After opening several restaurants in the New Jersey area, Steve decided to make the move to Florida. In 1986, the first Steve's Famous Diner was opened in the Daytona Beach area. Providing great food at a good value, Steve built the business into a success.  Steve Mavronas passed away, but his dream/legacy lives on through his children.
