The Granrud's Lefse Tradition

The Granrud's Lefse Tradition
If you happen to be driving in Scobey, Montana, you may find Granrud's Lefse. People come from all over to tour our unique operation and sample our lefse hot off the grill. Our season starts up in the fall and runs into April. Come by some time to watch and taste.

Company History
In 1977, Evan and Myrt Granrud had this BIG idea to make lefse. The wheels started turning, the pieces started to fall together and after many long hours spent designing the rolling machines, the tube stuffers, frying grills, cooling conveyer and perfecting the recipe, the perfect lefse was made. The unique rolling process (not pressed) Evan developed is what makes many say Granrud’s lefse is “just like Grandma used to make.” Evan and Myrt's efforts paid off, and since 1977, Granrud's Lefse is still being sold nationwide.

In 1995, the Granrud’s decided to sell their business, and it was purchased by Northern Electric Cooperative of Opheim.

In 1998 Granrud's Lefse was honored to be named the "Official Lefse of the Høstfest" held in Minot, North Dakota every October. It is North America's largest Scandinavian Festival.

In September 2005, former managers Alice Redfield and Twyla Anderson became the new owners of Granrud's Lefse.

Unfortunately, we lost Evan Granrud in 2014 and Myrt in January 2015. They are missed by this community and by all the past and present employees of Granrud’s Lefse.

 After the 2018 season, Granrud’s Lefse was purchased by Scott and Libi Susag of Scobey, Mt. The company made its move from Opheim to nearby Scobey , Mt 60 miles to the East in June of 2018. The Susag’s are proud to carry on the original Granrud’s Lefse recipe along with bringing another business to Daniels County. 
During the first season of operations in the new Scobey location, the Granrud’s workforce had a rotation of 22 employees for the season. Normally 10 employees are needed at one time to keep the production floor running smoothly. The Susag’s offer the community part time flexible jobs so many workers are able to join our team and keep the tradition of top quality Lefse alive for Granruds 42nd year and many more to come!
