In 1970, Bill Klemmer had a vision of becoming a restaurateur. Trusting in his own abilities, he resigned from his job and purchased a small restaurant that he and his wife Dorothy operated. As the business grew, so did his vision. In September of 1977, he and Dorothy opend the Williamsburg Inn Restaurant in Milwaukee. The success of their business grew due to the exceptional quality of food and outstanding service, none of which would have been possible without the long hours and hard work of Bill and Dorothy. To this day, they both continue to be an integral part of the daily workings of the business.
Inspired by Bill's vision, Dorothy, at the age of 51, emabarked on a new venture. Having cooked in both establishments, she decided to pursue a three year chef apprenticeship from Waukesha County Technical College. At the conclusion, she was certified, from the State of Wisconsin, as a chef. Not being satisfied with this new title, she went on to become certified as an executive chef by the American Culinary Federation.
Years later, Dorothy continues to be very involved in the Wisconsin Restaurant Association as well as the American Culinary Federation. In fact, in past years both organizations have honored her for her contributions. Some of these include:
