Heini’s Cheese Chalet

Our Grandfather, John (Hans) Dauwalder, trained as a master cheesemaker in Switzerland.

In 1948, he and wife Lili sold the family farm in Switzerland to join John’s brother Crist in the US. Crist had purchased Bunker Hill Cheese and asked John to help him build the family business.

Today it is one of the premier cheese retailers east of the Mississippi, and one of the most successful wholesale manufacturers in the US.

He knew once the final draft was done that it would be a big seller, and was nervous he’d sell the design and see it everywhere and think he should have worked out a better deal. So he kept the design and bought Since taking the leap and going into business for himself, Michael has learned a lot and expanded his inventory to include the many designs that are currently available on today.
