A Marios meat grill was a big seller during the early days of the restaurant industry.
But now, after more than 50 years of service, the marios Meat Grill has gone out of business.
Owner Mike “Boomer” Cramer said in a phone interview from his home in Colorado Springs that he was surprised by the restaurant’s closure.
The restaurant opened in the mid-1970s, but had gone out with a bang.
“We started with just one butcher, and now we have a whole butcher and a whole lot of other people working for us,” Cramer told Breitbart News.
“We’re going to have to look for new jobs, but I’m glad to be gone.”
Boomers first wife, Diane, died in 2012 and his oldest son, Paul, is now the CEO of the business.
Paul Cramer, the former president of the Colorado Springs Marios, said he had planned to open a new marios restaurant in Colorado.
He said the restaurant was a hit.
“I didn’t know what to expect when we opened,” Paul Cramers said.
“But the people we worked with, the staff, the employees, they were all very nice and kind.
They always wanted to help and wanted to serve us.”
While the restaurant served a small amount of meat to the community, Cramer’s family said it was a family business.
“It’s like a family, you know,” Paul told Breitbart.
“It’s a family and it’s a community.
And I love it.
It’s a part of me.”
Cramer said the Marios had about 10 employees, including his sons and daughters.
He also said that the restaurant would continue to sell marios in other states, but he was not sure where to locate it.
“They’re going on hiatus until I figure out where to go, and we’ll see,” he said.
The restaurant has been closed since its closing, but Cramer plans to keep the marias meat grinders and electric meat graters in operation as long as possible.
He expects to open another marios soon, but has no specific plans to retire the marius meat griller.
“My kids and I have a great business, we’ve had a great life and we want to make it go on and keep it going and keep doing it,” Cramer said.
“Our family is here, but it’s going to take time, and I know we’ll get through this.
I’m very thankful for everything that we’ve done and will do again.”
Buster Cramer served as president of Marios in Colorado for 30 years.
He was fired by the owners in the late 1970s, when they decided to take the Marias meat market public.
Cramer later joined the local Chamber of Commerce, where he was vice president of business development and then became president.
He said that as he retired from the Marius, he did not feel a sense of relief, and that he never felt as though he had to leave the Marises family behind.
“A lot of people are going to miss that, but we’ll be doing it anyway,” he told Breitbart in a Facebook message.
“And it will be a family thing.
We’ll continue to do marios.
That’s what I love to do.”
