The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill is opening its second Orlando area restaurant, later this year located at 335 N Magnolia Ave in downtown Orlando. The restaurant will be located in the Skyhouse building across from the courthouse.
The Great Greek opened its first Orlando area restaurant in Winter Garden (Hamlin) off New Independence Parkway in October of 2019. Both locations are part of a multi-unit development agreement for 20 locations throughout the greater Orlando area with franchisee Kevin Carmean, a local businessman and entrepreneur.
“When we dined at The Great Greek in Las Vegas we knew it was exactly what we were looking for,” says Carmean. “We have enjoyed serving the local Winter Garden community for the past year and we are excited to bring our passion for homegrown Mediterranean food and hospitality to downtown Orlando.”
“We are thrilled to celebrate the brand’s second of many locations with Mr. Carmean, our Orlando area franchisee,” says Jim Butler, President of Great Greek Franchising, LLC. “We really focus on delivering a terrific guest experience and our guests consistently tell us they enjoy our healthy menu choices without sacrificing flavors and enjoy being served in a friendly comfortable environment,” said Butler “which is contributing to the ongoing rapid growth of our brand globally and throughout the USA.”
The award-winning chef inspired menu at The Great Greek features homegrown recipes and big bold flavors like the fan favorite traditional Gyro (Yee-Ro) as well as Lamb, Steak and Chicken Souvlaki platters. In addition, guests crave our four-signature house-made dips featuring Hummus, Tzatziki, Melitzanosalata and Tirokafteri (spicy roasted red pepper) as well as our made to order Fresh Feta Fries. Guests can also indulge in the must-have desserts like Baklava Ice Cream or Rice Pudding. The Great Greek offers a wide variety of customizable options for guests to enjoy, including a classic Greek Salad with a choice of Salmon, Shrimp, or several other protein choices. Everything is prepared in-house with fresh ingredients that bring traditional flavors from recipes passed down generation after generation.
Currently, The Great Greek has franchise agreements in place for over 85 locations domestically and internationally. The brand continues to receive high interest in multi-unit franchise development deals.
