In 1969 Nick Kolas opened the Apollo Liquor and Superette. A Proud Greek American—he wanted to come up with a name that evoked both of his heritages! He was watching the Moon launch in 1969 and thus APOLLO was born! The best of ancient Greek Mythology and the finest moment in American history! The name was perfect! The original sign still evokes the wondrous space capsule that carried Man to the moon!
From that auspicious start–Apollo Grew in Austin and Rochester to 10 locations of liquor and convenience stores. The Kolas Family is proud to be back in Austin and get back to our roots! We will always do our best to take care of the customers!
