@ Loves Local: Michael’s

We hope you’ll join us for an especially meaningful event as @ Loves Local comes to Highland Park to support the community and local business. On July 20th between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., stop by Michael’s and enjoy a free hot dog along with the community spirit Highland Park is known for.

@properties Christie’s International Real Estate and Proper Rate are proud to be a part of such a strong and welcoming community, and we will continue to share our love and support with those that call Highland Park home.

Keep reading for @ Loves Local event details and to see what Michael’s general manager Adam Porte had to say about the restaurant’s backstory:

@properties Christie’s International Real Estate: When was Michael’s established?

Michael’s: 1977.

 @properties Christie’s International Real Estate: What is the backstory to opening Michael’s?

Michael’s: Michael’s started as a small hot dog stand and has expanded to become a staple of the Highland Park community over time. Michael’s is a place of family gathering, celebration, and that last stop after practice for your table at home.

@properties Christie’s International Real Estate: What is your favorite treat?

Michael’s:  We serve desserts from Highwood’s Bent Fork Bakery, and the brownie and homemade hoho are out of this world. But recently I can’t stop sneaking a Root Beer Float up to my desk when I am doing work in the office.

@properties Christie’s International Real Estate: What was the inspiration for Michael’s?

Michael’s: Michael’s has always strived to serve good food fast, not just fast food. We are inspired by the people around us and are honored to serve such a loyal and gracious community, especially in these difficult times.

@properties Christie’s International Real Estate: What is your favorite part of working at Michael’s?

Michael’s: I love creating a positive work environment for my employees, and I love sharing a smile and conversation with our customers. Although, as someone who grew up loving Chicago-Style Hot Dogs and Merkt’s Cheddar Cheese, unlimited char dogs and cheddar fries is a close second…
