In 1969 we started our first restaurant in Tigard Oregon. It was the first of 13 Chalet Pancake and Pie House’s. Don took the two-week vacation pay from his truck driving position and bought change for the cash register. Evelyn quit her government job and worked in the office managing the books! She was very shy (and still is) and didn’t like working out on the floor. Don would often sleep on a cot in the basement to rest before his next shift….sometimes all night. It was four years before we could afford to hire a manager. We even raised some of our own help! All three of our children worked in the restaurant. Our two daughters are still here and our son took after his Dad and is a truck driver in Spokane Washington. We now have 10 grandchildren and nine great grand kids and are waiting for more. In 1985 we started “Millers Homestead.”
Our goal has been to make your experience and time with us pleasant and enjoyable. Please keep telling others if you like us, and be sure to tell us if there is a problem so we can make it right!
THANK YOU so much for your patronage.
