Happy 70th to Russ's Restaurants of West Michigan! Seen the following story both online and in todays local paper:
http://www.mlive.com/news/grpress/index.ssf?/base/news-16/1091355567199300.xml

Though not mentioned in the online story, the Grand Rapids Press reported the following facts:

Russ' 14 Restraunts in West Michigan combined, each year serve:

- 2.1 million cups of coffee
- 515,288 hamburgers
- 400,000 pieces of pie
- 115,578 muffins
- 89,000 pounds of hash browns
- 86,700 loaves of bread
- 65,765 gallons of soup
- 40,460 turkey sandwiches
- 17,260 gallons of salad dressing

Not bad starting out as a roadside stand!
