Granum, Owner of The Oaks, Reflects on 20 Years in Restaurant Business

Lori Granum, who has owned The Oaks restaurant in Warrenton for twenty years, said traffic, especially 18-wheelers on SH 237 in front of her place, has increased tremendously during that time. “It never stops, it’s just crazy – it wasn’t like this when I first came here,” she said Wednesday in an interview.

That doesn’t count the northbound antiques fair traffic entering Warrenton that backs up well to the south of her restaurant on big days.

Granum grew up in Milwaukee and said she has been working in the restaurant business since she was 13 years-old, working after school peeling potatoes and washing dishes.

How the heck did she end up running a restaurant “in the middle of nowhere?”
