The Finish Line Family Restaurant has been in business since 1976. When we first opened, our name was House of Flavors. We started out as an ice cream parlor that also served soup and sandwiches, but over the years we have added more and more items to the menu and become a family restaurant that also serves ice cream.
House of Flavors was started by a local Hillsdale man. He sold the business not long after, to the Neal family, from northern Michigan, and they added it to their chain of House of Flavors Restaurants.
In the mid- 80's, the Neal family sold the restaurant to a retired school teacher from Adrian. In 1995, the restaurant changed hands for the last time. It was purchased by a local woman, Lisa Slade, who had worked at the restaurant since 1977.
Over the years, we realized that new customers thought we were just an ice cream parlor because of our name- House of Flavors, and due to that they were actually passing us by. We needed a name that would not give people that impression, so in 2000, the name and decor was changed and we became The Finish Line Family Restaurant, incorporating a racing theme. These changes facilitated our transition to full-fledged restaurant.
Now, we have customers that come in daily, and we are adding new faces all the time. We have enjoyed serving Hillsdale County for the past 40 years.
