We’ve had our fair share of technology issues in our 80-year history. In the early 1980s, we had an optical scanning system. The technology scanned restaurant orders from a special sheet of paper by recognizing the presence of a pencil mark made by employees, not too different from the Scantron system many colleges use to score tests.

But we had issues processing orders. If there was even a spot of grease on the paper, the scanning technology would not be able to read the order requests.

“That technology was not the wave of the future,” says Michael Weber, vice president of Weber’s. “It ended up flopping. It was a disaster.”

We’ve been operating since before digital computers were invented. Weber’s originally tracked purchases and inventory by hand.

“As an entrepreneur, you have to pay attention to different technology trends and how people want to spend their money,” Weber said. “It will put your business ahead of others. Whenever you’re dealing with new technology, you want to try to see into the future and go with what will still be relevant in 10 years,” said Weber.

Working for Weber’s is a tradition for family!

When did you realize running the family business was your destiny?

We were born into it. Growing up, whenever there was a breakfast or dinner and we were at the kitchen table we were hearing what was going on at work and the issues of the day. My parents worked there every day. My sister and I, when we were 10 years old, we started working in the business. As time went on, it just seemed natural that I’d want to continue it.

Two of your sons are in the business now. Will you sell to them? Is Weber’s their inheritance?

There certainly is a need for them to get ownership in the business and we’re working in that direction.

So they want to take over the business?

Yes. It’s to the point now, we’re into the third generation and there’s a lot of pride in understanding how few family-run businesses last that long and how everything is being brought up by the real estate investment trusts. Basically, we just have a stubborn independence to make Weber’s a pertinent place in Ann Arbor.

Do you have a succession plan?

Yes, we do. Right now, we’re developing Michael and Brian. Michael has been with the business six years, and Brian just came back six months ago. They are young, smart and eager.
