As owner and operator of Village Inn, Bakers Square and Max & Erma's restaurants, American Blue Ribbon Holdings, LLC of Denver, Colorado is in the business of satisfying guests' hunger for life's simple pleasures.
Since 1958 when the first Village Inn Pancake House opened, families have known they can expect their favorite home-style meals from extra-friendly servers in a sparkling clean and comfortable setting.
Today corporate and franchise Village Inn locations are concentrated in the Rocky Mountain region, the Midwest, Arizona and Florida. Village Inn's heritage of hearty, wholesome breakfasts made with the best ingredients and served with our famous buttermilk pancakes, carries over to a full menu of lunch and dinner offerings, as well.
In the early 80s Village Inn Pancake House became publicly owned and changed its name to VICORP Restaurants, Inc. When VICORP acquired a restaurant company and its bakeries, a new legacy was born - Bakers Square and award-winning pie. Bakers Square serves The Best Pie in America® - pies that were awarded top honors at the National Pie Championships over the last several years.
With locations in the Upper Midwest, Bakers Square is the destination for guests who wish to enjoy everyday occasions, creative and unique fare such as focaccia sandwiches and stir-fry pitas or a slice of blue-ribbon pie.
Legendary Baking, our pie production facilities, bakes nearly 12 million pies a year for Village Inn, Bakers Square and J. Horner's, a frozen pie line for outside sales. Now in our fifth decade of success, we've restructured and are beginning a new era with a stable foundation. Our new name, American Blue Ribbon Holdings, LLC, symbolizes our pride in the quality and service we provide our guests.
In an industry where concepts quickly come and go, we're proud of our longevity. And we're proud that we continue to satisfy our guests' hunger for life's simple pleasures.
