Absolutely Fresh Fish
In 1979, Greg Lindberg, hailing from West Point, NE, started driving fresh shrimp and oysters from New Orleans to Omaha in a refrigerated truck, and selling it directly from the truck on the corner of 70th & Dodge. Understandably, people were a little nervous at the thought of buying seafood from the back of a truck, but the word got around due to a quality product at a reasonable price.
THE NAME “ABSOLUTELY FRESH”
Customers were the true inspiration behind our name. When asked if the shrimp was fresh, Greg started answering, “It’s ABSOLUTELY FRESH”! After a couple months of this, he painted it on some signs, then on the truck itself, and it stuck. Our loyal and knowledgeable customers asked for more and we expanded our line to include Mahi-Mahi, Salmon, Snapper along with so many more kinds of seafood from all over the world that we took over an old mechanic’s garage at 18th & Leavenworth as a warehouse. Eventually, Greg opened a Fish Market in the front of that building, where our famous Cocktail Shrimp & Sauce and Smoked Salmon were born!
MOVING WEST & THE BIRTH OF SHUCKS
In 2002, Greg purchased Sherm’s Seafood Market at 119th & Pacific, where Absolutely Fresh was able to greatly expand its offerings and client base. What began with 2 tables and a limited menu of café style offerings within the market laid the groundwork for the first Shucks Fish House & Oyster Bar when the adjoining space next to the market became available in 2006. It was a bit of trial and error, but eventually our concept caught on which led to the opening of Shucks Legacy in 2008 and Shucks Downtown in 2012.
ADDING TO “THE FAMILY”
Upon seeing a “Space for Lease” sign at the former Café Café at 120th & Pacific, Greg took over the space and created Bailey’s Breakfast & Lunch in 2007. He created a menu and atmosphere reflecting home-style cooking with a touch of modern flair and just enough seafood. More recently in 2016, Greg acquired The Dundee Dell from its longtime owner in the hopes of preserving an Omaha tradition at a time when many other storied Omaha restaurants had ceased to exist. The Dell has been a staple of the Dundee neighborhood since 1934, and is home to the Wall of Scotch and famous Fish & Chips.
THE ABSOLUTELY FRESH SEAFOOD COMPANY OF TODAY
With 5 restaurants, 1 Full Service Seafood Market, Catering & Event Services, and a thriving Wholesale Division that provides quality fish &seafood to over 200 different restaurants in the metro area, Greg’s vision has grown into “the real job” that everyone hoped he would find all those years ago. We are proud to be locally owned and operated with over 150 employees – a majority of which have been with us for over 5 years, and some over 20! Our extended family of staff includes siblings, couples, nieces, nephews – even children of our employees. We believe in giving back to the Omaha community that has supported us for all these years (please support our First Tuesday Fundraisers), and look forward to serving you for many years to come.

Douglas County Health Dept.
Imagine a place where people from across the community have an opportunity to grow healthy and succeed. A place where place doesn’t matter and everyone’s human potential is realized.
That is the goal of the Douglas County Health Department – the public health agency overseeing the well-being of more than a half million people in Eastern Nebraska. This responsibility is one we take with great seriousness.
It starts by connecting everyone to a field of opportunity, a health-based grid of care and nourishment that opens the door to great things.
Disease control is a primary focus as the Douglas County Health Department investigates all communicable disease reports, then takes action to prevent their spread. It starts before that by promoting disease prevention through education and vaccination.
The passionate pursuit of health equity is done with the realization that human potential unfilled is everyone’s human potential lost. No one’s health is safe until everyone’s health is safe. In that quest, the Douglas County Health Department also promotes environmental safety.
The Douglas County Health Department is prepared to address the reality of social determinants of health, knowing a person’s zip code is as important to their well-being as their genetic code. Access to good food, safe-affordable housing, exercise, and health care are fundamental.
We inspect pools to set a level of safety and we promote healthy life choices. DCHD works with food retailers to build their businesses around good nutrition. Through this we strive to reduce chronic illness and build the local economy.
