The holiday season always seem to sneak up on me. Summer seems too short; then all of a sudden school starts. The fall color season arrives and then pretty soon Christmas decorations start to go up in Frankenmuth. Thanksgiving arrives and then the Christmas season is in full swing.
Zehnder’s of Frankenmuth, the 1,500 seat family restaurant located in Frankenmuth, Mich., was ranked number two in the country in the number of meals served among all US independent restaurants according to the hospitality trade, Restaurant Business magazine. The popular family restaurant served 967,298 guests with a guest check average of $14 in 2015. Last year Zehnder’s also ranked #1 in the number of guests served among independent Michigan restaurants; 2015 total sales registered at $14,802,943.
When Walter and Maria Palmer came to Frankenmuth in the early 1970’s, they were in search of a community in which they could establish a lodging business. They were introduced to Wally Bronner and eventually purchased a piece of property from him on the south side of Frankenmuth, just north of the famous Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland.
The fall also represents that time of year where families begin their plans for Halloween. Kids start talking about what candy and treats they will get, what costume will they wear and parents just want a fun, safe environment for trick or treating. Well here at Zehnder’s Splash Village, our “Halloween Bash at Splash” on October 21st-22nd and 28th-29th offers a great time for young and old alike.
