Q&A with Suzanne & Steve Francis, Owner
What sets your business apart from your competition?
Our products are made with quality select meats and our own homemade recipes to provide a healthier, satisfying choice for all ages. Our best advertisement is word of mouth. Great news travels fast.
What was the inspiration for starting this business?
We started processing deer in a one-car garage to make extra money for our growing family. We began making sausage to provide another option for our customers. Our sausage had pushed our side business over the top. We are now the largest deer processor in Michigan. We have expanded the business to selling our sausage, jerky, and smoked products in our retail store. We quickly grew into a booming family business, satisfying thousands of taste buds across Michigan. We also offer a full-service fresh meat counter, and we make 140 smoked and cooked products in our store.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
"I will never shop anywhere else. We trust Country Smoke House products like we trust our doctor."
What’s your favorite part about your job?
It's very rewarding to hear a customer say "I love your products". Or "I can't eat any other hot dog or brats but yours because I react to all the others." "I will drive 1000 miles to buy your snak stix and jerky—no one else's compares." These comments make it all worthwhile. It's very flattering that people love your "creation," and they eat it on the go or at their family holiday meal (smoked turkeys and hams).
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Our gift boxes are a huge hit.
Especially for those who don't know what to get someone for a gift. Once you give a County Smoke House gift box, they most likely will want another. Now you have made it easy for yourself to find a gift that they will always like. For example, a business owner bought his 180 employees a custom-made gift box and had a great response from his employees. He usually buys something different for them every year. He had chosen to give fruit baskets the next year. The employees expressed their strong opinions and requested CSH gift boxes from here on out. The owner told me he will never make that mistake again.
Juicy mangos, strawberries, pineapples, and limes aren't safe in the hands of Crushed Premium founder Roz Cordova. With her special knack for deliciously combining fruit, vegetables, and the occasional splash of milk—no sugar, preservatives, or synthetic cocktail umbrellas allowed—the result is smoothies like her classic strawberry banana, mango lemonade, pina colada, and kale-laced mango greenade varieties. She also brings her special recipes to corporate events and parties, where she blends them up on the spot for guests.
Nine flagsticks are strategically placed across 2,274 yards of fairways and greens lined by sand traps and water hazards, beckoning golfers to seek them out in a competitive spirit. The executive layout of Hampton Golf Club features six par 4s and three par 3s for a par-33 track that presents diverse challenges. Interconnected ponds and streams figure prominently on six holes, including the 316-yard fourth hole, which plays toward a green that has concealed itself behind the edge of a pond in a never-ending attempt to win a game of hide-and-seek with a local soccer field. Before rounds, guests can stock their bags with cold drinks, snacks, and course necessities such as tees, balls, and dueling gloves at the course pro shop.
