"Food so good, one man choking refused the Heimlich maneuver."
City Bites® was cooked up in an 800 sq. ft. store in Bethany, Oklahoma by three Blevins brothers, Brady, Gary, and Eric in 1986. With entrepreneurial skills in their pot from experience with a landscaping company, the brothers realized that they had a taste for operating a restaurant & bakery and decided to mix in a small amount of borrowed capital along with a large serving of sweat equity. Later, the brothers decided to mix in a special ingredient and stirred a fourth Blevins brother in, Mark.
This delicious recipe went on to win the 1991 Oklahoma Small Business of the Year Award and many more awards including the Oklahoman's Readers' Choice for Best Deli as well as the Oklahoma Gazette's award for Best Deli.
The City Bites® formula for success centers around the direct involvement of the Blevins Brothers, by being hands-on operators with constant contact with management, employees, and customers. City Bites® is proud to provide a work atmosphere that is relaxed and empowering to each employee with the ability to satisfy each & every customer. This kind of attitude has given City Bites® a reputation for quality service.
In October 2016, City Bites® celebrated 30 years of business thanks to loyal customers who've named us the #1 Deli in Oklahoma. We strive toward becoming the Best Deli in the country one day!
