Tucked away at 1010 E. 8th St., close to Centennial Park, is a modest building, and one of Tulsa’s Art Deco jewels. The Fire Alarm Building was built in 1930 and 1931 and was a response to the city’s growth in the 1920s.

Although Ed Richard’s family boasts a long history in the food industry, Richard did not initially plan to follow in that same path.
Richard, a Louisiana native, worked for an office product company during his college years at the University of Southwestern Louisiana (now the University of Louisiana at Lafayette). He ended up continuing with the company after graduation, and the company moved him to Tulsa.Read More
