Chicago Couple Moves to Atlanta Just to Introduce Their Favorite Brand of Pizza

September 3, 2014

Iryna and Ihar Dziatko know the value of hard work. When they emigrated from Russia 14 years ago, they didn’t speak any English and had a 7-year-old daughter to care for. After coming here with nothing, the Dziatko family hit the ground running, attending school full-time to learn English while also working full-time. The couple worked hard and saved carefully, and in 2008 they opened their own business, a Sarpino’s Pizzeria, in Naperville, Illinois. They sold the business in 2011 and opened a new store in North Aurora, Illinois in 2012. One year later they sold that location and moved their business to Atlanta. Their first Sarpino’s Pizzeria at 1000 North Side Drive NW, serving the greater Midtown area, is slated to open in August, with plans to open two more locations over the next two years.
