On Tuesday, June 1st, 2010 we interviewed Linda Anderson, new owner of Julie Ann’s of Crystal Lake about what is like being the owner of such a fabulous Crystal Lake Restaurant Staple:
What made you want to open the store?
To bring back something dear to Crystal Lake. I like local independent businesses and working with teens! I also like living in the same area that my business is located.
Can you give us a glimpse of your menu, what really jumps out as interesting menu items?
The classic fresh frozen custard, a premium ice-cream. We also have brought into the menu City Dogs. City Dogs are the most popular dogs from around the country, for instance we have the Cincinnati Dog with Skyline Chili , loads of Cheddar Cheese, Diced Onions, & Mustard. We also have the Manhattan and Carolina Slaw Dog. We also offer a number of dairy free smoothies and gluten free cones.
What else is on your menu that people may not be aware of?
We sell Frozen Custard pies and cake, such as our Snicker pie and Oreo fudge supreme. Julie Ann’s can also cater parties and corporate events.
What is your favorite menu item?
The Vanilla Julie Bar, it is a scoop of Vanilla Frozen Custard hand-dipped in semi-dark chocolate.
What is your back-ground?
I was a manager, part-owner of the original Crystal Lake Julie Ann’s location when I decided to start a family. Now after a brief hiatus (for me), we decided to give the community what they want and bring back the store with updated menu items and a great look to match.
