Back in 1986, the family I worked for was considering buying Maurice Lenell, but there was a lot of family fighting (on the Lenell side) about the terms of the sale, and whether there actually would BE a sale. After a lot of back and forth, the deal died. I was sorry that happened, because my boss kept coming in the office with tubs of cookies for us.
I'm a big fan of the pinwheel and the almond cookies. I hope the owner is able to find another location in Chicago.
