Big honors for Glenn Yanow
No one serves up a better scoop of ice cream than Springfield's own GLENN YANOW, long time proprietor and all time good guy owner of the BASKIN ROBBINS franchise on MacArthur Boulevard, Springfield.
Last week Glenn and thousands of his fellow BR franchisees met up in New Orleans for their annual convention. And Glenn was voted "Franchisee of the Year" for the entire country.
While I'm sure that honor has a lot to do with operating a growing and profitable business, anyone who knows Glenn and his commitment to his customers knows why he's deserving of this high honor. Years ago when I lived on Dial Court my young daughter and I would make the trip to visit Glenn and his always cheery clan of high school students to load up on Gold Medal Ribbon (her favorite) and Mint Chocolate Chip (mine.) I'm sure that story has been repeated with thousands of local families who've found their favorite flavor in Glenn's store. His store will factor into our family memories for years to come, a legacy he can surely be proud of.
Congrats Glenn, from your friends at Illinois Times and everyone around town!
