Melanie & Erick Gerritson welcome you to Helen’s Kitchen, their family owned and operated business. John and Helen Aalpoel opened the restaurant in November of 1977. At that time they were located on Fond du Lac Street. Within a few years they had outgrown that location and moved to the Park View Plaza in February of 1980.
In 1986, the couple sold the restaurant to their daughter and her husband, Marilyn and Mike Ford. Marilyn and Mike ran the restaurant until 2014.
On May 18, 2014, the restaurant was sold to Mike and Marilyn’s daughter and her husband, Melanie & Erick Gerritson. Presently at the same location, they will continue the same family values John and Helen held when they opened the doors on that first day and throughout the 28 years that Marilyn and Mike held the reigns.
Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, and featuring Friday Night Fish Fry and Saturday Night All You Can Eat Chicken, this restaurant is a regular stop for many townspeople as well as those who just pass through time to time.
