In Memory of George’s Pizza in Carleton Place

George was an institution on Bridge Street for years in Carleton Place at 110 Bridge Street where the Hair Loft is now. Did you know that George’s actual name was Chris Eliopoulos? So why was the place called George’s? The original owner back in the early 80s was George Poulos and Chris was the third owner when he took over in 1991.

What memories do you have of George’s Pizza? I know George’s was a staple when my sons played minor hockey for the team.
