A little background on Red's Tamales...the slogan was coined by Bruce (Sir) Sedley in 1963 while working at an ad agency in Orinda, CA, and voiced by Mel Blanc...
Another Bay Area eatery was Chicken Delight..."Don't cook tonight, call Chicken Delight
" and they had a VW with a chicken on it as their delivery vehicle... Founded in 1952 in Illinois they had over 1,000 franchises in the 1960's nationwide. eventually sold to a company out of Winnipeg, Canada
