History of Countryside

Established in 1990, Countryside has always thrived on its family recipes and home-style atmosphere. You may remember the Kreme House in "downtown" Ooltewah. This was owned by Marlene Geren's parents who taught her many valuable lessons about running a successful restaurant business. Marlene has maintained the same style foods on the Countryside menu that were offered at the Kreme House.
