Senor Sam's opening
along Crater Lake Hwy.
WHITE CITY — A fifth Senor Sam's is due to open later this month on the busy Crater Lake Highway corridor. The Mexican deli is occupying the former Carousel Flower Shop at 7625 Crater Lake Hwy., and joins Ashland, Central Point and two Medford locations "It's a great opportunity because the corner of Antelope Road and Crater Lake Highway has one of the highest counts in town," owner Carl Tinsley said. "It's very busy, at least as busy as Biddle and McAndrews (roads)." Tinsley said the restaurant will add five employees to the present 20 in the chain. Ivan Florez and Vicky Cavesas will manage the operation. The chain was founded by Sam Tinsley, who opened the original Senor Sam's in the Medford Center in 1990. He sold the company to his brother seven years ago.
