In 1966, our parents, Howard and Sarah Miller, opened a small restaurant, which would eventually be named Hartville Kitchen. While it was Dad’s vision to open a restaurant, Mom supported him whole-heartedly. She was often the first to arrive and the last to leave, making sure the floors were scrubbed and everything was in its place. As word spread of the delicious, home-style foods they served, the restaurant outgrew its original location.
Today Hartville Kitchen is part of a family-owned and operated group of businesses that includes Hartville Kitchen Salad Dressings, Hartville Collectibles Gift Shop, Hartville MarketPlace and Flea Market, Hartville Hardware and Hartville Tool.
While much has changed since our parents started Hartville Kitchen more than 54 years ago, we still adhere to the same values that guided them. We still serve the same quality homemade food using recipes passed down from our grandmother, Soloma Miller.
We appreciate our Mennonite heritage and strive to operate our businesses based on Christian principles. We are thankful for the many blessings God has given us and most of all, for his gift of salvation through Jesus Christ.
We sincerely hope you “Come Home to Hartville Kitchen,” where homestyle cooking and unique shopping experience meet.
