Such a transition would also allow Gunnar to work a far more family-friendly schedule for the couple’s two young children. The late hours and weekend cater-ing tasks associated with The Establishment were not so conducive to that family life. Unfortunately, financing fell through for the buyers who had planned to take over the popular restaurant, but that simply resurrects a perfect opportunity for an entrepreneur eager to capitalize on the opportunity to serve hundreds of Whirlpool employees who will soon be working just a few steps away from the site of the restaurant when their new $65-million dollar riverfront cam-pus is erected. Ground breaking for that takes place this week when the company cel-ebrates the beginning of its 100th Anniversary in the appliance industry. Liz added that while the Olson’s miss their very loyal patrons, the start of Gunnar’s wine-making career has been a great move for their family.
