Mackenthun’s Recognized by State House for 100 Years of Service
Waconia’s Mackenthun’s Fine Foods was recently recognized on the Minnesota House of Representatives floor for its many years of service.
According to the Sun Patriot, Mackenthun’s has been part of the community for 100 years, and Rep. Jim Nash (R-Waconia) presented the Mackenthun family with a House Resolution to commemorate the milestone.
Not only has Mackenthun’s been in business for 100 years, but its also the longest-running grocery organization in the history of Minnesota, the article said.
“[The business dates] back to the 1900’s when August Mackenthun opened his meat market in Plato,” the newspaper reported. “August’s son, Arthur, left Plato in 1917 headed to Waconia to open what we know today as Mackenthun’s Fine Foods.”
Jaime Mackenthun and Jessa Mackenthun Theis, fifth generation co-owners of the business, were on-hand to accept the resolution from Nash.
