Rep. Fritts Honors Lincolnway Cafe for February Local Business Highlight

DIXON- For his February 2024 local business highlight, State Representative Bradley Fritts (R-Dixon) chose to highlight Lincolnway Cafe in Franklin Grove. Rep. Fritts spent time touring the business and presented the owners with a certificate of appreciation for their contributions to the community. 

“This month, I chose to honor Lincolnway Cafe because they are an excellent, family-owned restaurant that gives back to our community,” said Rep. Fritts. “Not only is the customer service and food top-notch, but they also support the local women’s club, Ashton and Franklin Grove sports, as well as many other area events.” 

Lincolnway Cafe was opened nearly 18 years ago by owners Muda and Joe. Muda was raised in the restaurant industry and followed in her father’s footsteps, who also owned a family restaurant. 

Rep. Fritts concluded, “It’s not an easy time to own a local family restaurant. I applaud Muda and Joe on their dedication to Lincolnway Cafe and the entire Franklin Grove community.” 

Lincolnway Cafe is located at 137 North Elm St in Franklin Grove.
