California transplant and Wheaton native Pam Duffy, and her photographer husband Ken Little, decided to venture into the restaurant business. They began searching for a business location and theme that seemed right to them.

What they found brought them back to Pam's roots and her early childhood memories of sitting in the brightly lit windows of Glen Ellyn's Glen Oak Restaurant with her grandma, waiting for her uncle to walk by on his daily commute to the city.

Those early memories spawned an interest to buy the Glen Oak restaurant.
