Fired Up has been in operation on Prospect Road for 14 years, they were in business on this strip in Peoria Heights before it was cool to be in business on this strip in Peoria Heights! I’ve been meaning to do a blog post on this place for a while, so today I thought I’d stop in and meet one of the people that has helped keep Fired Up lit and you can meet this person right below this paragraph because she’s this week’s People of Peoria Person!
People of Peoria: Person Number 26 - Heather
Heather is the manager of Fired Up and has been here since the beginning. She said that business has been very good this year and they’re gearing up for the busy holiday season that’s just ahead! Yes, it’s officially less than 100 days until Christmas, yikes, how did that happen? Well, let’s not think about that just yet, let’s see how Heather answers this week’s favorite five questions!

Halloween is our next holiday, what’s your favorite bar to go to on Halloween here in Peoria? I would say Martini’s. That’s where I met my husband! I went there to see Joe and Jerry play and Jerry introduced us!
The latest MBIP food tour is a 13 month chicken eating tour, where’s your favorite place in Peoria for chicken? The Spotted Cow, I love the chicken strip sandwich they have!
