Majority Owner, Legacy Hotel & Owner, Executive Chair, Saranac Glove Company

Legacy Hotel

1004 Brett Favre Pass, Green Bay

A visionary. Founder. Principal. These are the words Legacy Hotel used to describe its majority owner, Vicki Fabry, when it recently opened its doors as Green Bay’s newest all-suites hotel. Fabry believes it’s important to build and reflect upon the legacy of our lives. “Let’s be intentional in making each moment count,” she says, and that is the spirit of her latest endeavor, Legacy Hotel. It features a restaurant, rooftop bar, spa, lounge and suites designed for travelers and locals to enjoy. The legacy of Fabry’s journey includes that of other family businesses. One of those is Saranac Glove Company, with generations of expertise in glove design, development and manufacturing. Attached to the Saranac building is Badger State Brewing, owned by Fabry’s son. To further round out the family’s vision for their Stadium District properties is a planned luxury condominium development on the former Jersey Store site, called Legacy Heights.

After the event, stay to enjoy Legacy's weekly Jazz Night in their beautiful atrium. The featured act is John Scofield Tribute Night with Phil Nelson.
