THE MAGLEBY’S STORYA Utah valley family that’s been serving the community with the best food for over 40 years.
Forty years ago, retired dentist David “Doc” Parkinson (1930–2014) had a dream to share truly great food with the world. That dream led to the original Magleby’s restaurant, and for over 20 years Doc greeted Magleby’s customers at the door with world-famous breadsticks and a warm welcome.
Our Utah Valley family has been serving the community the best food for decades, and thanks to Lenora Parkinson, Doc’s wonderful wife of 50 years, Magleby’s dessert recipes have become legendary.
Loving Life – And Food Too
When it comes to life, Doc never did anything halfway. Whether it was riding 400,000 miles on his three motorcycles, playing 127 holes of golf in one day, or always asking himself “What Would Christ Do?” Doc was an avid life-lover. And that same passion is found in Magleby’s food.
By pushing his limits to always achieve excellence, Doc created a culinary brand where presentation, taste, and service are all equally important. And once culinary excellence is achieved, that excellence should be shared with everyone—including all the people of Utah Valley.