Children’s wellness, before and after birth, is part of the foundation we are building. Once it’s built, we need to make sure it grows into a bright future for everyone.
Promoting and protecting public health – that’s what we do.

With decades in the spice, cooking, and sausage making business, Frisco Spices are the spice specialists.
In 1928 E.G. Fransiscus started the company in his father’s garage. After three years of providing high quality seasonings and food processing equipment in the Omaha area, he realized he needed more space. In 1931 the company was moved to a building near downtown Omaha at 421 South 12th Street. Business was brisk and in 1945 E.G. still needed more space so he moved the company to 517 South 13th Street. In 1958 E.G.’s son Nick came home from the service and started work with his Father. In 1971 Nick took the reigns and continued the tradition set by his Father. In 1993 Nick Fransiscus and Mike Pullen merged to carry on the business in a much larger scale which allowed us to carry more items while keeping the freshest quality available. In 2000 we realized to better serve our valued customers, we needed to expand to the world of the Internet.

Glenn Valley Foods
When restaurant industry pioneer Gary Rohwer founded Glenn Valley Foods in 2009, he set in motion a tradition of innovation and uncompromised quality that started in 1981 when Gary opened his first Philly Cheese Steak restaurant. Most notably, Gary channeled his expertise, industry experience and instinct for understanding the needs of restaurant owners and chefs into creating his now-famous Quick Release Puck Philly Steak.
Prior to Gary’s breakthrough food service invention, there was no vertically pre-sliced and pre-portioned quick release Philly meat category at the distribution level. Instead, traditional flat steak was the industry standard – a cut of meat that required labor-intensive chopping, shredding, hacking and tearing during the cooking process.
Determined to find a more efficient way to deliver sliced Philly meat that offers flavor, convenience and consistent quality, Rohwer dedicated himself to inventing a process in which a delicious, premium steak product could be pre-sliced and pre-portioned before it reached restaurant kitchens and store shelves. Thanks to years of careful research and development, his vertically sliced Philly Steak remains one of the most widely used products among restaurant operators and food service distributors across the country.
Today, Glenn Valley Foods offers a variety of beef, chicken and pork products to a wide range of customers – from top restaurant chains to grocery stores, and even directly to the consumer. Whether our products are utilized as the key ingredient for a new menu offering or a quick, delicious weeknight dinner, our customers choose Glenn Valley Foods because they can count on the convenience and versatility, without sacrificing flavor.
Take this opportunity to experience the quality, value and convenience of our Quick Release Philly Steaks and other premium products.

Hospitality Management Systems was founded in 1995 by Mark Carroll, owner of Carroll Business Systems. CBS was already an established MICROS dealer with experience in the Cash Register business since the 1960’s and typewriter sales and service since 1919. Carroll Business Systems, Inc. was started by Leo W. Carroll, Sr. and was known as Carroll Typewriter Co. at that time. The company has been a family business since Leo Jr. joined the company after WWII. Leo Jr.’s son, Joe, joined in 1955 with the addition of his son Mark in the early 1980’s.
The years since 1984 have been the most dynamic, and represent the largest period of growth in the company’s long history. Today our average transaction size is larger than the revenue earned in an entire year in the 30’s and 40’s. CBS has grown both in terms of revenue and geographic presence. In 1995, CBS purchased the MICROS distribution for the Kansas City market and in 1997 acquired the dealership in Omaha, Nebraska. The Kansas and Nebraska markets are handled by a wholly owned subsidiary called Hospitality Management Systems, based in Lenexa, KS.

Nebraska Restaurant Association
Since the enactment of the Nebraska Kansas Act of 1854, the establishment of Brownville on the Missouri River in that same year, the filing of the first Homestead Act land claim in Gage County by Daniel Freeman in 1863 and the statehood of Nebraska in 1867, Nebraska has been mostly about food. The blizzard of January, 1888, was no exception. As this document is being initiated in 2014, Agriculture is Nebraska’s largest industry and Hospitality is Nebraska’s second largest. Food, therefore, is still Nebraska’s top priority. And that food is shipped all over the world!
