NILES, Ohio (WKBN) – After nearly 60 years, it’s the end of an era for the owners of the Niles Dairy Queen Brazier on State Street.
The business has been owned by the Cope family — Bob and Marge and later their daughter, Sandy — since 1962.
Though the family is devastated to let it go, they say it’s time to move on. It has been sold to a private owner.
Longtime employee Rose-Marie Clover said the legacy that the Cope family made in the Niles community will last a lifetime and reaches far beyond what they did inside the business.
