* Ownership: After the death of Frank Webster in 1980, his son Jim and his wife Cindy took over the business and have operated it since. Cole Webster, the third generation leader, now heads the daily operations.

* Location: Since 1989, the business has been located on a 7.5-acre site along Interstate 24 at the 4th avenue exit at 1801 E.
