Spirides Ailesinin Konukseverlik Hizmeti Geçmişi 

1910'da George Leonidas Spirides, Yunanistan'ın Sparta kentinden Amerika Birleşik Devletleri'ne göç etti. Sonraki 5 yılını New York'ta bulaşıkçı, aşçı ve çiçekçi olarak çalışarak geçirdi.

1915'te George L. Spirides, ülkenin en büyük gezici karnaval gösterisi haline gelen Strates Shows'un sahibi olan ilk kuzeni James Strates için çalışmak üzere Endicott, New York'a taşındı. O zaman gösteri, 50 çift uzunlukta vagonla seyahat etti ve 900 kişiyi istihdam etti. George Spirides, “Aşçılık Evi” olarak bilinen Strates yemek tesisini yönetti. Gösteriler arasında George Spirides diğer karnavallara ve kendi dondurmasını ve donmuş muhallebi imtiyaz satış noktalarını işlettiği özel etkinliklere gitti.

1940 yılında, George L. Spirides ve eşi Florence, sonraki 40 yıl boyunca yiyecek hizmeti kuruluşlarının ve konaklama tesislerinin sahibi oldukları ve işlettikleri Savannah, Georgia'ya taşındı.  

In 1942, This company’s Founder and President Harry G. Spirides’ uncle Bill Regas in Knoxville, Tennessee, hired and began mentoring at the Regas Restaurant a young, ambitious teenager by the name of Dave Thomas who later founded the Wendy’s Hamburger Restaurant chain.  Bill and Dave’s close friendship lasted for the rest of Dave’s life.

In the mid 1950s, George L. Spirides’ nephew George H. Spirides immigrated from Sparta, Greece to Savannah, Georgia and thoroughly learned the hotel business while working for his uncle over the next several years.

1960'ların ortalarında George H. Spirides, Georgia, Savannah yakınlarındaki efsanevi bir eski sahil resort otelinin kalan son bölümünü satın aldı ve sonraki 30 yıl içinde bu oteli işleterek genişletti ve modern 205 odalı, tam donanımlı modern bir otele dönüştürdü. Her yıl 100.000'den fazla misafir ağırlayan hizmet veren sahil resort oteli.

In 1966, George H. Spirides married his wife Frances who is originally from Knoxville, Tennessee and a member of the prominent Regas family of restaurant owners and operators.  Bill Regas (mentioned above) hosted U.S. Presidents, celebrities, and hundreds of thousands of other visitors at the famous Regas Restaurant and was President of the National Restaurant Association in 1980-81.  Working closely with her husband, Frances ultimately worked for 43 years overseeing front desk, housekeeping, and accounting operations in the Spirides family hotel business. She retired in 2009.   

In 1969, George H. Spirides mentored and assisted his good friend Cecil B. Day to enter the hotel business by designing and opening the world’s first Day’s Inn near Savannah, Georgia.  George H. Spirides subsequently became the first manager of the world’s first Day’s Inn.  George H. Spirides is mentioned on pages 69 and 111 of the book titled Day by Day which was authored by Cecil Day, Jr., Cecil Day’s son. That book was endorsed by four U.S. Presidents–Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford, and Richard Nixon.  In that book Cecil Day, Jr. refers to George H. Spirides as “an established motel wizard.” 

In the 1980s, George H. Spirides’ son Harry G. Spirides, the Founder & President of Spirides Hospitality Finance Company, began working in the full-service hotel industry at a young age.  Harry learned all aspects of the full-service hotel business while working for his father.  Over the next 30 years he rose up through the ranks of his family’s hotel company working in every position from Restaurant Dishwasher and Busboy to Front Desk Clerk to General Manager to Chief Executive Officer.
