Hero Profile » About Remon Karian
Remon Karian is known for his entrepreneurial spirit, his love to entertain and his passion for making others happy. Born to an Armenian heritage, Remon grew up rooted in strong family values, interwoven with tradition and, of course, delicious food. Remon credits his inspiration to his father, Marcel, who began the family legacy with his own Italian restaurant, Café Fiorella, in Belmont. It was in his father’s kitchen that Remon, at the age of 13, discovered his ability and love for cooking while learning to make brick-oven pizza. Having started to work at such a young age, Remon witnessed firsthand not only how satisfying and rewarding the restaurant business was but also how demanding. At 23, he combined the practical experiences and knowledge he had gained working in his father’s café, with the business acumen that he learned from Bentley University to start his own venture, Fiorella’s, in Newton, MA. It was the special bond of family, food, business and his love for hospitality that served as the key ingredients in the making of Fiorella’s.
