SHIRLEY "MOM" KRIMMER
Proprietor and Business Manager
Born and raised in Wabasha, Minnesota, Shirley was one of five children. As a young adult, she moved to Alaska and lived with her brother and his wife. In 1963, she met a handsome young serviceman, Frank Krimmer who was stationed in Alaska. They married in 1964. Eventually, they settled in Silverton, Ohio and along came the kids. First, Frank ("Fritz"), Jeff, Kathy, Steve and finally Dan. The family was now complete!
Raising four boys and one daughter, simultaneously taking care of the marital home and finances, Shirley developed an intricate knowledge of the "inner workings of a small business". Therefore, it was a no brainer as to who would oversee the bookkeeping for the restaurant.
In the capacity of wife, mother, balancing the day-to-day operations of her household, she developed an impeccable eye for detail, organization, and keen business sense, which she has used time and time again for the business she co-owns with her son, Fritz.
Shirley's skills at budgeting and money management compliment Fritz's experience and phenomenal public relations persona.
As co-owner and business manager, she works in conjunction with Fritz. Together, they have combined their 51 years of experience and business skills to realize their vision... All the while keeping an eye on the bottom line!
