With the opening of our new Restaurant at
514 South 16th Street, opposite the Rome Hotel, next Tuesday, Decem
ber 21st, we can conceive of no more fitting occasion upon which to extend grateful acknowledge
ments to the good people of Omaha for the unanimous approval of Welch Service than at the
outset of this holiday season. The public demanded it and we met the demand. We now have four
Restaurants and The City National Cafeteria, catering to thousands daily. ,
Only the purest and most delicious foods, whole
somely and appetizingly prepared by skillful chefs, are placed before Welch
patrons. Add to this attractive environment, courtesy, and a desire always to please and you have
the formula of Welch success.
Men and women in every walk of life, eat at Welch's
not because of the fact that Welch's prices are low, but because of the more im
portant fact that Welch gives them the cleanest and purest food in the world, and gives it to them
Instead of spending an hour or two stowing away
a heavy luncheon, that crowds their stomachs, dulls their wits and unfits them
for business or pleasure the rest of the day, they get a light, crisp lunch at Welch's that doesn't take
fifteen minutes at the most, and that puts their brains and bodies Doth in excellent condition to meet the
obstacles of the day.
You can save from thirty to sixty minutes golden,
money making minutes at any time of the day bv eating your meals at any of
the Welch places. This solves the problem of the busy Holiday Shoppers. j
A twenty cent lunch of clean, pure, wholesome food, is 400 times
better to work on than a $2.00 feed in a lobster palace.
