The bougatsa dominated in Greece after the Asia Minor catastrophe from Northern Greece to Epirus and from Peloponnesus to Crete.
Particularly, however, it was naturalized as Serres, as in Northern Greece a large number of refugees from Asia Minor were housed.
The bougatsa has not lagged in popularity in Thessaloniki, all these years. In 1917, the trade union of bougatsa of Thessaloniki was established and two years later, it comprised 51 members, a number of unimportant people.
After 1922, the spread of bougatsa in Greece has accelerated and its art evolves. Today, despite its long history, bougatsa is still a daily desirable dish with devoted followers and its future seems to be so rich as well as its taste.
