For anyone considering entering the restaurant industry, starting a Mediterranean food franchise is the best decision you can make. We have our finger on the pulse of the restaurant industry, especially when it comes to the increasing trend of health-conscious and calorie-counting customers. Indeed, according to a recent U.S. News & World Report survey, Mediterranean cuisine is among the top healthiest diet trends for its plant-based foods and delicious olive oil. And we’re not just any Mediterranean food franchise.
To stand out in a crowded market, The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill puts tremendous emphasis on delivering an appetizing meal. With a menu designed to please carnivores and vegetarians alike, The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill offers a unique experience designed to cater to all demographics. We pride ourselves on bringing a variety of global flavors to local food lovers who value authentic ethnic cuisine. Known for its low-fat poultry, fish, and heart-healthy vegetables, Mediterranean dishes deliver a satisfying and healthy food experience.
This healthy balance gives us a competitive edge over other Mediterranean food franchises. From stuffed grape leaves filled with rice and fresh herbs to the classic Greek salad, diners will find themselves with a menu full of vegetables, lean meats, and Greek yogurt sauce. Additionally, the franchise caters to the entire family with affordable Family Meal Deals.
According to co-founders Nick Anthony Della Penna and Trent Jones, “There are some fads in the food industry, but Greek food isn’t a fad — it’s a lifestyle. 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. It’s an amazing concept, and we produce an amazing product. We’re confident it will quickly become the worldwide leader in fast-casual Greek food.”
“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.”
If you’re thinking of getting into the franchise restaurant industry, you should choose a franchise that appeals to a wide variety of customers, and has a balance of healthy and delicious menu items. That’s what makes the Great Greek Grill a premier Mediterranean food franchise.
