Our History

George and Lois “Mickey” Perry opened the Arvada Villa on July 26, 1960. They had all the right ingredients for a successful restaurant; a good location in the 60′s Arvada, hospitality and of course great food.

In 1968 George had a bicycle for sale and a 10 year old boy named Jim Gibson wanted to buy it. He went to work for the Perry’s doing small jobs. He not only bought the bike, in 1995 he bought the Villa after all those years of continued employment.

Monica started as a waitress at the Villa in 1979 after her Dad telephoned the house and told her that “George needed a waitress.”  She quickly fell in love with the business.

After many years of hard work, Jim Gibson decided it was time to step down from the place he grew up in.  The timing was right, and Monica jumped in with both feet.  Her husband, Tom, backed her decision 100% and does so much around the restaurant all with a smile and good conversation.

Thankfully, all of the wonderful, long time employees decided to stick it out with her.

Mark Schnabel, who went from delivery driver to pizza cook to the brains behind the operation now keeps the restaurant running smoothly and the food tasting amazing.  Without him, nothing would work.

When you come to the Villa not only will you enjoy great food which includes homemade pastas, incredible sausage and the best pizza around, you will find the atmosphere is one of a kind. Generations of families as well as employees have called the Arvada Villa their “home away from home” for over 50 years.
