It’s very rare that you find a team of culinarians that work together to uphold the original integrity of a foodservice venue. Dining at a restaurant that is still run by the same manager or chef for nearly twenty years is virtually unheard of. That’s why we chose to do this month’s Chef Feature at the Guenther House in the first place. Donna Vaughn and crew are dedicated to preserving all of the original aspects of the restaurant and the mill. “They are very focused on consistency and it really pays off,” commented one restaurant guest. It’s obvious that each individual takes great pride in what they do at the Guenther House and that’s why we wanted to recognize all of them this month.

The Guenther House restaurant has been open for more than 90 years and still features dishes that are based on the original mill. Pioneer products are still used in all of the buttery biscuits, delicious pastries, and to-die-for waffles. “Just give me the waffles!” exclaimed one guest. They obviously still cause a lot of excitement to this day. Donna even informed us that our sales guys don’t ever leave their venue without having the waffles. “They insist on them,” she said, “They don’t even take a breath while eating them. I always have to remind them to breathe.”

What’s even more amazing about the venue is the fact that all of the employees remember their guests by name, know where they want to sit, and have drinks ready instantly. There are tons of regulars at the Guenther House, which has helped to keep it busy even during tough economic times. The second that one of their regular guests walks in the door Donna is there to greet them with a hug and a smile. She really has a lot of love for the guests, the venue, and the food. She is a brilliant lady and is spilling over with energy despite the million different tasks she has to attend to. “I’ve been here a really long time,” she told us, “but I love this place. There is so much history here.” She couldn’t be more right. The Guenther House has been in the same family from the beginning, has used the same quality ingredients for decades, and continues to sell their Pioneer products to dozens of companies and the public.
