MEET OUR OWNER, Jerry Ming

Jerry

 "I was raised in a small town in Wisconsin. I learned it's super important to treat others the way you want to be treated at a very young age. If you do your very best to be honest, treat guests with courtesy & respect, and LISTEN to what they want, you will be successful. I’ve owned Parkway for 30+ years. I consider it an honor to host each and every event we have.

More about me? I'm a high school & college level basketball & volleyball referee, and I raise dogs that are gifted to individuals losing their eyesight through a wonderful, charitable program called Leader Dogs for the Blind. Call or text me directly at (847) 373-1237."
