In 1967, Mr. and Mrs. Bill Singas opened the first Singas Famous Pizza restaurant in Elmhurst, New York. During its first year of operations, Gregory Tsanis, our CEO and president went to work for Mr. and Mrs. Singas.
Greg was born in Greece, where he lived for 14 years before arriving in the U.S. with his family. In Greece, Greg learned that food is influenced by a variety of ingredients, which are combined by hand to create a distinctly unique meal.
Greg worked with Bill Singas for many years learning the art of making pizza and other menu items the way food was created. In 1977, Greg and his brother, Chris, purchased the business from Bill Singas. Together, they operated the original store in Elmhurst and branched out, opening new stores in the tristate area.
In 2004, due to an overwhelming number of requests, Greg decided to begin franchising the Singas Famous Pizza concept and product.
Today, after decades of building its reputation, Singas Famous Pizza is beginning the next phase in its history.
In its expansion, and in franchising the business and concept, Greg’s paramount concern is to adhere to the three core guiding principles that have made Singas Famous Pizza the success that it is today, maintaining its reputation for over 40 years: Quality and Consistency, Cleanliness and Customer Service.
THE SINGAS DIFFERENCE
Singas hand-made pizzas, salads, sandwiches, and pasta dishes, combined with fresh ingredients, make Singas distinct.
Our unique sauce recipe and dough recipe have been consistent over time and stay true to our original flavors and crispy crust our customers love. Singas prides itself on made-to-order menu items for each guest, served to each guest with the same personal attention.
