PEORIA - A local catering company is celebrating 80 years of service.
Barrack's Hospitality Group in Peoria reached the special anniversary Thursday. The catering business celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony and hosted a special dinner with the local chamber of commerce.
The owner's grandparents started the business in 1933 and he says he can't imagine that his ancestors thought the business would last this long.
"No I can't imagine that they did, but it's a great foundation for a family business and I'm very grateful to continue on," said owner Jim Barrack.
