The Spotted Cow has been synonymous with excellent Peoria ice cream since the mid-80's. Owner Frank Abdnour was a fixture in Peoria Heights for 20 years before he pulled up and put down new roots on Glen Avenue. Frank built the Glen location from the ground up. One year after his move, it appears this cow has picked a greener, more prosperous pasture to push his goods. Those goods now include an expanded menu with hot meals, and all that great ice cream. He says he actually attended Penn State for a few weeks to learn how to make ice cream.
