Ben Guenther – Upper Lake Grocery

When Ben Guenther and his partner moved to Upper Lake several years ago, he saw a unique opportunity to switch from hospitality to grocery ownership when the owners of Hi-Way Grocery, the town’s only grocery store, decided to retire.

Now called Upper Lake Grocery, the store serves the local community by offering daily necessities and various goods and services, including a fresh produce section, meat, and a sandwich Deli.
