FRANKENMUTH, MI – February 11, 2010 – Zehnder’s of Frankenmuth, the 1,500 seat family restaurant located in Frankenmuth, Mich., has received numerous honors during its 150 year plus history. The latest mark of distinction was bestowed upon Zehnder’s by Nations Restaurant News (NRN) in their January 25, 2010 edition in an article entitled, “All American Icons.” According to NRN, they focused on the 50 restaurants nationwide that “stole our hearts and stood the test of time.” Not only did Zehnder’s make the nationwide list as one of the top 50 restaurant icons, it was the only Michigan restaurant chosen by NRN editors.
“We had no idea that Zehnder’s was going to be part of this prestigious list and we are very proud. We could not do it without our family of dedicated employees who have helped keep our traditions strong and true. Over the years, we have experienced great highs and challenging economic periods. Through it all, our employees expect and deserve a quality experience and we make it our business to deliver the best food, service and hospitality every day.” said Zehnder’s Chairman and CEO, Al Zehnder.
In April 2009, Restaurants & Institutions, another restaurant trade publication, ranked Zehnder’s the number one independent restaurant in the country serving 966,835 meals in 2008. It was the third consecutive year for the top honor.
