Starting a Greek restaurant business with The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill is a great opportunity. Fast-casual restaurants are growing in popularity, and The Great Greek has mastered the concept. While The Great Greek has built up a strong reputation both as a franchisor and as a great place to eat, not everyone realizes that we’re part of United Franchise Group (UFG). UFG is a franchising powerhouse that’s been around since 1986. Having them behind us allows us to offer top-notch resources and gives us great insights into the changing market. Learn more about UFG and how their partnership is a valuable asset.
What is UFG?
UFG was born when Roy and Ray Titus founded the first Signarama store in 1986. The small sign-making business quickly became a success, and the two realized that franchising could allow them to grow most effectively. Before long, the two began to invest in other franchise brands and to expand throughout the U.S. and the world.
Today, UFG operates more than 1,600 franchises in 80+ countries. They even offer franchise development services to other franchisors through Accurate Franchising, Inc. You’d be hard-pressed to find a group of people that know the industry better! UFG is still a family business, and they treat every franchisee like an extension of that family.
UFG and The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill
When UFG realized the great potential for starting Greek restaurant businesses, they welcomed The Great Greek to their franchise family. The Great Greek is also a family business, founded by restauranteurs whose experience goes back generations.
UFG recognized that The Great Greek checks all the boxes when it comes to a restaurant franchise. We are:
- Fast-casual, allowing for maximum convenience
- A restaurant that prioritizes quality and freshness
- A flexible format that can open new restaurants in a variety of locations
How UFG Strengthens Our Brand
UFG brings a lot to the table for The Great Greek. For one thing, they’ve helped us to streamline our processes. Now, it’s easier than ever for franchisees to get new locations up and running. For instance, they’ve helped us to develop a training program that effectively covers virtually everything you’ll need to know about how to run one of our restaurants. Furthermore, they’ve revamped our marketing systems, so we’re better able to spread the word about The Great Greek to new customers. This is a terrific benefit for our franchisees!
They’ve also helped us unlock great opportunities, such as multi-unit ownership, for our franchisees. Now, it’s easier than ever to open additional locations, and our franchisees enjoy exclusive discounts on our franchise fee when they do so. The only thing better than starting a Greek restaurant business is launching two or more! UFG wants all franchisees to be able to achieve sustainable growth, and multi-unit opportunities are just one way to work to achieve that goal.
