(Casa Pollo-Home of the Portuguese chicken)
George Alexandrou was born in Sydney Australia to Greek parents Alex and Maria.
All facets of food has always been an integral part of George’s everyday life, with most weekends spent at family gatherings which saw relatives get together preparing & cooking traditional Greek feasts fit for Kings & Queens.
Georges’s family in the 90’s ran a successful chargrill chicken shop in Rockdale.
After many successful hard-working years, George’s parents retired & it was time for George to venture on and try something new.
George commenced his career in the IT industry which spanned over two decades. Although being extremely successful, George found himself working too much and never really having time to enjoy his real passion in life which was food and cooking.
In the back of George’s mind he was thinking it was time to make a change again, so what happened next some would call fate, others would call it destiny, whatever it was Casa Pollo in Cronulla was up for sale and that opportunity landed in George’s lap.
Without a moments hesitation George left the IT world & started the process of acquiring Casa Pollo and like the saying goes, the rest is history…wait not so quick.
George met Chef Dang whom was the existing genius behind the great food at Casa Pollo and together, they decided to join forces.
With George’s culturally enriched Greek dishes and Dang’s to die for Eurasian dishes (which stem come from a life time in the food industry) we bring you Casa Pollo today.
Our melting pot team of quirky cheeky and customer service professionals is led by none other than Dang’s daughter Moneeq.
Together we are focused on delivering & catering to every and all of our customer’s needs.
