Buehler’s Debuts Chef’s Kitchen Prepared Foods And Dining Area

The Chef's Kitchen

Wooster, Ohio, now boasts a new food service concept inside Buehler’s Milltown location offering an array of fresh chef-prepared foods available for take out or dine-in. Customers place their order at the Chef’s Kitchen counter, pay at the separate food service register and then choose to take their meals home or dine in-store in the all new Kitchen Table casual dining area.

Chef’s Kitchen offers classic favorites and meals made to order while shoppers watch. Options include freshly made hand-stretched pizza (whole or by the slice) baked in a brick oven, custom signature sandwiches made with fresh-baked breads from the bakery and authentic wok-fired Chinese foods.

Shoppers also may select combinations from the freshly prepared Chef’s Signature entrees, including Asiago chicken, ribs, pulled pork and more, and sides dishes such as Loaded Twice Baked Potatoes, broccoli slaw and more.

There also are six varieties of hot soups made from scratch, an expanded fresh salad bar and sushi rolled by hand daily by in-store sushi chefs.

The Kitchen Table area offers a relaxed atmosphere for dining. It has a self-serve drink area that features a Coca-Cola Freestyle machine with more than 100 choices to mix and match. Scenic River Coffee flavors, tea, as well as extensive options of bottled beverages are available as well.

“The key is the customer. Customers are in control,” said Buehler’s Wooster Milltown Store Manager Jack Kerby. “Unlike traditional restaurants, here you select the amount of food you want, so you’re not paying for food you don’t want, and there’s no tipping. What a value.”

A remodel at Buehler’s Milltown is nearing completion and a grand opening scheduled for Nov. 5.

E&H Family Group owns and operates 15 Buehler’s Fresh Foods supermarkets located in Wooster, Orrville, Wadsworth, Medina, Brunswick, Ashland, New Philadelphia, Dover, Jackson Township, Delaware, Coshocton, Portage Lakes (Green) and Massillon, Ohio. E&H Family Group also owns and operates 14 Ace Hardware stores.
