It All Began in 1934…

When Win Schuler took over his family’s restaurant business and re-named the establishment “Win Schuler’s” he soon became known in restaurant circles as “the consummate host.” The well-liked owner was famous for the warm, friendly way he greeted his guests and for making them feel comfortable and welcome.

As the restaurant’s reputation for fine dining grew, so did its popularity. People were known to drive from all over the Midwest just for dinner. In fact, the restaurant was so popular long lines for a table became the norm.

Win realized that during this extensive wait to be seated people were building up ravenous appetites. So, as a gesture of hospitality, he did something unheard of in the restaurant trade. Upon being seated, diners were immediately rewarded for their patience with a  complimentary crock of Schuler’s own secret recipe of “Bar Scheeze,” a healthy portion of delicious meatballs in barbecue sauce and a warm loaf of fresh bread.

Diners literally ate it up — it was a brilliant idea that created a party-like atmosphere in the dining room and made people feel more like guests in Win’s home than patrons in a restaurant. “The Consummate Host” certainly lived up to his reputation.

As it turns out, the Bar Scheeze became a bigger hit than Win had anticipated. People liked the entrees at the restaurant, but it was the complimentary appetizers that had them talking. It was so well received that restaurant patrons were continually asking Win and his employees if there was any way they could buy some of the delicious Bar Scheeze to take home. The more Win thought about it, the more he liked the idea. So he decided to give the people what they wanted and the legend of Win Schuler’s Cheese Spreads has grown ever since.
