SkinnySweet opened it's doors last year and offers self-serve frozen yogurt.
Name: Marianne Cielak Company: SkinnySweet Frozen Yogurt Title: Owner Location: Glen Ellyn Founded: 2012 We were traveling on the west and came across a similar establishment. Always in search of healthy alternatives for ourselves and three children, we fell in love with frozen yogurt and the self-serve concept. We knew we wanted to develop our own concept and brand and that was how we came up with SkinnySweet, a family-owned, small business. This is our only store, we are not a chain. Glen Ellyn is great community that has tons of families and kids. We felt this type of community would love to have a healthy alternative to treat themselves too and have a lot of fun while doing it.

In July, the downtown dining spot will officially change its name to fire + wine to avoid going to court with a California restaurant.
Seeking to avoid a court battle and keep its focus on the food, Glen Ellyn’s well-known dining establishment flour + wine will soon have a new name. The restaurant, known for its pizza, pasta and, according to diners, consistently good food, will soon change its name to fire + wine. A California restaurant filed a complaint recently claiming ownership of a name similar to flour + wine, according to the owners. To avoid litigation and what might be a long, drawn out court battle the owners will change the name, effective July 1, shortly after its first anniversary. “Since we started this fire on the West coast, we think it’s appropriate to rename ourselves fire + wine,” said flour + wine co-owner Michael Vai. “We can spend the next 18 …
