General Information:

J. Russel Bouws, founder, began operating his first restaurant in 1934 at twenty years of age. Here is his story: His father purchased "Doc's Barbeque" in Holland, Michigan for Russ to run. He graduated from Zeeland High School in 1932, his dream was to be a farmer. Had his egg business been profitable, he may never have gotten into the restaurant business. Due to the depression, eggs were selling for 12 cents a dozen, pork and beef for 8 cents a pound, and corn for 53 cents a bushel.

The chain is still going with 12 locations and the full story is on their website.
