From the Kyrkos family

Our family is truly devastated from the fire at our beloved Suni’s Pizza that occurred Monday morning. (See previous article). We are grateful for the response and support of the Shoreline Fire Dept. and all personnel who responded. We are grateful that there were no fatalities or injuries, except for the minor injury suffered by one of the responding firefighters.

We are grateful for the amazing support and love we have received from this devastating fire from the Shoreline community and beyond.

Suni’s began in 1979, the dream of a Greek immigrant whose family continued to run the business until the tragic events of Monday. In the past 43 years, we have strived to become a place in the Shoreline community where people could gather and enjoy great food, reasonably priced, with friendly service.

We have watched many of customers have kids, get married, and then their kids have kids. We have watched our employees turn from dishwashers, to college graduates.

We are so devastated for our hard working employees, that we also consider family, as well as our loyal Shoreline community.

Lastly, we realize there are many questions regarding the origin of the fire and what will happen to Suni’s next. We are cooperating with the Shoreline Fire Department which is investigating.

We will address the future of Suni’s at the proper time.

--Nichole Kyrkos on behalf of Chris and the entire Kyrkos family.

We thank you for all the amazing years you've given us so far, and we all fervently hope that you are able to rebuild! Shoreline wouldn't be Shoreline without Suni's.

Don't want to be insensitive to the hardship but any chance you will set up a truck so I can get the Suni burger that is the best??

Anonymous 9:25PM Ye-gads! Did you really just ask that? Your brain needs to have a stern talk with your stomach. Smh.

I last saw Chris in 2021 and we reminisced about the opening of Suni's in the old Arctic Circle spot. Suni's has always been my favorite burger spot in Greater Seattle (as well as fantastic pizza). If they don't rebuild they will be sorely missed.

What is the status now? I see signs from a construction\restoration company on the fence protecting the property?

I miss Suni's so much. I sincerely hope you re-open. Your lasagna was my favorite comfort food. There isn't a week that I don't crave it and have to remind myself of your tragedy. Come back soon!
