The Lees won’t completely leave the restaurant, Kan Lee said. Boon Lee wants to check up on the restaurant as often as possible and Kan Lee will help out on a part-time basis.
But they do intend to take it easy and enjoy two grandchildren they await adding to the family.
The Lee family have become close friends with many in the community, including Ralph Clark.
Clark, Logansport, said he has known Kan and Joe Lee for 27 years and has helped them in the restaurant since it opened. Over the years, they have become excellent friends, he said.
“They’ve done a really good job,” Clark said. “I hate to see them go [from the restaurant], but I’ll be seeing them. I know the new owner will do a good job.”
This won’t be Mellany He’s first experience owning a restaurant. She owned a Chinese restaurant in Chicago for nine years, she said.
She will travel to Chicago once a week to visit family, including her four daughters, because they won’t move to Logansport until the following school year. She is excited for the challenge.
“I would love to have feedback from customers about what they like and don’t like so I have an idea of what I can improve,” Mellany He said. “I hope to have a good relationship with the community.”
