Our Vision is to be an ambassador for the Gospel to the Continental United States within ten years, utilizing TV, books, press releases and social media.”

    CEO: Peter Demos

    MEMBER SINCE: 2014

      President and CEO of Demos’ Brands and D’s Seas, Peter Demos has food service coursing through his veins, having grown up in his parents’ restaurants. After becoming a lawyer, he turned back to his heart’s calling, the hospitality industry. Today, Peter is a successful restauranteur, winning Restauranteur of the Year, among many other Best Restaurant awards, with four Demos’ Restaurant locations, two PDK Southern Kitchen and Pantry restaurants, and Peter D’s catering, offering a lineup of authentic dishes the family spent many years developing. Peter is also a speaker, inspiring business owners and people of all walks of life to lead with courage and purpose. His first book, Afraid to Trust, was released by Gazelle Press April 30, 2019, and can be ordered at www.Afraidtotrust.com. C12 has had the greatest impact on Peter through the direct, honest feedback he gets from his peers sitting on the board. The encouragement and constructive advice Peter receives has been a huge help and has given him a tremendous number of ideas on how to share the Gospel through his work.
