Felix Kambouropoulos, Vice President & Founder
Felix was born in Montreal, Canada from Greek emigrants seeking a better opportunity in North America. Always having the United States in mind as the final destination goal, Felix’s family worked hard to show and give him the opportunity to make it in the United States. After successfully operating multiple restaurants in Canada, the family sold their businesses, packed their bags for the American Dream and brought their knowledge and hard work ethic to the United States, where they successfully opened and operated businesses from 1980 and on in three different states.
After the college years, Felix decided to follow in his family’s footsteps. From a young adult, Felix was given the opportunity to run his family restaurants and retail markets. He was fortunate to learn the unique skill of management and leadership of many employees for well over a decade. By the time the family moved to South Florida in 2001, Felix was ready to take on a challenging task of opening a new restaurant named the Upper Deck Ale & Sports Grille from the ground up beginning with the construction & design of the building and ending with the daily operations of the facility.
16 years later, in 2018, with the knowledge passed through his family and hard work, Felix helped turn the Upper Deck into a staple in the community and a financially thriving profitable restaurant.
In 2007, at the height of the restaurant’s success and operations, Felix founded Casino Massage Services (CMS). Felix saw this as a once in a lifetime opportunity and decided to partake in the opening of another successful business venture, his first without his family involved.
Casino Massage Services was an idea captured in the midst of a Las Vegas Event, where Felix came up with the business plan for massage in Florida casinos. Upon his return to Florida after the WSOP, CMS was launched in two South Florida casinos, The Isle of Capri Casino and Gulfstream Park Casino.
Since the opening years, Felix has helped grow the company to over 120 massage therapists operating in multiple states including Florida, Maryland, Pennsylvania & West Virginia. CMS has been in business for over 10 years and has always been recognized as one of the leaders in tableside massage industry.
