It’s the end of an era for Shellharbour’s iconic fish and chip shop, Olympic Takeaway, as the Kollias family decide to hand over the keys after 36 years.

The shop was opened in 1986 by Theo and Helen Kollias and they’ve been running it ever since with the help of their two sons and daughter.

One of their sons, John Kollias, told the Illawarra Mercury they will miss their regular customers but it’s time for a welcome break.

“It’s hard because this is all we know, but [it’s time for] a new chapter in life,” John told the newspaper.

Over the years, Olympic Takeaway has continued to cook chips and potato scallops fresh and kept the ice cream bar and milkshake makers, even as other takeaway stores have adopted newer culinary trends.

Now a new owner has been found to take on the business. They plan to keep the shop functioning as a takeaway store.