During Nebraska’s Territorial history, it had 11 Governors, although one of them was not recognized by the Federal Government and 5 of them were “acting.” Since Statehood, Nebraska has had 39 Governors and one Acting Governor. They’ve all been appreciative of Nebraska food.
During the First and Second World Wars, a lot of Nebraska food was used to feed our nation’s soldiers, as it also was in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. Two years after the end of World War II, Ray Matson, Hilltop House restaurant, Omaha, began serving his two terms as President of the Nebraska Restaurant Association in 1947 and 1948, followed by Horay Anderson of Grand Island in 1949. Ray Matson was the first Nebraskan to serve as the president of the National Restaurant Association. Val Peterson was Governor during their terms and Harry Truman was President of the U.S. In 1949 Harry Truman ordered an airlift of hay to cattle in western Nebraska during a blizzard. In 1950, grateful citizens in Lincoln greeted President Truman during his stop there. By that time Bennie Davis of Bennie’s in Omaha was beginning the first of his two terms as President of the Nebraska Restaurant Association.
In 1957, Ruth Brink, of Kilpatrick’s, Omaha, may have been the first female president of Nebraska Restaurant Association, paving the way for Cynthia Barnes, Clarkson Hospital, Omaha, in 1984, Jan Moore, Amigo’s, Lincoln, in 2005, Dawn (Everett) Amend, Runza International, Lincoln, in 2006, and Judy Daniell, Ricardo’s Mexican Restaurant, Norfolk, 2010.
Being a member of the Advisory Board of the Association is like having a second job. Being a member of the voting Board of Directors and its committees is like have two extra jobs. Being on the Executive Committee, as an officer, is like having three extra jobs. In 1961, the Association began awarding a traveling trophy, for displaying one year, to recognize the Restaurateur of the Year. In 1974, the Association began recognizing the Associate of the Year. So many have contributed to the Association’s success that awards are now being given to Allied Members, Employees and Restaurants of the Year by Region.
During the 1983 presidential tenure of Raymond L. Tonkinson, Dalton Service & Café, Hastings, before the digital age, the Association began offering a free library and video service.
During the three 1986-1988 terms of presidency by John Peterson, Richfield Café, Richfield, the Association began publishing a newsletter and a Nebraska Guide to Good Eating.
In 1989, during the first presidency of Dean Rasmussen, Grandmother’s, Omaha & Lincoln, the Association began offering dual memberships in Nebraska Restaurant Association and National Restaurant Association.
During the 1990 presidency of Jim Bryant, Sax’s Pizza, Grand Island, the Association began hosting its annual awards banquet, “Taste of Nebraska,” which is still going strong.
During the 1991 & 1992 presidencies of Tony Messineo, Valentino’s, Lincoln & Omaha, the Association opened an office, issued jackets to the Board, improved membership records, began offering Food Manager Permit testing, brought in national speakers for the “Taste of Nebraska” banquet, developed a strategic plan and changed the Newsletter to MainCourse Magazine. ‘Twas a busy two years!
During the 1993-1994 terms of President Charles Huff, Village Motor Inn, Lincoln, a trade exposition was resumed, a record number of memberships were signed up and Servsafe classes were begun. Speaking of new memberships, William F. Koehne, Arrow Inn Supper Club, Lincoln, sold 100 new memberships when he was president (year unknown).
During Dean Rasmussen’s 2003 term, the Association changed from a management company to a Board-operated association. Admiral James Partington, USN (Ret.), was hired as Executive Director. Partington soon also began serving as lobbyist for local, state and national issues. James Otto also began serving as lobbyist for the Association.
During Judy Daniell’s presidency, the Association redesigned its website and began selling on-line advertising.
During the 2012 presidency of Denis Hall, Fernando’s Café & Cantina, Omaha, the refinement of appropriate awards to be given out at “Taste of Nebraska” was achieved.
