<img src="http://www.blackbeardiner.com/images/founders.jpg" width="420"> ABOUT THE FOUNDERS In 1995, founders Bob & Laurie Manley, along with founding partner Bruce Dean, created the first Black Bear Diner in Mt. Shasta, California. In choosing a name and a theme for their restaurant, Bob, Laurie, and Bruce, immediately decided upon the black bear. It was a natural. The legendary black bear is native to the Mt. Shasta area, which was once known as Berryvale, due to the vast strawberry fields once enjoyed by bears and townspeople alike. The first Black Bear Diner sits on the site of these fields. The Black Bear Diner reflects our founders' upbringing in small-town America. Their restaurant concept sprang from a desire to bring home-style cooking and personal service back to the dining experience. While the Black Bear Diner reflects their creativity and concern for quality, service and value, our concept is built upon many years of practical experience in a variety of business endeavors. <img src="http://www.blackbeardiner.com/images/carver.jpg" width="420"> OUR BEAR SCULPTURES Everyone enjoys our signature bear carvings, done for us by Ray Schulz of Deer Park, Washington. Ray has been making our bears since 1999 and has carved more than 200 bears for Black Bear Diner so far. Carved out of cedar logs that Ray purchases from private loggers in Washington, the bears are styled to reflect unique aspects of the area in which each Diner is located. Ray has created such diverse bears as skiing bears to farmer bears, hunters to cowboys! Of course, most impressive of all is our 12-foot giant Black Bear - a common scene at each of our restaurants. Ray is a second-generation artist having followed in the footsteps of his father, a chisel carver. Pictured here with the next generation of Schulz carvers (Nick, age 5, and Katy, age 2), Ray started painting in oils at the age of 8 and moved to various forms of art until he found his passion, chainsaw carving, in 1992. A graduate of Eastern Washington University art school in 1994, Ray says he's living the American dream - doing what he loves! If you would like your very own carved Black Bear, or anything else for that matter, please give Ray a call at 509.276.9504 and be sure to say "hello" from the Three Bears of Black Bear Diner. <img src="http://www.blackbeardiner.com/images/muralguys.jpg" width="420"> OUR MURALS Black Bear Diner's murals were designed and painted by Steve and Gary Fitzgerals from 3 Friends Designs in Igo, California. Gary, brother Steve, and Roy Maloney founded this great design company in 1979. Steve has a BA from Morningstar College in Sioux City, Iowa. He traveled the world for many years and moved to Redding, California in 1975. Gary was raised in the Chicago area and has a BFA degree from Kansas City Art Institute and School of Design. He worked as an illustrator for an advertising agency in Denver before moving to Redding in 1973. Together they have created 110 murals throughout northern California. Most of the subject matter relates to nature scenes from the north state consisting of simple shapes and contrasting, dynamic colors.
