After years of working for the family business and growing up in the film industry, the owner Alex Galanis decided it was time to shock his friends and family and start his own restaurant. Oh, did we fail to mention that he never wanted to have a restaurant ever!?
Alex always wanted to carve out his own path and be in the film industry, which was a burning passion inside of him from a young age. In 2004, he got his chance to move to the coast and began what turned into a 7-year stint of working in the film industry. Rubbing elbows with celebrities and crews on sets for music videos, commercials, tv shows, short films and feature films were the backdrop for his time in BC and paved the way for his independence and business experience.
JDDJ'S has the pleasure of working with some great local people that offer some truly outstanding event services. From catering and event spaces to floral design and event planning, you can rest easy knowing great pride has been put into your special event.
