A FAMILY AFFAIR
Roseanna’s Italian Food has been serving up Italian comfort food in Krebs, Oklahoma, since 1975. What started out as a dream of Frank Prichard’s has turned into a long-lasting family operation. Loyal patrons return time and time again for simple, homemade dishes that represent an important part of life for the Prichard Family. These dishes are hand-crafted with family recipes that Frank and Rose Ann grew up with and served in their own home. With little access to extravagant ingredients and the need to keep 11 bellies full, they served many of the hearty dishes you see on the menu today.
Roseanna’s began as a carry-out restaurant on the west side of Krebs. It wasn’t long before customers requested a place to sit and enjoy their meals. The little restaurant was growing when Frank underwent heart surgery and suffered from a broken leg. In 1978, Roseanna’s closed its doors.
Within a year, the family decided it was time to re-establish Frank’s dream; even bigger this time. They purchased an old home on the east side of Krebs, and it took nearly a year of hard work for them to transform a house into a functioning restaurant. The new Roseanna’s opened its doors on January 30, 1980. Six years later, the family made enough to add on a large dining room.
Frank was able to enjoy his dream until 1988 when he passed away. Rose Ann and their children worked tirelessly to keep his legacy alive.
The year 2008 was hard. The family lost Rose Ann and her daughter Louise. Their passing left five Prichard children who chose to make Roseanna’s their livelihood. While they have great support from their siblings who have moved away, it is these five who work night and day to turn simple ingredients into the meals on the menu.
Frank and Rose Ann had a genuine love for serving great food. They wanted customers to have the best possible experience from the time they walked in to the time they walked out. They prepared dishes by hand with love and pride. Now, their children, several grandchildren and wonderful staff work to carry on that family tradition.
