Over the years, Oramís grew to be famous for its old-fashioned donuts and in 1960, the familyís foster son, Tom Bradshaw, was now ready to take over the operation (thatís him in the photo). Tom was  committed to carrying on the familyís business as he worked at the donut shop daily, producing  the quality products that created Oramís ďcult-likeĒ following.

 The shop remained successful and popular until May, 1995, when Tom was forced to close Oramís doors due to illness. Loyal customers were left wondering if they would ever enjoy the unique taste of Oramís old fashioned donuts again.  




With the shop closed for several months, local business people (and huge fans of Oramís) Jon and Vickie George contacted Tom Bradshaw, expressing their interest in seeing the famous donut shop re-open.

Committed to keeping the old-fashioned recipe intact, the Georges reopened OramĎs on August 28, 1995 to an eager public relieved to know that the donuts that they loved would still be available to them.
