The Sugar Bowl Sweet Shop was open from 1921 - 1997, under Greek ownership. It served the Desplains community for decades before it was closed. The store made home-made candy, as well as operated soda fountain and restaurant. The store was closed/sold in 197 when the manager of the shop (the nephew of the owner) was arrested for attempting to hire an individual to murder his uncle (the shop's owner).