During the 2013 presidency of Wayne Boles, Lazlo’s Brewery & Grill restaurants and FireWorks Restaurant, Lincoln & Omaha, the Association staff, through the work of Brandy Nielson, changed the name of MainCourse magazine to Nebraska Hospitality News. The Buyer’s Guide became an on-line publication. Boles began inquiries into the names of past presidents and the history of the Association, some of which is missing from the archives.
A partial list of past presidents, some with photos and resumes’, is in the archives of the Association.
Membership in the Association over the past decades has included leaders who hailed from Grand Island, where the State Fair now is, Omaha, the home of the largest railroad in the world, Union Pacific, Scottsbluff, named after Hiram Scott in 1843, Columbus, of Behlen fame, Schuyler, Shelby, Norfolk, home of Johnny Carlson, Hastings, home of Tom Osborne, Richfield, Lincoln, largest city in the world named after Abraham Lincoln, Kearney, new home of Nebraska’s Veterans Home, Bennet, Wayne, home of Wayne State College, Fremont, where the 17-year-old Crazy Horse and friends pestered Pawnee farmers in 1857, Callaway and McCook, home of George Norris, Ben Nelson and Bill Harris.

Anchored by The Reader, Nebraska’s only nationally-recognized alternative newsweekly, Pioneer consists of 6 media channels — two print, four online — with an established market share in Omaha’s fastest-growing and active demographic and advertising segments and one of the most established, local freelance content provider networks. A total estimated audience exceeding 100,000 adults makes Pioneer the only non-traditional local media company in the top 10 by audience size, demonstrating proven growth since its start in 1992.
Pioneer’s seeds were first planted in 1991 by a group of college kids involved in Omaha’s nascent homegrown music and culture scene, leading to a non-profit monthly that broke away from the stale and conservative reporting found in traditional local media. That all-volunteer effort became Omaha’s third metropolitan newsweekly since WWII and the first to be accepted for membership in the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies. The Reader’s first issue was published in February of 1994 by a group of five, including current publisher John Heaston, out of an apartment at 49th and Dodge. Things only grew from there.
Over the next decade-and-a-half, the paper endured a couple changes in ownership while a series of quality editors kept a keen focus on providing Omaha with cutting edge news and sharp cultural coverage, each issue complete with great writing, great presentation and the city’s most complete event listings. Over time, The Reader gained the trust of Omaha’s residents and eventually established itself as a staple of the city in its own right. Operations also steadily improved, as for a time The Reader was published out of a train car that was attached to a brewery on 78th and Cass (1995) before it enjoyed stints at offices downtown (1996-1999) and in historic Dundee (2000-2007) until landing in its current location in the immigrant hub that is South Omaha.
Also during that time, The Reader’s parent company, Pioneer Publishing, diversified into fast-growing consumer and advertising segments, including: TheReader.com (2002), ABM Enterprises-The Leader in Latino Print Publications (2004), OmahaJobs.com (2005) and OmahaJobs.com Job Fairs (2010).
Over the past 21 years, The Reader has published well over 25,000 stories, thanks to contributions from hundreds of creative individuals. In addition to event listings, edgy feature stories and vigorous coverage of Omaha’s music and arts scenes, staples of the magazine include an alternative health column by Michael Braunstein, a local column from Tim McMahan and the ever forward-looking Dr. Mysterian. For well over a decade, The Reader was also home to a mysterious horoscope written by local blues artist MoJoPo until his passing. We are publishing 30,000 copies each month that are distributed to roughly 450 delivery points.
Starting in 2008, The Reader team has also become a local leader in digital marketing services under the brand PioneerMedia.Me.
The experienced in-house staff and enthusiastic contributors that make up our Reader team are prepared to continue providing Omaha with the same honest, thorough and provocative coverage of the city’s culture and news as we transition into the age of new media. But whether you’re flipping through our pages or tapping around on your phone or tablet, we hope you’ll keep reading. It’s an exciting time to be in Omaha. It’s an exciting time to be a part of The Reader.
