Olga’s Kitchen, an iconic Michigan brand owned and operated by Livonia-based TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants (TSFR), has signed the lease for a new location in Kalamazoo, further expanding its presence in West Michigan. Known for its secret recipe, grilled-to-order Olga bread, the new restaurant is part of TSFR’s strategic vision to revitalize the brand throughout the state.

Located at the intersection of Corner and Drake roads, the new 3,400-square-foot Olga’s Kitchen will feature the brand’s new design layout that is reflective of the brand and puts a greater emphasis on the kitchen. With this new design, guests will feel as though they are walking directly into an actual kitchen with views of their orders being placed and cooked to order by the team in real time. Slated to open in early 2019, the new Kalamazoo restaurant will create an additional 75 jobs to local residents with the potential of upward mobility.

Olga’s Kitchen is committed to leading the way in the restaurant industry by delivering a positively unique dining experience for our three-generations of loyal guests and beyond. As we continue our strategic vision to grow Olga’s Kitchen, we saw a tremendous opportunity to introduce our fresh and innovative culinary expertise to the greater Kalamazoo community. We look forward to offering our fresh, high-quality signature and seasonal menu items to local residents and becoming further engrained in the community as a dedicated corporate citizen.

Since purchasing the brand in late 2015, TSFR has invested in a complete revitalization of the iconic Olga’s Kitchen brand. As part of its strategic vision, TSFR unveiled the restaurant’s new design and layout in Clinton Township, Dearborn Heights, Livonia, Westland, Woodhaven and Lansing. Additionally, TSFR has built brand new locations in Monroe, Ann Arbor, Shelby Township, Chesterfield and Taylor.
