Theofilos Nikitiades opened Teddy’s in 1973 and his hard work and commitment to the eatery contributed to its success. His son, George Nikitiades, took over Teddy’s Restaurant after his father’s passing in August 2011.
“It was always my dream to continue my dad's legacy,” Nikitiades told Patch. “He believed in family values and taking care of his customers. I hope to continue this tradition along with my family for many years to come.”
Since taking over the restaurant, Nikitiades said that he has made many new improvements, but has maintained Teddy’s charm and character. He and his family live just steps from the restaurant and plan on remaining in Cranbury Township for many years to come.
“I view this anniversary as a tribute to my late father, Teddy Nikitiades and mom Catherine. I'm extremely proud of what they have accomplished and would like to honor their effort,” Nikitiades said. “I expect a great time to be had by all who attend.”
Teddy's Restaurant is located at 49 N. Main Street in Cranbury Township.
