In 1965, less than 20 years after immigrating from Greece to America, John Haretakis founded Spires Restaurants. Ever since then, Spires Restaurants has been part of the history of Southern California. His vision was simple: make good food easy to find. John built the first Spires on the corner of Euclid and Ball in Anaheim. The iconic shape of his buildings satisfied part of the recipe, the restaurants are easy to find! Besides the unique design and great locations, the buildings’s “Spire” shape inspired the name itself.
