Another day at your corporate job means another day sitting at the same desk for eight hours doing the same things over and over again. For some, this is fine! Familiarity and consistency are what drives them in their professional lives. But for others, this is a drag. Luckily for these people, the restaurant business exists. A fast-paced environment with many different tasks to take on, and the opportunity to have a life outside of a nine-to-five office job? Count me in!

A franchise owner with The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill will experience the flexibility of business ownership, but there needs to be passion and commitment to make the venture succeed. Like any other professional endeavor, owning a restaurant can be grueling work and involve considerable financial risk. Looking past this though, it can be a profoundly satisfying and exciting way to make a living. Everybody eats, and food is a universal language. By owning a Great Greek restaurant, you get the opportunity to connect with your community and bring people together through your food.

A restaurant is a gathering place, and as an owner of The Great Greek, you are tasked with creating a place where people want to meet and create memories. Many successful restaurant owners owe their success to being able to connect with customers on a personal basis and establishing long-lasting relationships with them. Making these connections and making people feel welcome gives owners the emotional satisfaction of creating a nurturing community.

Values play a huge role in owning your own restaurant. When you’re the boss, you can decide what your restaurant will value and represent. Providing healthy, local, or organic foods can be a very personal and unique way to display your values through your restaurant and show your customers that what you’re advocating for is important! Owning your own restaurant is an opportunity to encourage people to eat in ways that are consistent with your values, broadening their horizons while warming your heart.

Another great aspect of owning a restaurant is being your own boss and having a flexible schedule. Operating a Great Greek restaurant is no different. When you first get started, you give your restaurant as many hours as you can to make sure it’s running the way you want it. Being the owner, you feel responsible for the performance of your restaurant — as you should be! Owning a restaurant comes with a different level of accountability and responsibility than just working in the restaurant business. When your restaurant is thriving, so are you and you feel a great sense of accomplishment. After establishing your restaurant and getting it up and running, you can step away and take a vacation. You shouldn’t feel like you have to be there every day. Hire the right people to be responsible while you’re gone to ensure success with or without your presence.

The Great Greek co-owner Nick Anthony Della Penna made a vow to his wife to not let his restaurant business impact his family. He stresses the importance of working hard for his wife and two daughters, and he takes time off to be with them when he can. He says, “They’re 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.”
