He was 93.After graduating from the School of Agriculture at the University of Connecticut, the website for Stew Leonard’s claims that Leonard got his start in the dairy business by working for the company that his family owned in Norwalk.
The name of the Norwalk native and dairy farmer Leonard served as the inspiration for the name of the restaurant, Stew Leonard’s.

Since it first opened its doors, it has expanded into a grocery store chain that at the present time has locations in Danbury, Newington, and Norwalk, all of which are located within the limits of the state of Connecticut. In addition, there is a selection of locations to pick from around the state of New York as well as the state of New Jersey.
