Sixty Four Days Until Launch | Zehnder's of Frankenmuth

Sixty Four Days Until Launch

By Al Zehnder, CEO of Zehnder’s of Frankenmuth

I was having lunch in Z-Chef’s Café, on the lower level of Zehnder’s, the other day when I noticed one of our regular customers Eric. Eric travels throughout Michigan and I believe the Midwest as the marine insurance expert for a local insurance company.

I waved as I entered the Café and as I got closer, Eric said; “Sixty four days until launch Al.” Sixty four days until launch? I know I had that questioned look on my face like I didn’t know what he meant. He proceeded to say, “Just sixty four days until you can launch a boat.”

I get tired of winter, tired of the cold and I guess sixty four days seems like warm weather is just around the corner. Or maybe closer than you might imagine.
I just came from Splash Village. I like to walk each of our areas each day talking to guests and members of our team. Seeing what’s going on. My version of “management by walking around”. As I entered our new waterpark addition, Atrium Park, the completely glass structure provides a decidedly Spring-like atmosphere. The sun shining in, people in bathing suits and sunglasses. The warm moist air. People having fun in the water. Some taking a quick nap on one of the chaise lounges. Parents applying sunscreen to their kids. Yea, you can get a tan. And it’s 10 degrees outside.

It’s a great space. If you can’t wait for “sixty four days to launch”, experience a bit of summer at Zehnder’s Splash Village. Stay for the day or spend the evening.
Bring the sunscreen.

Hospitably Yours,

Al Zehnder, CEO of Zehnder’s of Frankenmuth

    I brought my family for our annual visit in February. It was a very welcome change from the winter and we had a great time. As always, we were treated to the great service and friendly smiles of the Zehnder’s staff. I’m really thinking about making another visit soon. It’s really cold out here and so warm in there.

    Great place to be.
