The Leon Story
An American Dream
As a way of saying thank you to their customers, the family began a tradition in 1991 of providing free turkey dinners, served the Wednesday before Thanksgiving at their Dearborn restaurant to anyone wishing to join them.
Like so many others who came to this country, Sam Leon and his brothers, Wally and Moe arrived in the United States in pursuit of the American Dream.
After six years of hard work, perseverance and dedication, Sam with his brothers fulfilled their dream in 1983 by opening Leon's Family Dining in Novi. The success of the restaurant allowed the brothers to eventually begin seven more restaurants in the Metro-Detroit area.
Sam and his brothers are thankful for their success and grateful for the support they've received from their business partners, their dedicated and hard-working employees, their loving family members and of course their loyal customers.
