Pete Poulos

 

continued

From Muskegon he moved to Grand Rapids, where he sold shoes and met the woman he'd marry the next year. After a stint in the army, he managed Kinney shoe stores in different cities before returning to Muskegon to open a Coney Island in 1963. Six years later, he moved to Ann Arbor to open Frank's with his brother-in-law, Frank Petropoulos. The two later sold the restaurant and opened the Delta at State and Packard, a favorite of the Michigan football, hockey, and baseball teams.

"When we were kids, and he was at the Delta, he'd go to work at 7 a.m., come home to nap between 3 and 5, then not come home until 11 or 11:30," Williams recalls. "Every night. He did not take a day off."

When Petropoulos returned to Greece in 1983, Poulos sold the Delta and returned to Frank's as manager. Six years later, he bought the business. He's still there, cooking breakfast and lunch daily.
