named this restaurant after my father, George Gounaikis,
who has owned and operated a couple of pizza places.
He started making pizzas in 1967. George has taught my
brother Jim and I all about operating restaurants.
Our family worked together in the restaurant business;
I started working with my dad at age 11.
My wife Patti and I have worked together for over
20 years in this line of work. Yeah, we've had a few
arguments over the years. People have wondered how
we can work and live together. I'm proud to have
named this establishment after the man
who taught me what I know today,
my father George F. Gounaikis.
Now, it's going to be an honor to serve
the town of Northfield once again, hopefully for
many years to come. We hope your experience will be
an enjoyable one here at George's Vineyard.
