Little Greek, a favorite in Richardson and Willow Bend, Texas, with Greek dishes created from traditional recipes, will open their third Texas location: Austin plans to open this May, at 2422 RR 620 South, Suite A-120. The opening will bring Little Greek to 12 locations. Currently, there are the two locations and a food truck in the metropolitan Dallas Market, and another nine locations in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. 

“We’re excited to bring our ‘Greek with an America twist’ menu offerings to the Austin area, as well as provide jobs for people in the community,” says Nick Vojnovic, president of Little Greek. "It will be a unique complement to the other restaurant choices in the area."
 
As stated by Ryan Robinson, City of Austin demographer, “Austin is an attractive place not only for its beauty, but also its gravitational pull for people.”
 
"I am very pleased with the strong sales growth all of the stores are showing, system average is up 20 percent, with the Richardson location leading the way with a 60 percent increase in sales over the previous year,” says Vojnovic. "Little Greek is now projecting 16 locations by the end of the year."
 
Little Greek provides dine-in, take-out, and catering. The Austin location will be open 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. seven days a week. 
 
In addition to Austin, the two Texas locations are in Richardson at 1920 N. Coit Road and Willow Bend at 3220 E. Hebron Parkway. The Tampa Bay area locations are in Palm Harbor at 320 E. Lake Road, New Port Richey at 9818 Little Road, Clearwater at 3700 Ulmerton Road, Westchase at 12117 West Linebaugh Ave., Carrollwood at 15225 N. Dale Mabry Highway, USF/Fowler Avenue at 2548 E.
