Zingerman’s Celebrates 40 years with a fundraiser, new book

Tuesday marks a milestone for deli-lovers all throughout the city of Ann Arbor: 40 years of Zingerman’s Delicatessen. Zingerman’s Community of Businesses — which has expanded to include Zingerman’s Bakehouse, Zingerman’s Coffee Co. and Zingerman’s Creamery, among others — is commemorating the 40 year anniversary of its flagship with a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley.

As part of the anniversary celebrations, Ann Arbor-based author Micheline Maynard released her new book, “Satisfaction Guaranteed,” on Feb. 22. The book explores Zingerman’s 40-year history and the business’ impact on Ann Arbor and beyond.

Since opening Zingerman’s Delicatessen in 1982, co-founders Ari Weinzweig and Paul Saginaw have expanded, adding 14 businesses across Southeast Michigan. Both recent University of Michigan graduates at the time, the pair thought Ann Arbor was lacking a quintessential taste of traditional Jewish deli.
