The Story of Bakluva
Bakluva was founded by the Neofotistos family of New Castle, PA and its mission is inspired by the story of our parents’ experiences both in early life in Greece and as immigrants to the US. In 1975, our parents moved from Greece to the United States. They both found jobs in the restaurant business and after many years of hard work, they were able to start their own restaurant in Grove City, PA.
Our mother is an incredible pastry chef and has been making her own baklava recipe for the restaurant, family, and friends for many years. It is loved by everyone who tastes it! With this in mind, we thought, “Why not share this love with others in our community?”
We founded bakluva with the mission to uplift our community and bring joy and happiness to family, friends, and loved ones.
We plan to do this in two ways:
- Encourage our customers to purchase our product as a gift to send to their friends and loved ones, and
- Donate a portion of our revenue to nonprofit organizations aligned with our focus
