AARON PLACOURAKIS
PRESIDENT & CEO

Founder/CEO Aaron Placourakis was raised around great food. And like all Greeks, he was instilled with the belief that family isn’t just limited to close relatives but to anyone who’s gathered around the table. It’s an approach that’s been perfected by his team who greet you at the door as a friend, not as a customer. This uncompromising style has been the key to the success of his restaurants for 35 years.
