ARTHUR R. BLIESNER
Contributed by Karen Mitchell.
Among the younger representatives of commercial interests in Pueblo is
Arthur R Bliesner, a progressive and enterprising business man who is widely
known as the president of the Sanitary Ice Cream & Supply Company. His birth
occurred in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on the 17th of December, 1888, his parents
being F. C. and Mary Bliesner, who came to Colorado in 1907 and established
their home in Pueblo.
Arthur R. Bliesner, who acquired his education in the public and high
schools of his native city, was a young man of nineteen years when he
accompanied his parents on their removal to this state. During the following six
years he devoted his attention to the pursuits of farming and stock raising and
on the expiration of that period became identified with commercial interests,
establishing the Elite Ice Cream Company at Pueblo in 1913. This he conducted
until 1915, in which year the Sanitary Ice Cream & Supply Company was formed and
of the latter he has since been the president. Under his wise direction and able
management the business has steadily grown and prospered until its annual sales
now reach seventy thousand dollars. The plant is completely equipped in every
particular and most modern throughout, while the trade of the company is
constantly increasing. Employment is furnished to eight men and four auto trucks
are utilized in the conduct of the business.
On the 8th of July, 1914, Mr. Bliesner was united in marriage to Miss Ombra
Carbiener, by whom he has three children—Arthur R., Catherine and Robert. Mr.
Bliesner is a member of the Commerce Club and gives his political allegiance to
the republican party but has not sought or desired office, preferring to
concentrate his efforts and attention upon his business affairs, in which he is
meeting with substantial and »gratifying success. In leisure hours he turns to
hunting and fishing for recreation and in fact is fond of all forms of outdoor
life. He has won many friends during the period of his residence in Pueblo and
is popular in both social and business circles of the city.
