Biography

American businessman and politician. Once a a member of the Republican party, he made his millions in a convenience store chain named after him, Christy's Markets, that had been founded by his Greek immigrant grandfather. Mihos got his start working at the first store. In the mid 1970s he and his brother took over from their father and considerably expanded the number of stores, which they then sold to 7-Eleven chain in 1998. Mihos eventually bought back 10 of the Massachusetts stores and continued to operate them successfully. He was appointed to the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority in late 1998 but political disagreements forced his resignation. He subsequently cast an unsuccessful as an Independent for governor of Massachusetts in the 2006 elections. He is likeable, witty, a slight man with a shock of graying hair, wire rim glasses, a seemingly perpetual tan, and a strong Massachusetts accent. Despite his appeal to small businessmen he lost by a landslide, taking only 7% of the vote.

He married Andrea Argeros in the mid 1970s and the couple has two children.

In July 2007 he underwent surgery for prostate cancer and had cancerous skin lesions removed as well.
