‘Omicron Family Restaurant’ Turns Tragic Name Association into Dollars

It’s not every day that your family restaurant becomes associated with a global pandemic, but when it does, you may as well take it with a grain of salt (*wink).

The word ‘Omicro’n is now famous for 3 things, it’s famously the 15th letter of the Greek alphabet, it’s the name of a wonderful restaurant in Wisconsin, and finally, it’s the name of the next big strain of coronavirus affecting the global pandemic.

The Omicron Family Restaurant’s owner told the local Fox News affiliate that his father, Bill Tsiampas, and uncle, John Tsiampas, started the Omicron restaurant together and have been in the restaurant business for over 50 years. They both came to America when they were 14 years old.

People apparently come in and take pictures with the sign now. And while they’re eating their fish fry, why not offer them a novelty t-shirt as well?

The restaurant has ordered custom “I got Corona at Omicron” T-shirts to turn a real negative association, into a double negative association.  The owner made it clear that the shirts will only be available at the Omicron Family Restaurant starting after December 13, so you have a couple of days before you need to start driving to Wisconsin.

The Omicron Family Restaurant is on Main St in West Bend Wisconsin, between the Pic N’ Save and Mavis Tires and Brakes.  They Serve everything from liver and onions to Denver omelettes and something called ‘poor man’s lobster’, which we hope is some kind of crayfish.

Omicron Family Restaurant says they offer something for everyone and include multiple choices in their cuisine, which includes American, Greek, Italian, and Mexican foods.

The restaurant is located in West Bend, which is about 40 miles north of Milwaukee.
