Lee Famous Donuts in Libertyville, IL
Lee Famous Donuts in Libertyville, Illinois Mr. Lee opened up Lee donuts in 1989 and quickly the word of his . His secret weapon was a man I call Mr. Korn. Donut mess around with Mr. Korn's donuts. He started with Mr. Lee when the shop opened, and he still still works there today, 7 days a week. Mr. Korn very may well have made every single donut I ate until I entered high school and tried Dunkin for the first time. Gross. Mr. Korn bought the shop from Mr. Lee after about 4 years and proceeded to run the place for about 20 years. Calculating the amount of donuts he's made runs into the several million category. This man lives donuts. Unfortunately every man has his limits; Mr. Korn sold the store to another man, wrote out a list of directions for his donuts and said goodbye to Libertyville. Doubly unfortunate, directions aren't capable of printing out 20 years of experience, quality went down, the cult following of customers diminished, road construction made it difficult to access. The shop was about to close down until my boss bought the place in January of this year. He remodeled the place to a 50s retro feel, and convinced Mr. Korn to come back once again. People often mention to me how bad the interior was over the years before it was remodeled; dusty, cluttered, overall ugly, but they never ever forget to mention that the donuts never lost their quality (the period of time Mr. Korn retired was relatively short).
