Treat Mom to a Special Mother’s Day Celebration at Zehnder’s

In 1928, William Zehnder, Sr. purchased the Exchange Hotel in Frankenmuth by trading his farm and borrowing $4,000. He remodeled the hotel to give it the look of Mt. Vernon, the home of George Washington, and renamed it Zehnder’s of Frankenmuth. Zehnder’s opened on Mother’s Day in 1929 when diners were served 312 Family Style Chicken Dinners. Since that day, millions of guests have visited Zehnder’s of Frankenmuth making it the largest family restaurant in America. Mother’s Day continues to be one of Zehnder’s most popular days, serving more than 4,000 people in its nine dining rooms along with 275 pounds of prime rib, 700 pounds of fried shrimp, 1,500 pounds of mashed potatoes and about 1,350 chickens! Zehnder’s signature entree, the famous family Style Chicken Dinner, continues to be the number one favorite among guests, however, the special Mother’s Day menu features several choices for all tastes. All Moms who dine with us will receive a free loaf of Zehnder’s Sandwich White Bread!
