You can find Greek restaurants everywhere, including the middle of Saskatchewan, Canada in the city of Moose Jaw, population 33,890, many of them with a hankering for Greek food.
But they see the mural first.
Mad Greek owner John Iatridis partnered with artist Carly Jaye to paint a mural in tribute to his family and their journey in Moose Jaw, and they were touched by it, said Discover Moose Jaw.
It goes back in time to show momentous events in the family’s long history, a recreation of his parents wedding photo, a group picture of all his dad and uncles and the Ambassador Café that his family started back in 1963, which eventually evolved into Rodos Pizza and The Mad Greek, and much more.
“You only have 55 feet of wall and Carly said it best in a post saying 55 feet of wall isn’t enough to show what this family has done,” he said.
“Carly Jaye blew me away and I went to her with an idea and as soon as I saw it, I wanted to grab her and hug her,” he said.
