About Ma Fischer's Diner

My father, George Panos, immigrated to Canada in 1960 with a suitcase and $100 to his name. George met my mother, Sofia, in 1967 and they were married by 1968. My brother Joe and I came along shortly after. Soon, we moved to Chicago where my father worked as a butcher and a waiter. He longed for more. With the addition of my little sister Patty, my father decided it was now time to live out his American Dream. He found it in Milwaukee at 2214 N. Farwell Avenue. Jackie Fischer, the original “Ma” and owner of Fischer’s Sandwich since 1932, sold her business to my father in the spring of 1975. Six months later, my mother, siblings, and I moved into Ma Fischer’s with our father.
