A background on your host and hostess- Bob & Geri Guyette
Bob Guyette is a native of Hortonville, a 1992 graduate of Hortonville High School, went on to college and graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Physical Fitness and a minor in Athletic Training. Geri (Johnson) Guyette is formally from Manawa-New London. She is a 1995 graduate of New London Senior High School.
Bob and Geri met in 1994, both sharing a very common interest, the restaurant business. Bob has been a part of the Black Otter since he was 11 years old. Geri had been a waitress since age 16 at a fine dining supper club nearby. The two of them were married in 1998, both employed at the Black Otter Supper Club. In April of 2003, their first son Austin was born six weeks premature. Not that having a premature baby wasn't a big enough challenge at the age of 29, Bob and Geri bought the Black Otter two months later on July 1, 2003. As the years went on, their business was growing rapidly. In 2006, their second son, Preston, was born five weeks premature. In the fall of 2007, the couple took on an even larger challenge, the beautiful and much needed addition. They never had dreamed it would look so amazing. In October of 2010, they welcomed their third son, Jensen, who was a full term baby. They are so grateful for the support of all their customers and employees. Thank you! They truly owe their outstanding employees an unbelievable amount of thanks for their dedication, loyalty and hard work over the years. Without them, the Black Otter wouldn't be where it is today! Great job team!
As for Bob, he works at UPS in Oshkosh, owns Mow, Blow, and Go Lawn Care, is a partner in a deer farm, and manages the dining area on the weekends. In his spare time, he DJ's a few times a year.
Geri takes much pride in being your full time head cook six nights a week, also running a very large staff, ordering and bookkeeping.
In their spare time, as a family they love to use their wave runners out on the lake, snowmobile, camp during the day and work at night, take the boys to T-Ball, karate, basketball, etc. "Our boys really keep us running. We wouldn't have it any other way."
Hopefully you learned a little bit about your hosts and continue to enjoy great food and our wonderful staff.
