Braums bully
(Mike Allen)

When did Braum’s become such a bully? I feel like things were going so well between the company and the communities it serves. For the most part, anyway.

Suddenly, it’s like, “Hey, you guys like our one-third-pound burgers? Well we’re taking those away then.” And more recently, “Hey, you guys like mid-century architecture in a city that has very few examples left? Well, we’re gonna knock that down and turn it into a parking lot.”

Much like Luke Skywalker with Darth Vader, I believe there is still good in Braum’s. Hopefully they can be made to see how much northwest OKC values the Classen Circle’s Donnay Building and the businesses that occupy it.
