Jimmy & Tia Tsafonias, owners of the The Greek Corner, immigrated to the United States from Greece in 1988. Jimmy had been living in the States, when he met Tia on a summer trip back to Greece. They married and moved back as a family determined to live the American Dream.
Both Jimmy & Tia had restaurant experience in their native Greece, so when they put down new roots in Boston, MA, it was natural that their journey would involve several successful restaurant ventures in New England. When they decided they’d like a change of scenery and climate, they packed up and moved, destined to bring authentic Greek Cuisine to Central Florida.
In November, 2005, the Greek Corner Restaurant was born. Within a year, it received the Orlando Weekly’s “Best Greek Restaurant” in their Best of Orlando Awards, making it the favorite Greek restaurant of many citizens of Downtown Orlando.
