Immigrating from Greece, in search of a better life, Demetrios, Helen and Paula came to Bradenton in 1976. With recipes from the old country and help from family, “Demetrios’ Pizza House” was formed. They quickly attracted customers from all over the area who came for the great food, outstanding service and exceptional value. 1982 was a landmark year as the group applied for and obtained American citizenship. As Bradenton grew so did Demetrios’. Over the years several small remodels and renovations were executed to help suit the growing business.
The family working harder than ever now saw the need for a major overhaul of the existing property. In the summer of 2000, the immense change came in the form of a complete roof-off reconstruction and enlargement of the restaurant. 2007 brought the family full circle as the “American Dream” had been realized. Demetrios’ Pizza House was awarded the coveted “Small Business of the Year” award by the Manatee Chamber of Commerce.
For numerous years now through your continued patronage, we have garnered many of Manatee County’s most coveted awards. “Best Place for Lunch”, “Best Italian Restaurant” and for 17 years (and counting), “Best Pizza Place”
