The Wanigan in Bay City has been a Deli staple in the community since 1986 when it's first owner, Jack Panzer opened it, serving a wide variety of sandwich combinations, soups and salads. Jack's sister, Eva Panzer-Foster, later took it over. The Pelletiers, Greg and Katherine, then purchased the deli in 1998 and operated it for seventeen years, when they chose to retire in October of 2014.
The current owners, Mike Dufresne of Essexville and David Faerber of Saginaw Township, took over as the new owners of the Wanigan on October 20, 2014. The pair initially planned to open their own deli, but when they heard that the Wanigan was for sale, they knew this was the right choice. The taste of the food and the quality ingredients that are used to make the sandwiches, soups and salads were what drew them to the establishment.
They and the staff, welcome you to The Wanigan for breakfast or lunch. The Wanigan is open from 7:30 a.m. - 10:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
