LEBANON, Missouri- A unique Lebanon dining mainstay and slice of Americana roadside food will celebrate 50 years in business.

Longtime employee Jaden Starnes says this Saturday, July 8th every item on the menu will be 50% off from 10:30 a.m until 2:30 p.m. “We’re celebrating our 50th year being open with unbeatable prices on amazing food, ice cream, and the best drinks around. It’s very rare to find these older restaurants that have been around since the mid 60’s with the same owners, as well as all of the original equipment used in the restaurant. It’s a big accomplishment, and we couldn’t have done it without all of the great customers! ”

Jaden Starnes, right.

“Swiss Inn Opened in 1967. This family owned restaurant has been serving awesome food to customers from all over the United States for 50 YEARS! I have been a part of the team for about 7 years now. There is no other job I’d rather have while attending school full time. The family owners are nice outstanding individuals. They have became a second family rather than employers. The fella I worked with today is a 4th generation family worker. All three grandkids work here as well. Not very often do you come across a family owned restaurant that has only had ONE owner. Lonnie and Judy both strive to keep the business running smoothly and have succeeded tremendously. Lonnie works 55-60 hours each and every week to make sure the food is fresh, along with the produce, the dairy products, and most importantly makes sure every costumer leaves satisfied. The family has been nothing but good to me as far as working around my busy schedule, and making this a fun working environment. A job doesn’t really seem like a “job” if you enjoy what you’re doing. Come see us sometime! Pictured below is Collin and I. The 4th generation grandson I had the pleasure of working with today!” Starnes said.
