Shady Glen cover
Описание Shady Glen, officially Shady Glen Dairy Stores, is a restaurant with two locations in Manchester, Connecticut. John and Bernice Rieg opened the first Shady Glen store near the Manchester/Bolton town line in 1948 and a second store in the Manchester Parkade shopping center in 1965. It is now owned by William and Annette Hoch.Shady Glen is a Manchester institution, locally famous for its homemade ice cream, signature "Bernice Original" cheeseburger, vintage 1950s style diner and service. In 2012, it was recognized by the James Beard Foundation as an American Classic.History of Shady Glen Dairy Farm and StoreIn 1946 John and Bernice Rieg decided to expand their farm into making and selling ice cream. The University of Connecticut at the time had a strong program for helping farmers to diversify, and the Riegs worked with Leonard R. Dowd, Professor of Dairy Manufacturing in UConn’s Department of Animal Industries, on their first formulas for ice cream.The First Shady Glen Dairy StoreOn a hill, 1/4 mile from the Rieg farm, a two-and-a-half room summer cottage lay on ten acres of land. It was, at the time, located in an isolated area. Although the cottage had an electric light pole in front of it, there was no electricity or inside plumbing. Nevertheless, John and Bernice worked out an arrangement with the owners, whereby, with very little money down and small monthly payments, they were able to buy the cottage and land in 1938.Shady Glen Dairy Farm opened on June 12, 1948. Almost immediately, its 47 stools filled. Bernice ran the store and John managed the manufacturing. They brought the same concern for quality from their milk business to the new dairy store. Asked how long it took to convince him that the enterprise would succeed, John said “It was immediate. I couldn’t believe it.”
