A tired group of representatives of Lums, Inc., went back to Miami this week after going through the opening of one of the chain's new sandwich houses here on William street. To quote manager Bob Dohogne, the company's boys ran into more work than they anticipated. "We've had hundreds every day," said a weary Bob.
Lums was a family restaurant chain founded in 1956 in Miami Beach, Fla. The restaurant's signature item was hot dogs steamed in beer.
In the 1970s, Milton Berle was the company's commercial spokesman.
The slogan: "You get a better choice when you choose Lums."
The 1968 and 1970 city directories list Lums at 2127 William St.
The 1971 directory lists the address as vacant.
The 1972 directory lists First Federal West at 2127 William St.
Credit Bureau Services is currently located at the site in the former First Federal West building.
