In 1984, Jerry came home from managing the Zurich arena and announced to his wife Brenda that he was going to quit his job and build a shop with a kitchen behind their home in Zurich. 

 

Jerry's love for entertaining and cooking was his inspiration for his dream - to start a catering company. With the help of family and friends, construction of the shop began.

 

As more customers began requesting Jerry's homestyle cooking on a regular basis, and purchasing meat pies and salads out of the small shop, Jerry and Brenda decided to take what was now their joint dream, to a new level. In 1996 they built in Zurich, which is now home to the main kitchen and a store-front.

 

Sadly, after a long and courageous battle with cancer, Brenda passed away in 2012. Jerry stepped back from the daily operations of the business and together their children Cam, Jaclyn & Deryk stepped up to run the family business. This next generation of Jerry Rader's has welcomed growth - having opened a location in Goderich, ON.

 

The shop where it all started!
