‘Sky is the limit’: Greek Australians win in the Liverpool and Fairfield Local Business Awards


Greek Australians have done it again at the Liverpool and Fairfield City Local Business Awards 2022 with many winning in their respective categories.

In Fairfield City, Odontologie Dental Care won ‘Most Outstanding Dental Services’ for its commitment to providing patients with a high quality and ethical dentistry experience.

The dental surgery in Lansvale has been owned and operated by Ikarian migrant, Dr George Sakoutis, for 35 years. In the early years, his mum helped out as a nurse at the surgery, while his dad worked as the receptionist with his ‘big voice.’

Dr Sakoutis tells The Greek Herald he’s proud of how far the business has come and he’s “excited” to be acknowledged by the community in the Local Business Awards for the second time.

“Like many of us, I’m a migrant to the area and we were always challenged to do better, to do more, to go above and beyond, and I guess that frames us as a beacon of light and we’ve been acknowledged for quality and care,” Dr Sakoutis says.

“I just want to thank our customers and promise them that I will continue to provide the care that they so deservedly need.”

Elsewhere in the Liverpool Local Business Awards, Mobile Mechanics To You from Edmondson Park also won in the ‘Most Outstanding Automotive Services’ category.

The mobile mechanical business was first opened by Con Kavalieros five years ago and offers all types of vehicle servicing, repairs and maintenance for new or old cars, as well as cars under warranty.

Speaking to The Greek Herald, Mr Kavalieros says he was “very shocked” to win the award, but also “so appreciative and humbled” by the recognition.

“I’m certainly not the cheapest mechanic out there – I don’t want to be, but I’m definitely not the most expensive either,” Mr Kavalieros says.

“What I offer however is a good, honest and quality service at a fair price, with the convenience of not having to leave your home or office. I try to look after my customers like family, which is how I’ve built a reputation on trust and loyalty.

“I’ve got visions of growth and expansion which I’m working on now. The sky is the limit really, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”

To top it all off, the Greek-owned ZagSeafood at Stockland Wetherill Park also won in the Fairfield City Local Business Awards in the ‘Most Outstanding Seafood Outlet’ category.

The Liverpool and Fairfield City Local Business Awards acknowledge the drive and dedication required to succeed in business and recognises the best in local industry across over 25 categories.
