A popular Mid-Michigan restaurant is among one of the top ranked in the country.

Zehnder’s of Frankenmuth has been ranked number two in the country for the number of meals served to families in the United States in 2015, according to Restaurant Business magazine.

Last year, the popular family restaurant served 967,298 guests with a check average of $14.

Zehnder’s was also ranked number one in the state of Michigan with totals sales above $14,800,000.

“The restaurants in this year’s Top 100 Independents ranking had total food and beverage revenues of roughly $1.8 billion in 2015. It’s a number in focus, especially amid chain restaurants’ current state of slumping sales. Yet independents aren’t without their own challenges—labor top among them. Those that endure are an example to all operators that being nimble, resilient and thoughtful about guests and employees is a formula fit for the times,” the Restaurant Business reported.

Zehnder’s is known for its popular all-you-can-eat family-style chicken dinners.

The restaurant opened on Mother’s Day in 1929 and served 312 chicken dinners at $1 each.
