Start with a wonderful concept. Then, you’re going to stir in the freshest ingredients, fold in quality service and sprinkle in 30 years of experience in the hospitality industry. What do you have? The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill! You’ve been to several restaurants, but we’re sure you have never experienced anything like what The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill can offer.
As you conduct your extensive research into investment possibilities, you’re learning about the many variances and nuances within the restaurant industry. You’re aware of the quick-service service models, the restaurants that crank out product in a factory-like atmosphere, devoid of any character. You have your full-service restaurants, with unnecessary overhead. Fast casual offers the convenience of fast food with some of the perks that come with full-service. And then there’s The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill. We’re somewhere nestled between fast casual and something you would find at a beloved family member’s house.
It’s not a myth: The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill is better than your neighborhood restaurant! We were established in 2011, using authentic third-generation Greek family recipes. We offer a family-friendly atmosphere and serve dishes with bold flavors and healthy options.
Nick Anthony Della Penna and Trent Jones, the Great Greek Mediterranean Grill’s co-founders, strategically developed a concept that brings the best of the values you’ll find in your very own kitchen and delivers them to a loyal and growing customer base. How does the Great Greek know it is better than your neighborhood restaurant? The proof can be found in the just-prepared meal that is now arousing your senses.
“People are looking for quality in the products,” explained Della Penna. “We pride ourselves on freshness and quality. A lot of people make those claims, but what we consider fresh is literally lettuce that’s chopped right before it hits your plate. ‘Fresh’ is when you put it on the grill and then take it off and put it on your plate… that’s fresh. The ‘make it in front of you’ thing is a convenience thing, not a fresh thing. We make it to order. That’s what makes us a little different.”
