A Few Words About Corfu Foods

CORFU FOODS, INC. is a leading manufacturer and marketer of the highest quality gyros meat products.

Founded by Mr. Vasilios Memmos in March of 1970, the company has always had its headquarters in
Bensenville, IL.In the early spring of 1970, Mr. Memmos observed that the popularity of the "Gyro
Sandwich" among Greek restaurants in Chicago was overwhelming. At the time each restaurant
had the burden of creating their own individual mix. What he found to be missing from the market
was a standard gyros formula, with a consistent taste and spice profile.

With that in mind he started to manufacture and distribute Corfu Gyros, in the beginning supplying
just a few select Greek restaurants on Halsted Street in Chicago’s Greek-town

Today CORFU FOODS owns and operates a state-of-the-art, 105,000 square foot, USDA approved
facility. Their products are supplied to over 300 distributors in 50 states and exported to Canada,
Mexico, Japan, the United Kingdom and the Caribbean. Along with the production of gyros, CORFU
FOODS has expanded its product lines to include, among other items, beef patties, chopped steak,
Italian sausage, Italian beef and breakfast sausage links. These products cater to both the food
service and the retail markets

CORFU FOODS is a privately held company. Mr. Memmos is the President and C.E.O. and plays
an active role in all facets of the business with the same determination and enthusiasm as when
he started in 1970.

In 1997 CORFU FOODS partnered with MEDITERRANEAN PITA in Astoria N.Y. The two companies,
with their combined lines of manufactured and imported products, offer their clientele an impressive
variety, peace of mind and security that comes along with our quality assurance and the convenience
of having two major storage/distribution centers; one in the North East & one in the Mid-West.
