From MLive Dec 2010:
Sehler’s Drive-In opened on Oct 15, 1960 as a family business owned by Tom and Dorothy Sehler. All six of their children – Alice, Ruth, Carolyn, Larry, Margaret, and Joe – went to work there as soon as they were tall enough to reach the wrapping table. The Stehler family operated the restaurant for 10 years. An offer came in to franchise the operation which they turned down. Tom Sehler sold the restaurant to his bookkeepers. He opened another branch in Newaygo, which he eventually sold sometime before he passed away in 1986. The Wilson Avenue site was later occupied by a number of different restaurants, including the Burger Den, the Cactus Stand, a pizzeria, and most recently, Legend Grill Restaurant. But none fared as well as Sehler’s, and as the years went by, the property deteriorated. It was demolished in 2010.
