Our History

Frisco’s Carhop Diner has been the dream of Takis Stathoulis, A Greek immigrant, vocalist, and  general contractor, and his wife Joanne Frisco Stathoulis, a creative artistic restaurateur. In 1981, they opened the first of their seven restaurants creating a 1950’s style diner, restoring the good old days of family dining. After years of hard work and dedication they have created a successful family business. Through Takis’ and Joanne’s unique and constant creative ideas, Frisco’s and the “Carhops” have been world renowned and have attracted people and the media from here and abroad.
