This week’s episode brought us to a great downtown Waterloo establishment, Volks Haus. Hospitality is a family tradition for the Dotzlers, who own and operate Volks Haus. They’ve traced their family’s involvement in hospitality all the way back to the 1850’s in Germany. There’s a national restaurant chain that uses the phrase, “When you’re here, you’re family.” That’s not just a saying or marketing slogan at Volks Haus. Customers are part of the family, and the entire family helps operate the business. We met members of the actual family, and we met customers who are now extended family, as well during our visit.
There are a few things we learned about that we didn’t have opportunity to discuss more in this week’s episode.
If you’ve been to Volks Haus, you know that it is one of the most warm and welcoming places you’ll go to grab a drink, whether it is coffee in the morning with the regulars or a German beer in the afternoon. If you’ve not been to Volks Haus, certainly Saturday night is a great time to check it out. #IDigWaterloo because of places like Volks Haus where everyone is welcome and everyone is family.
