The great diligence and hard work of the owners and all the employees brought the business quick success and a good name. In a few years, it expanded to five branches in the city, among which the most prestigious was the Slamič Delicatessen on the ground floor of the Slon Hotel. This deli, equipped ahead of its time, with the latest materials and technology, offered a rich selection of homemade, meat delicacies, such as the Slamič hotdog, bread roll with ham, bruschetta, cold roasts and even imported French and other delicacies.
Before the end of the 1930s, in addition to the famous Slamič restaurant, butcher’s shop and delicatessens, the Slamič business successfully launched a meat and “sočivne konserve” production line, on the outskirts of the city, near the Tržaška street in Vič.
The time following the Second World War was no longer favourable to Slovene entrepreneurs. The wave of social change, with company nationalization and state acquisition of family businesses, dramatically interrupted all the business activities of the Slamič family and radically changed its fate.
Since 1997, as descendants of the Slamič family, we have worked with great effort and love, to revive the house’s former glory, in order to enrich its tradition with new life.
