Everyone Asks: "Who is Bernie?"
Bernie’s is named after my grandfather, Bernie Shapiro, who
was described as one of the friendliest and most likeable men in the community. For sixty-seven years, he owned and operated Shapiro Oil Company and later Union Oil Company. Bernie's greatest joy was his family and friends. He had a natural love of people and his friends and admirers were from every walk of life.
Bernie was an active member of many civic organizations and, along with Union Oil, a quiet benefactor of many charities, including the Cedars Nursing Care Center, where he established the Shapiro Fund.
Bernie had a unique way
of making you feel like you were
the most important person in the
world. He always made everyone
feel welcome, and you'll always be welcome at Bernie's and Bernie's Foreside!
