FRANKENMUTH, Mich. - Dec. 29, 2016 - PRLog -- The iconic Frankenmuth Bavarian Inn ( recently received a Succession Success Award as part of this year's Best of MichBusiness Awards. The Best of MichBusiness recognition event held earlier this month celebrates success at the most exciting and connected business awards and networking opportunity in Michigan. It is powered by MBPA, a statewide association with a sphere of influence that no other organization of its kind can claim, positively impacting more than 150,000 businesses —1 out of every 3 in the state.

Reflecting on the significance of this latest award, third generation owner and current
Bavarian Inn Restaurant President Bill Zehnder attributed the success of the Bavarian Inn to its strong family ties and dedication to future success, along with the commitment of hundreds of team members.

"My father often said, 'Family is everything,'" said Zehnder. "We continue to live and work by that philosophy. We have a shared history and moral code. We grew up together, worshiped, worked and played together. We truly cherish and respect each other. In business, we adhere to a creed based on our shared values and vision to pave the way for continued success."

The family, he said, sees work as an extension of a bond and a testimony to its:

·         strengths as a family-owned business

·         contributions to the community

·         commitment to family business best practices.
