A&W Restaurant

Bill and Kim Strohkirch
Midland, Michigan

Bill and Kim Strohkirch have owned and operated an A&W Restaurant in Standish since 1979. They also manage five Little Caesar's Pizza locations in the Midland area. Having such success and recognizing an opportunity, Bill and Kim constructed a new building and purchased new equipment for an A&W Restaurant in Midland. A&W features a menu of burgers, chicken sandwiches, Coney dog fries and onion rings. The signature item is a root beer float served on soft serve vanilla ice cream. YUMMY! With the help from MCDC and Citizens Bank this successful team was able to obtain a low fixed interest rate with only 10% down.
