Locally Owned by Bill Georgiou

Bill Georgiou is the USF grad who started The Burg Bar & Grill after operating his family’s Greek restaurants here locally. His mom Maria is responsible for contributing family recipes that help make the restaurant…and same with their Burg Diner, which I’ll write up down the road!

I found this in an article on the St Pete Catalyst:

“the 1960s and ‘70s, the Georgiou family visited the Tampa Bay area regularly, as a sunny respite from the frozen tundra of Windsor, Ontario. They resided in Greece for a few years. In the early ‘80s, they moved the whole enterprise to Pinellas County. The family’s first Floridian endeavor was a Seminole Blvd restaurant called Grecian Gardens. Mama Maria prepared the food, based on family recipes, and everyone – young Bill included – waited tables and worked the kitchen.”

I mean they really do have an array of savory, greasy and yummy options that we all need sometimes, or all the time…”. Link to their article in comments.

After being cooped up for portions of 2020 (lockdown) Mike and his son decided to get out and explore, helping spread the good word about the local area he loves so much. Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media!

Soon after receiving his bachelors in Management Information Systems, Mike developed and then operated a vacation rental advertising business for 10+ years as CEO/Owner. The business was eventually acquired by VRBO. Mike has earned the trust of many large clients over the years. Such as NFL, Wynn Resorts, Blue Cross Blue Shield, VISA, Genuine Parts Company (NAPA Auto Parts), AT&T, and other Fortune 500 companies.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
