Margies Candies

Margie’s Candies ice cream parlor, 1960 N. Western Ave, was founded in the 1920s by Greek immigrant Peter George Poulos.

It later expanded to include chocolate and other sweets which it manufactures on behalf of other companies. From the beginning, Margie’s candy, ice cream, and fudge sauce have been homemade.

It was the homemade fudge sauce, poured over 18 percent butterfat ice cream, that attracted the Beatles after their concert in Comiskey Park.

The shop is today operated by Peter Poulos Jr.

Can anyone, particularly those from Chicago, USA, tell us more about Peter George Poulos or Peter Poulos Jnr, or Margies Candies?
