Star-100 Contest Winner

Oldest Unit in Operation Contest Winner - Rupp's Downtown Sheboygan, WI

Smithville, TN (December 1, 2021) – Star Holdings Group has announced Rupp’s in downtown Sheboygan, Wisconsin the winner of our “Star’s Oldest Unit in Operation Contest” held in honor of Star’s 100th Anniversary in 2021. 

The contest, (launched January 2020), set out to find the oldest piece of Star commercial cooking equipment currently in-use in a foodservice operation with a cash prize of $1,921 awarded to both the winning restaurant operator (Sandra Rupp), and associated equipment rep (Walter Kirkoff, Specialized). Rupp’s winning oldest piece of equipment submission was a pair of 40-year-old electric Star griddles manufactured in 1981 and still in use today (model 154CHS).

Rupp’s Downtown is a traditional supper club that has served classic food and drinks to the people of Sheboygan since 1979 when Sandra Rupp and her late husband (and Rupp’s beloved founder) Richard Rupp started the restaurant on 925 North 8th Street. The employees at Rupp’s have an average tenure of 15-years and the operations are truly a family affair. The contest-winning griddles have seen some high-volume use. Rupp’s was serving up lunch and dinner 7-days-a-week up until 2019 when founder Richard passed away. Rupp’s most recently offered carry-out during COVID and is still going strong serving dinner to the folks of Sheyboygan 7-days a week.
