The new Owners of Chalet Suisse
We were surprised that late Heinz Bauert passed away suddenly and we were basically not prepared! A group of good Swiss Expatriate friends of Heinz playing every Sunday the Swiss card game JASS have realized that they could lose the Chalet Suisse. They have negotiated with the heirs of Heinz and the -5- have furthermore decided within a very short time to purchase all the shares of the GASTRONOMIE SUISSE SDN. BHD., owning the Chalet Suisse Restaurant. We have invested some funds into the soft renovation of the restaurant to upgrade the A/C’s, toilettes and to replace various equipments in the kitchen. We had to hire a new Chef while the longtime, loyal staff under the supervision of Ben Duran Gomez, Restaurant Manager, remained the same!
The new equal owners are: Manfred J. Faehndrich, Managing Director; Johann Bohi, Chairman; Bernhard Schobert, Director; Urs Allenspach, Director and Rudolf Messmer, Director.
Together those five Expatriates are proud to have over 100 years of Malaysian experience!
