The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill is a leading restaurant franchise opportunity. We’re proud to stand out in a sea of Greek options and provide outstanding support to owners investing in franchise restaurants with us.
Greek restaurants are rapidly growing in popularity, thanks to increased awareness of the Mediterranean diet. The Mediterranean restaurant category is valued at $39B, and despite increased competition, the industry is expected to see continued growth. Named the best diet for the fifth year in a row, the Mediterranean diet is highly regarded for its reduction in the risk of diabetes, high cholesterol, dementia, memory loss, depression, and breast cancer. The diet has also been linked to stronger bones, a healthier heart, and a longer life.
Easy to follow with lots of delicious menu options, The Mediterranean diet is a safe and sensible choice that focuses on reducing and eliminating processed foods and incorporates fruits, vegetables, beans, lentils, whole grains, nuts, and seeds.
