The Original Pappas Pizza Owner

Filimon Sgouris

He sits on the couch with a paper towel perfectly rested along his big belly and on top of that, a small ten inch anchovy and pepper pie, his favorite, with eight tiny slices. He picks up his very first slice and devourers it in almost one bite. He swallows, takes another bite of the crunchy crust and cracks a smile. After forty-eight years his recipe still tastes the same and he’s proud.

There are not many small businesses that survive these days with everything being bought out by bigger and better chains and franchises.

The ones that tend to last are family owned and operated and that is why Filimon Sgouris’s business lasted to this day.

Filimon Sgouris is one of the many small business owners in Stamford Connecticut. As an immigrant of Greece he first came to this country in 1966 and worked his way up to finally owning his own pizzeria.

Although he is now retired and leaves the management up to his oldest daughter, he still comes up to visit as often as he can from his new home in Florida and always is set up perfectly on the couch with his small pie, to once again indulge in his recipe.

“Everyone asks about Pappa,”says Juan Romero, one of the workers at Pappas Pizza. Juan worked along side Filimon and has been with the business for so long that he speaks Greek fluently. “I always remind them that he’s still around, just not living in Stamford anymore, but everybody gets such enjoyment when they see him here,” says Juan as he glances at Filimon at the back table. “They love him.”
