A ‘Big’ anniversary


Restaurateur Jimmy Eleopoulos, owner of Big E Pizza in Signal Hill, celebrated his eatery’s 25th anniversary on Wednesday afternoon with gifts for his customers: free T-shirts, pizza slices, soda and big pieces of birthday cake. During the festivities, Signal Hill Mayor Larry Forester dropped by to present Eleopoulos with an official proclamation recognizing him as a resident, business owner and “outstanding corporate citizen.” The restaurant, located at 3225 E. Pacific Coast Hwy., was opened in 1986, when Eleopoulos was only 19 years old. Pictured with Eleopoulos (right) is Maria Moyte, day manager, who has worked at Big E for 22 years.
