Big “M” Drive-In

BigM in PickeringBig “M” is a true icon of Pickering’s Bayridges neighbourhood dating back to its opening in 1965.  Young hockey players of this decade will fondly remember the original proprietor, Ted Papatheodorou, handing out free ice cream before and after they were bussed to their games in Cannington, the only arena around.    It is said that Glen Healy remembers Ted giving him free milk shakes after many a hockey game.

An original staple to the adults of the time, Big “M” was the place to go for a snack after dancing the night away at the Cabalaro Bar.  When Pickering’s Nuclear Plant opened, Big “M” became the lunch place and the after work place.  This is when Ted introduced his famous Kunga-Munga Juice delivered to you with a loud shout of “Arriba!”  The Big “M” is truly the heart of the community, offering 60 years of memories to generations.

The Big “M” has changed but slightly over the years.  Originally located across the street, it was renamed Massey’s in the early 80’s.  Then Chris Papatheodorou, Ted’s son, reopened Big “M” across the street where Bon’s Drive In was located.  He made sure keep the original façade of the building ensuring the endearing atmosphere of times gone by.  Chris had hoped to draw a little interest to his March Break opening by placing an advertisement in a local newspaper.  Much to his surprise, when it was discovered that Big “M” was being re-opened by “Ted’s Boy”, the line up stretched out the door and the legendary steak on a Kaiser was resurrected.

To further solidify Big “M’s” place in the community, Chris hires local teens just like his farther before him.  He supports the Pickering Panthers and Big Brothers & Big Sisters with Classic Car Cruise Nights.  Also, Big “M” was the host location for Darius’s Drumming and Bike Night in support of cancer research.  In July 2011, Big “M” will be holding a Bayridges reunion (rain location backup will be the 606 Legion).

Chris wishes to put one urban legend to rest – the “M” in Big “M” is for Macedonian and not for Frank Mahavalich.  However, let it be said that the legend of the Stanley Cup visiting Big “M”… is TRUE!
