Meet co-owners Lea Beaupre, Rafik and Ereen Ghaly a partnership created to keep the legacy of Billy's Pizza and Variety going and to continue providing excellent service to loyal patrons dated as far back as 1914.
Rafik and Ereen Ghaly, who live in Billerica with their two school-aged children, entered a partnership on July 17, 2014 with Billy Gauthier's mother, Lea Beaupre. Billy Gauthier, who died unexpectedly on April 5, 2014 at age 50, earned a reputation as a hard-working and generous man, and is deserving of having his name and legacy preserved.
"The store is still 'Billy's Variety and we have no plan to change that," says the Ghaly's, "Billy Gauthier deserves his name to stay on the business."
The partners will continue operating Billy's Pizza and Variety, as Billy Gauthier once did and only two other previous owners have done in the past century, with a dedication to excellent food & service to all our loyal and new customers for years to come.
