Zingerman's orders up year 25
Kerrytown deli turned phenomenon celebrates a
quarter-century selling sandwiches, cheeses and bread
By DANIELLE KRUIZENGA
Entering Zingerman's for the
first time has a tendency to be a bit
overwhelming for some. It is diffi-
cult to find an inch of space in the
25-year-old deli that isn't covered
with a vast selection of expensive
meats and cheeses. A parton's view
of the hanging menu listing doz-
ens of sandwiches may be blocked
by Zingerman's co-founder Ari
Weinzweig. At 6 feet 4 inches tall,

Weinzweig can sometimes be
found offering free samples of
prosciutto, chatting with custom-
ers and instructing employees,
but don't let him distract you from
deciding between a #18 sandwich
or a #20 sandwich (hint: the only
difference is that one is grilled).
Weinzweig might be standing a
bit taller today, as he and co-found-
er Paul Saginaw celebrate the deli's
In the quarter-century since
Zingerman's opened its doors on
Detroit Street in Kerrytown, the
founders have expanded their busi-
ness to include a bakery, creamery,
sit-down restaurant, catering ser-
vices and mail-order website.

Ann Arbor resident Don Solo-
mon said he has been a customer
since opening day 25 years ago.
"No matter where I go in the

man's," Solomon said. "Or they ask
me to bring them a sandwich next

"In 1994, they went against
the opinions of their bankers and
lawyers when they chose not to
franchise," said Managing Part-
ner Grace Singleton, who joined
Zingerman's nearly five years ago.
"They stuck to their core values
and took the path less traveled."
On opening day in 1982, the Reu-
ben sandwich cost $5 - or about
$10.50 in today dollars. Now, the
Reuben costs about $11.99. That
is, except for today, when the deli

It's not just the sandwiches that
are expensive, either.
Earlier this month, a University
Law School student group held its
annual charity auction. One of the
items for sale was the chance to
have a Zingerman's sandwich tem-
porarily named after the winner.
The right to name a Zingerman's
sandwich sold for nearly $700,
despite the fact the name will only
become permanent if sales of the
new sandwich are successful.
