RALEIGH, NC – The Feta Flav Greek food truck is a popular, if constantly moving, sight around Hendersonville, NC and has been so successful for owners Alex and Ashleigh Baxevanis they’re opening a taverna by the same name too.
“Thanks to my parents, working hard comes naturally. I was born in 1980. I’ve been a part of the restaurant business all of my life … I was born into it,” 43-year-old Alex Baxevanis told the Times-News.
“Thanks to my parents, working hard comes naturally .. I’ve been a part of the restaurant business all of my life … I was born into it,” he said, talking about mom and dad George and Marie Baxevanis.
They opened their first restaurant in Winston-Salem in 1979, with just $84 in their pockets and that famous Greek work ethic that works so well in the hard, but rewarding, hard work of running Greek diners.
“You have to want it, and you have to work for it,” George Baxevanis said and his son knows that. “It’s always a lot of work, but it’s worth it,” Alex Baxevanis said ahead of the taverna due to open in December.
