"Ted Drewes has been selling frozen custard and Christmas trees for decades, with an attention to quality that has made his trees and custard the finest in St. Louis.
It all started when Ted Sr. opened his first ice cream store in Florida in 1929, followed the next year by an other store on Natural Bridge in St. Louis and the South Grand store in 1931. In 1941 the family opened a second south side stand which is the current Chippewa location, old route 66. By 1958, the south side stands were all that remained.
According to Ted Jr., the success of the operation has brought it nationwide attention in the form of offers to franchise the stands. He said such offers pour in quite frequently. However he has never agreed to franchise and he says that he never will."

(1) NESTLE INSTANT COFFEE COULD CONTAIN GLASS FRAGMENTS
"Nestle Canada is voluntarily recalling its Nescafe brand Espresso instant coffee because it may contain small fragments of glass and should not be consumed, the company said Thursday. The product, imported from France and distributed across Canada, is sold in 100-gram glass jars with a black sleeve and has a UPC code of 5500065052. No injuries have been reported and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency is monitoring the recall, according to a news release from Nestle."
(2) MCDONALD’S SAYS NO WAY RONALD WILL RETIRE
"That's the message McDonald's Corp.'s CEO Jim Skinner gave Thursday to the red-haired clown's critics who say the cartoon promotes unhealthy eating and should go the way of the Marlboro Man and Joe Camel.
"The answer is no," Skinner told a room full of shareholders who gathered for a meeting at the company's headquarters in the Chicago suburb of Oak Brook, Ill.
"He is a force for good," Skinner said, adding that the nearly 50-year-old clown is an ambassador for the McDonald's brand and its Ronald McDonald House Charities. "He communicates effectively with children and families around balanced, active lifestyles. He does not hawk food."
Shareholders applauded Skinner. And they unleashed a chorus of boos when representatives from the advocacy group Corporate Accountability International requested the famous icon be shelved — for good."
