Jeff Lobdell, owner of the Beltline Bar Famous Mexican Café in Grand Rapids, was awarded the Michigan Restaurant Association Distinguished Service Award, this year in Bay Harbor.
“It is a tremendous honor to be recognized by the Michigan Restaurant Association, an organization that is very near and dear to my heart,” says Lobdell.
Lobdell was first selected to the board of directors in 2002 and served as treasurer, vice chairman, and chairman of the board. He currently serves as a board member of the National Restaurant Association and Michigan Restaurant and Lodging Fund.
