You might call this an outsider's inside view of what makes Zingerman's still stand out after forty years in the food world.
Author Micki Maynard is a longtime fan of Zingerman's and she's spent the last year putting her passion to good use. Through interviews with past and current employees as well as sharing Zingerman's actual visions for the future, Micki tackles the question: "What makes Zingerman's, Zingerman's?" from the business point of view.
If you're looking for lots of recipes for our signature dishes, this isn't the book for you—but we do have other options. But if you're looking for the actual documents that mean the most to the hundreds of people working around the Zingerman's Community of Businesses, this is the book for you. It's also the first book written about Zingerman's by someone that isn't an employee of Zingerman's so it's a first on many levels!
Hear the history of our community through the stories of the people who lived it. And maybe glean some business insights in the process.
Order the book online from Zingerman's Press or Literati Bookstore in Ann Arbor. Or if you're shopping in Ann Arbor, you could stop by Zingerman's Deli, Zingerman's Bakehouse, or Zingerman's Roadhouse to pick up a copy.
