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.
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.
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.
