A quest for a new business for the family lead Stan Dimakos to open up Champ Burger at the age of 16.
Along with help from his father Louie, mother Gina and younger sister Dini, Stan broke ground on a plot of land in Mulmur, Ontario in 1990 that would soon become known as Champ Burger.
Stan managed the restaurant all through his remaining years at the local High School, while also juggling duties as Student Council President, Seinfeld aficionado and all-around cool guy. Subsequently, Stan went on to receive his Business Degree from Ryerson University.
Today, Stan can be found juggling duties between the Primrose and Alliston locations.
If you've made it in to our singular location for one of our homestyle 100% pure beef burgers, striploin steak sandwiches, souvlaki's or fresh salads - thank you! We appreciate your patronage.
Champ Burger has been owned and operated by the Dimakos family since 1992. That's right, they started their journey in burgers around the same time you started watching Seinfeld. In fact, they built this restaurant from scratch and that's the same dedication, quality and focus they bring to their food and service.
Champ Burger ensures that their ingredients meet a high standard of quality that you can trust for your entire family. And there is always a friendly face to greet you when you walk through the front doors or pass by the drive-thru window.
Each year readers of the Orangeville Banner cast their votes for their favourite businesses in a wide variety of categories, including restaurants. Champ Burger was extremely grateful to be recognized as the "Best Hamburger" in 2017.
"We are very proud of the entire team," said Stan Dimakos, Founder of Champ Burger. "Our goal continues to be providing quality food along with an exceptional experience to each and every customer".
