while also providing long-time residents with information, ideas, and meaningful relationship opportunities for all.

BeLocal Minot is a guide to all things Minot – written by locals, for locals (whether you're new in town or have always lived here). Welcome to the best Minot has to offer!

From your guide to local coffee shops to city services and local activities to winter weather gear, BeLocal Minot is here to be your source for all things Minot-related. Through print publication and various social media presences, BeLocal Minot hopes to bring content that helps not only our newest community members but also those who have called Minot home for generations.

Grab a print publication at Visit Minot, check us out online, and follow us on Instagram or Facebook.
