Dear Valued Customers,

We are pleased to support the Governor's efforts to keep us healthy and safe amidst the Covid-19 outbreak. Therefore, all EMA restaurants will be closed until we are given the permission to reopen by the Governor's office.

We look forward to our return to serve you and continue our 15 year celebration of being a part of the wonderful Kalamazoo and Southwest Michigan Community!

Thank you and hope to welcome you back soon!


Mike & Jane Leeuw and the EMA Family



OUR STORY US....EMA enterprises is own and operated by Mike and Jane Leeuw

The name "EMA" represents the first initial of Mike's AND Jane's daughter's names - Elizabeth, Michelle, and Andrea.

About Mike.. Mike started his career in the hospitality industry with the Marriott Corporation and transferred to Kalamazoo, MI to become the food service director of Kalamazoo College in 1993.

Mike and his family enjoyed the Kalamazoo area, so he joined Damon's Restaurants and partnered with them for 10 years. He decided to venture out on his own in 2006 and opened The Village Inn South, his first restaurant. From there, Mike and his team have grown the restaurant group into seven restaurants.
