Pop's Italian Beef and Sausage all started with Frank Radochonski. His dedication, hard work, and commitment to success have all paid off for the past 30 years. With the help of his mom Betty, family, friends, and hard working employees, his business continues to grow. The original store first opened March 24, 1980 in Palos Heights, IL. Frank was 23 years old upon opening the store with one goal in mind, to work hard. Nothing could stop this guy from making the most popular fast food restaurant in Palos Heights. Even though there are now many locations the one owned by Frank Radochonski is the first and original. He's behind the counter day in and day out, making sure his store is up to his standards and of course, able to say hi to one of the many well-known, everyday faces. His business continues to grow with these familiar customers, great food and good service.
