How long have you worked for Lunds and Byerly’s?
16 years.



What led to your interest in cooking and product development?
Ever since I was a little boy, I have always been fascinated by how things are made. Growing up, I was always taking things apart to figure out what would make them do what they do. I lived on a dairy farm west of the Twin Cities and come from a fairly large German family. Anytime we had a family gathering, there was an amazing assortment of dishes and desserts – of course I had to know how to make them all.

My mother was truly my inspiration, as well as my grandmothers. I was always amazed how they could just throw together a dish and make it taste amazing. So I started watching them, creating my own experiments and I’ve been cooking ever since.

How long have you worked for Lunds and Byerly’s?
Since 1982 – that’s 30 years! I worked four years at Byerly’s Ridgedale, 10 years at Lunds Bloomington, four years at Byerly’s Edina and 12 years at Byerly’s St. Louis Park.



What led to your interest in the deli?
I worked at a deli for 8 years in high school and college. I realized I wanted to work for the best and be a manager, so I went to Byerly’s for their training programs and leadership opportunities.
