Like many great stories, this one begins at a party. It all started the night…
All waistlines are welcome at The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill.
Low carbs, lean proteins—no problem. The Great Greek understands the health-conscious customer who counts calories and watches what they eat. A recent U.S. News & World Report survey ranks Mediterranean cuisine among the top healthiest diet trends for its plant-based foods and delicious olive oil. When it comes to a fast-casual franchise that promotes healthy eating habits, The Great Greek is the ideal chain restaurant.
Co-founders Nick Anthony Della Penna and Trent Jones know good food. Combined, they have more than 30 years of restaurant experience. They know the importance of catering to consumers who follow the hottest diet trends.
“There are some fads in the food industry, but Greek food isn’t a fad — it’s a lifestyle,” says Della Penna. “People are recognizing it as a healthy alternative. Our made-to-order dishes are built on traditional ingredients and centuries-old family recipes handed down from generation to generation.”
With more than hummus and a side of tabouli, Della Penna says The Great Greek prides itself on bringing a variety of global flavors to local food lovers seeking authentic ethnic cuisine. Known for its low-fat poultry, fish and heart-healthy vegetables, Mediterranean dishes can deliver a satisfying food experience minus the guilt.
“It’s an amazing concept, and we produce an amazing product,” adds Della Penna. “We’re confident it will quickly become the worldwide leader in fast-casual Greek food.”
The Great Greek has a competitive edge over quick-service restaurants because it offers a healthy balance. From stuffed grape leaves filled with rice and fresh herbs to the classic Greek salad, diners won’t be disappointed with a menu chock-full of vegetables, lean meats, and Greek yogurt sauce. Additionally, the franchise caters to the entire family with affordable Family Meal Deals. A National Restaurant Association survey identified healthy, ethnic-inspired food for kids as one of the hottest trends in 2018.
Area developers should consider franchising with The Great Greek if they want to establish a healthy, family-friendly restaurant experience in their prospective community. Franchisees can appeal to selective dieters through two revenue streams: in-store purchases and catering. With a proven Mediterranean menu, a well-trained team of employees, and a concept that never goes out of style, The Great Greek is poised to dominate fast-casual dining today and beyond.
