Pop’s Family Restaurant is not only a family run and operated Restaurant, it is a landmark with a story.
It all began with a man named Kostandinos Grigoriadis who is now called Gus. Gus migrated to the United States of America from his hometown
named Kassos, from Greece, in 1975, at the age of 17. He came over to this country with only what he was wearing and no money in his pocket.
He lived in New York and began to work immediately. Gus began his working experience as a dishwasher. He worked long
and hard hours to make money. Over the years, he married his wife Julia Grigoriadis and soon began a family.
In 1991, he was offered an opportunity that he had to take. He moved his wife, three daughters and himself to a better future. He left from the
Bronx, N.Y and moved to Milford CT. In 1991, Pop’s was a donut shop that was located on 587 New Haven Avenue. After several years, it was
brought to Gus’s attention that Dunkin Donuts was opening right across the street. With a big franchise as Dunkin Donuts Gus was left to make a
quick decision on what to do next. He knew if he stayed with a donut shop he would not be in business much longer.
He made the decision to renovate and become a Breakfast and Lunch restaurant.
After being in business in that location for 22 years Gus wanted to own his own Property. He and his family have built many relationships
with many customers and wanted to stay in Milford. Pops’s moved to 134 Old Gate Lane on July 8, 2013.
Gus and his family continue to work hard at doing what they love to do.
