A Swirling Great Five Years!

Suzy’s Swirl Gurnee – Closed August 20th

Suzy’s Swirl Lake Bluff – Open and Swirling!

Wow! What an amazing five years it’s been. For starters, thank you to the Village of Gurnee and ALL of our amazing customers for your unwavering support during this fantastic journey. We have enjoyed every moment and our partnerships with schools like Warren, Woodland and Viking. Additionally, our partnerships with Gurnee Park District, Warren-Newport Library and so many clubs, associations and sports teams, have invaluable to us.

Five years ago we had a dream and it became a reality in Gurnee. Today, we have so many adventures still to come. As our time in Gurnee comes to a close please visit our Lake Bluff location. We have exciting promotional events planned throughout the Fall. Beginning in September, we will be offering double loyalty points for every visit.

We are also excited to announce the beginning of SAFE (Suzy’s Angel Foundation for everyone), dedicated to providing grief support and resources for children and families who have lost a parent. This issue is near and dear to our hearts. Five years ago, our co-founder Sue Tierno lost her spouse and life partner, Joe, to heart disease. His unexpected death had a great impact on Sue, their four children and the future of Suzy’s Swirl. Joe played an integral role in the creation of Suzy’s Swirl and his memory lives on with our Big Joe Challenge. Every day we honor him and are grateful to him for the immense contribution he made in all of our lives.

While it was with great sadness we made the decision to close our Gurnee location, we did so with a renewed focus on the brand and on our commitment to the communities and family traditions that we have become a daily part of. Through our efforts to expand our catering line, launch new product rolls and internationally licensing our brand, our dedication to swirl goodness, greatness and gratitude remains true. Thank you and we will see you at our Lake Bluff location!

With Swirling Gratitude

Sue, Jen and Kathy

703 Rockland Rd, Lake Bluff
