Like many great stories, this one begins at a party. It all started the night…
When you start a Great Greek Mediterranean Grill franchise, you’ll find all the professional freedom you’ve been looking for, and a supportive environment conducive to success. Most franchisees decide to strike out on their own because they need a change from their stifling corporate environment, have more flexibility in their job, and build something truly special. We pride ourselves not only on offering a financially viable franchise opportunity in a thriving industry, but also on creating an atmosphere where franchisees can make real connections with customers, and reap the unique benefits of a family-owned business.
A Change of Pace
A corporate job often means sitting at the same desk for eight hours, and doing the same monotonous routine things over and over again. Your schedule is not your own, and you probably have one or several superiors to whom you must answer. Consistency and routine isn’t a bad thing, but it often can lead to boredom and a lack of fulfillment. The fast-paced restaurant environment, with many different tasks to take on, is a thrill simply unmatched in the corporate world.
When you invest in your own Great Greek Grille franchise, you can decide what each day will look like. You can give your restaurant as many hours as you feel are necessary to ensure it’s running the way you want it. You’re responsible for your restaurant’s success or failure, and it’s up to you to determine your management style. It may require a great deal of work during the early stages, but once the franchise is running smoothly, many franchisees are able to take their foot off the gas and enjoy the well-oiled machine they’ve created. If you hire the right team, you won’t feel like you need to be present all the time, and really can take advantage of the flexibility of franchising.
The Customer Connection
The great thing about restaurants is that they’re gathering places, which foster a real sense of community. As a restaurant franchise owner, you’ll benefit from spending your day in an environment where people enjoy gathering and creating memories. In addition to giving you a degree of emotional satisfaction, making people feel welcome and fostering a community is key to your franchise’s success and longevity.
The Family-Owned Advantage
What makes the Great Greek Grill franchise opportunity truly unique is that the company is entirely family-owned. When we welcome a new franchisee on board, it’s like welcoming a new member into our family. The Great Greek co-owner Nick Anthony Della Penna says his family is “the whole reason I do this. If it was just for me, I’d be happy being back at the corporate job having a 401k and having a decent salary. Having two children makes it different. It’s about being able to provide for them and make their lives better.”
