Still in search of the right bakery to fit your budget and timeline? Consider a wedding day creation from Frankenmuth Kroger, or try its neighbor just up North Main Street – Tim Horton’s – where an endless variety of ice cream flavors and “mixins” come together with any of three cake options for an ice cream cake that’ll bring the best of both worlds to your guests!


Bavarian Inn Restaurant and Zehnder’s of Frankenmuth

Even if you’re not hosting your happily ever after with one of these Frankenmuth favorites as your venue, you can still enjoy their signature flavors on your special day with off-site catering!

When you choose Bavarian Inn Restaurant’s 100+ years of experience in planning and preparing menus, you’re choosing stress-free, affordable luxury for your wedding day. Just select your service package based on your reception style and the level of help you need, then move on to all the mouthwatering details left to decide, like: signature Frankenmuth chicken or hand-carved, slow-roasted prime rib? Genuine German spätzle or garlic mashed potatoes? Here, the choices are endless (and endlessly delicious!).

Or, opt for the out-of-this world, off-site catering served up by Zehnder’s of Frankenmuth, where you can also choose from several tiers of service, all the way from drop-off catering to a full-service affair. Here, catered dinner buffets can include the likes of seasonal stuffed chicken breast and house-made meatballs, paired with show-stealing sides like German buttered noodles with cracker crumble topping and mashed potatoes with chicken gravy. But, rest assured – when you choose either of these giants of German cuisine to cater your wedding reception, you can always rely on the signature, world-famous fried chicken and authentic German sides you’ve come to know and love here in Frankenmuth!
