WAUPUN — Ver Hage’s Furniture held a “grand reopening” ribbon cutting last Thursday, with the help of Envision Greater Fond du Lac.

Earlier this year, former owner Alan Ver Hage announced that he sold the business to two of his long-time employees—Luke and Logan Ganz—after 50 years in the furniture business. The Ganz brothers were born and raised in Waupun, attending CWC. Luke worked at Ver Hage’s for ten years and Logan for six.

“Thank you very much everybody for coming and attending our big weekend here,” Luke Ganz said before the ribbon cutting. “The business just celebrated 50 years in business in the community last week and we’re looking to continue that tradition and continue to grow. We really enjoy the community and what the community has to offer. And we enjoy seeing how the community is starting to thrive and all the new businesses and stuff like that that are coming and we love to be a part of that. We’re excited for the future and I’m just really excited for this opportunity and we’ve just been extremely blessed. So thank you very much everybody for attending.”

Following the ribbon cutting, Envision Greater Fond du Lac presented the Ganz brothers with a Special Recognition Award for their growth and contributions to the regional business community.

The event was held in the Ver Hage’s showroom, with new lettering which states “Ganz’s Gallery.”

Attendees included many members of the Waupun business community, Mayor of Waupun Rohn Bishop, and City Alderman Dan Siebers.
