Theo immigrated to the United States from a small village in southern Greece and began a restaurant with his brothers in Flushing, New York in 1969. When he married Stacy, also a native of Greece, the couple began to look for a smaller community to move to. Determined to fulfill the American dream they left their home country for, Theo realized Kalamazoo was an ideal environment to raise a family-warm, friendly people, good schools, and an interest in Greek food and culture! They moved here and bought a small restaurant on W. Michigan Avenue in downtown Kalamazoo, thus Theo and Stacy were the first to introduce Greek food to the Kalamazoo area. To give thanks to the community for welcoming and supporting the family, Theo and Stacy began offering free Thanksgiving dinners to the community in 1977. Although Theo passed on in 1994, Stacy continues this tradition to this day. Stacy invites you to come enjoy her rich Greek heritage of fine food and hospitality.
Tessie and Elliot met attending classes at City College in New York and married while Elliot was working on his Master’s Degree at Columbia University. After their second daughter was born, they decided to move to a personable community where they could raise their children. Leaving his teaching career at Queens College and her position at American Airlines, Elliot and Tessie joined the family and business partnership in Kalamazoo. Two years later, their third daughter was born.
Phyllis and George met in New York City while attending Queens College and married in January 1981. They moved to Kalamazoo in April 1983, where, along with Theo and Stacy, they opened the Westnedge Avenue location. In 1984, along with Tessie, Elliot, Theo and Stacy, the third location was opened on Portage Road. Having raised two sons here, Phyllis and George love Kalamazoo and proudly call it home.
Aiming to please with authentic Greek and American food, fast service, and reasonable prices in a warm and friendly atmosphere, the family proudly welcomes you to Theo & Stacy’s Restaurant.
