Hi, I’m Miss McGee, more formally known as Robynn Salter. I am the owner/operator of McGee’s Family Restaurant. I grew up in the Morden & Winkler area, but now reside in Carman with my two sons, Everett (4) and Logan (2).
Before purchasing McGee’s, I had always worked in the food service and hospitality industries. My very first job was working banquets with my mom at the young age of 13. My mom was my idol, my mentor and who I learned my work ethic from. After moving to Carman, I started working at Bubba’s Cafe. It was there that I was presented with the opportunity to purchase the business in 2010, and I did, renaming it McGee’s Family Restaurant.
In the spring of 2016, I relocated the business to the Carman Golf and Curling Club, and just one year later, expanded to include a second McGee’s location, at the Minnewasta Golf and Country Club. I had always said I would open a second location, just had no idea it would be at golf courses when I don’t even golf! I’m still waiting on Dean and Geoff to teach me…
If you’re wondering how the name ‘McGee’s’ came about – no, it’s not my last name. As a child, Robynn was often shortened to ‘Bobby’ by my parents. It was my dad that tacked on McGee, like the Kris Kristofferson song ‘Me and Bobby McGee’. Often customers would ask me if I was “Miss McGee”, so after a while I just stopped correcting them and just went with it. Call me Miss McGee, Bobby, or Robynn, just don’t forget to call McGee’s for dinner!
