Discover Hi-Ho’s Story

For more than 70 years, we’ve been serving the best food and drinks in the friendliest atmosphere around. Learn about our humble beginnings with Glenn Tollefson.


We don’t know exactly what made Glenn piece two and two together. Maybe he liked the connection the crackers had to the Seven Dwarfs’ catchy tune. Maybe he liked that the crackers’ tagline back then was “for finer flavor!” Maybe he just wanted to pay homage to his favorite snack — and if that’s the case, we’re lucky old Glenn didn’t prefer Beardsley’s Shredded Codfish Cakes. Whatever his exact reason for choosing the name might have been, Glenn was all set to open up the original Hi-Ho Burgers & Brews in Dilworth, MN in 1947.
