Built in the 1930's, this Kewpee is a classic diner. It seats around 50 patrons. Before they enlarged their parking lot, it featured a car turntable much like the Kewpee in Racine. Rather than backing out of the lot, a car would pull onto the turntable after which it could be manually turned around. This Kewpee also features the large Kewpie doll over the front door. A few years ago when it need refurbishing and was off the building for repairs, many customers complained that they missed its ever open eyes in Downtown, Lima.
Allentown Road - Kewpee West
This location seats about 125 patrons and is on the site of a former mansion. The carriage house still sits on the back of the property nestled among huge, old pine trees. Behind the building is a huge freezer with a dock for semi truck unloading. When they get a delivery of frys or pies, they take a whole semi load. This freezer supplies all 3 Lima stores.
Bellefontaine Road - Kewpee East
This Kewpee is a converted Robert Hall's Men's wear store. It seats about 185 people and on a busy Friday night during football season, they will sell 5000 burgers after the supper hour. This site also has a warehouse for storage of paper and other supplies for all three Lima stores.
Downtown Kewpee, Lansing, MI
is just a few blocks from the state capitol building. It features hand made etched glass Kewpie decorations on its doors and windows. The Lansing Kewpees have been in the Weston family for three generations. There is a second Kewpee in Lansing but I do not have a photo of it. If anyone has a photo and would send it to me I would be glad to include it on this site.
