Nicholas Markopoulos, President
Nicholas has been involved with the restaurant industry nearly his entire life. As a child, Nicholas was raised by a restaurant owning, Greek family. His father owned the locally famous Maugus Restaurant in Wellsely, Massachusetts, which was a hot spot for Celtics, Red Sox, and Bruins players in the 70’s. In the mid 80’s Nicholas decided to venture on his own, and start his own diner, Nick’s Restaurant, in Hudson, MA. In 1989 Nicholas opened up Alpha Restaurant Equipment and Supplies, in a small 1,000 SQ foot building in Haverhill, MA. In the early 90’s, Nicholas moved Alpha to the centrally located city of Worcester, to another 1,000 SQ foot building. Alpha’s growth began to develop more, and more, to which Nicholas again moved Alpha. This time, the location was moved to a 3,000 SQ foot building on Main St. in Worcester. As the years went on, Alpha continued to grow more and more, to which Nicholas decided to move one final time in 2000, to our location now, a 30,000 sqaure foot, state of the art equipment showroom, on 2 Olde Millbury St, in Worcester. Since our final move, 16 years ago, Alpha has transformed into Massachusetts’ largest restaurant equipment showroom, for new, used, and small wares.
