July 2018: Three years after Oklahoma became a state, in 1910, a man by the name of Henry Kamp, arrived in Oklahoma by train. He was a German immigrant who was headed to the Pacific Northwest; however, when he stopped in Oklahoma City, he never left. From that time, his brother, William, and he started a small grocery store at the corner of NW 25th and Classen Boulevard. Over the years, they became an Oklahoma City icon well known for their quality meats, deli, bakery and most of all their outstanding customer service.
Fast forwarding to one hundred years later, Randy Kamp, a third generation Kamp, embarked on a new venture commemorating the Kamp brothers legacy. He opened the Kamps 1910 Café at 10 NE 10th St. Oklahoma City, followed by opening one at the OU Children’s Hospital, 1200 N. Children’s Ave., Atrium 3rd Floor, Oklahoma City and one in Edmond, 3325 S. Boulevard, Suite 175. The Café offers delicious breakfast and bakery items, coffee drinks which includes their classic Toasted Coconut Crème latte, smoothies, tantalizing soups, salads and a wide variety of wraps and sandwiches. How does the “Wrong Side of the Tracks Reuben” sound to you? It is served with their own special sauce! It is a crowd favorite! And, last but not least, they have adhered to their family’s commitment to outstanding customer service. This is definitely a place that you’ll want to visit!

The Made in Oklahoma Coalition, founded in the year 2000, is a group of 70+ Oklahoma food manufacturers, growers and producers dedicated to promoting brand awareness for Oklahoma made food and beverage products.
After over a decade of raising awareness for made in Oklahoma products, The MIO Coalition recognized that consumers in our state not only want to shop for local products at the grocery store, but they also want to support the Oklahoma restaurants that incorporate locally produced food and beverage items into their menu’s. Thus, in an effort to make this information more readily available to Oklahoma consumers the MIO Restaurant Program was born.
The Restaurant of the Month promotion was implemented to provide additional support and recognition to MIO restaurant members that go above and beyond the baseline requirements for membership by offering a robust selection of MIO products to their patrons. After each restaurant of the month is selected, a public voting process is implemented at the beginning of the next calendar year to determine who will be named MIO Restaurant of the Year. The winner of the MIO Restaurant of the Year campaign will receive a plaque of recognition, free advertising through MIO, a special feature on the MIO website and social media platforms as well as a $1,000 donation to the food bank of their choice.
