Sigrid Bratic and Nick Vojnovic, co-partners of Tampa Bay’s Little Greek Restaurants, will open two new locations in the area on Jan. 12 and Jan. 20.

The first, a franchised location owned by Fotis Giannoisis, located at 12117 West Linebaugh Ave. in the Westchase area of Tampa, will open for business on Thursday, Jan. 12.

The second, located at 2548 East Fowler Ave. near the University of South Florida in Tampa, will open on Friday, Jan. 20, making it the seventh location for the seven-year-old restaurant chain.

Throughout its growth and expansion, Little Greek has emerged as a favorite dining destination for those who savor its American-influenced, Greek-style fare and moderately priced menu options, which are made from fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, all served in a quick, family-friendly environment.

"This is an excellent location for our newest Little Greek," says Nick Vojnovic, co-owner of Little Greek Restaurants. "We are pleased to be a part of the vibrant Westchase and USF communities."

After serving as president of Beef ‘O’ Brady’s for more than 12 years, Vojnovic knows perhaps better than anyone how to grow and expand great restaurant concepts. After meeting Bratic and evaluating the restaurant’s potential, he became co-owner.

Multiple operations are slated to open not only throughout the Sunshine State, but also in Texas, where frachisees will more than double their operations over the next several years.

Though best known for its mouthwatering gyros and pitas, Little Greek provides a diverse Mediterranean menu that can make a visit to Little Greek a truly different experience each and every time. Crisp Greek salads, spinach pie, grouper, baked pastitsio, tender dolmades, and chicken or pork are among the menu’s top sellers, which will be available upon opening at its new locations. Signature American favorites such as turkey sandwiches, all-American burgers and even pita-pizza for kids make Little Greek an all-encompassing new option for excited Tampa Bay diners.

Both the new Westchase and USF locations of Little Greek will be open seven days a week, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Carryout and catering are available. For more information visit, www.mylittlegreek.com.
