Beechie's was founded in 1952 by Frank "Beechie" Bonazza and his wife Sophie. Beechie was an avid member of the community. He was a member of the Charter that founded the Chartiers Township Volunteer Fire Department, he was involved in the start of Chartiers Township Little League, and he played softball for Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. He also was a member of the Bears Club, Moose Lodge, and Washington Country Club where he played golf almost every day. While this location was undergoing remodeling, the bar was located next door for a brief time. Beechie and Sophie started with their famous hot sausage, still on our menu today, from Green Valley Packing using Gaido Brothers fresh baked rolls. From there they slowly expanded their menu, adding homemade soups and chili.
