We have come a long way since this photo was taken over 30 years ago! Again, I am very proud to say that we are celebrating our 65th Year of business in the Valley… We just had a family of 3 generations in our establishment, and it is just such a touching moment for me to see other families carrying on the Miracle Mile tradition with their own.
We have been fortunate enough to be serving the Valley families for six decades, and with that has come a lot of tradition for families to bring their children and their children's children to our establishment to satisfy their craving for a great family meal. We are so fortunate to be a part of so many families lives, and it is always so great to hear about the fond memories that people have about our various locations that we have occupied.
Chris-Town is the location that I personally hear the most about. I remember being a kid myself, doing my homework on a pickle bucket behind the dessert case after school while my parents finished up their work for the day. When I got a little bit older, I came to work on Saturday mornings with my Mom and Dad at 7am, and worked with my Aunt Maria serving coffee to our breakfast diners! I felt really cool being at work because none of my other friends were able to do that on a weekly basis with their parents. In time, I got to help out on the Hot Dog grill serving hot dogs, making fresh hamburger patties and smashing in between two pieces of wax paper with massive china plates… THOSE WERE THE TIMES! I have very fond memories of Chris-Town and it was like a second home to me for several years of my childhood.
Now as a father myself, I get to share more memories with my children. I love it when they come to visit me at work because I remember going to visit my parents at work and how much I loved interacting with the other employees. My kids do the same thing and I love to see that. It's pretty fun to see how they interact at such a young age in an environment that they feel comfortable in… much like I did as a kid at Chris-Town.
I would love to hear about some of your memories about Miracle Mile over the last 65 Years! Please feel free to comment on this blog or on Facebook & Twitter about your Miracle Mile memories and let us know what you love most about our business!
Thank you so much for reading and I hope to hear about some of your fondest Miracle Mile memories soon!
