Goodbye Big B’s

For 26 1/2 years, Dusty and Bill Phillips, my older sister and her husband, have owned and operated Big B’s, home of great hamburgers, homemade fries and the best thick milkshakes the world has to offer. Today, that era came to an end, when they sold the business to a small fast food chain. Already, the Big B’s sign is down and the menu has been changed.

The little hamburger joint was a favorite of the locals in Sandy, Utah. Dusty and Bill’s four kids had their first real work experiences behind the counter of Big B’s. My kids loved to stop there when ever we visited Utah. Last August, when my wife, Claudia, and I celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary in Utah, we stopped by for a photo and some food. I’ve got to admit a little lump arose in my throat tonight when Dusty told me the news.

    I cant’ believe Big B’s is closing!!! As a real estate agent, I can officially say, “well, there goes the neighborhood.” Just kidding, I can’t say that as an agent… but I can say that as a person. (They are not the same and if you have met some real estate agents, you might agree.)

    That is really sad.
