Longtime Amelios owner Christopher Scodras told the Montreal Gazette in 2010 that he "resisted all offers to franchise. I didn't want to lose the personalized, family touch. The most important person is your customer. They've got lots of restaurants to choose from."

One less restaurant, as of recently. Amelios, open since 1985 on Milton in the McGill Ghetto, is now under possession of a trustee.

A second Amelios on Bernard in Outremont was short-lived and closed in 2013. The Scodras family was not immediately available for comment today. Stay tuned for more details.
