Although the coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc on our local economy, two seasoned restaurateurs see a light at the end of the tunnel in the form of new restaurant possibilities and business ventures for aspiring small business owners.

Starting June 2020, Green Market Cafe Franchise Development Group, comprised of Nick Vojnovic, president and majority partner of Little Greek Franchise Development, LLC, and Andrew Koumi, Owner of local Tampa Bay group Green Market Cafe, is offering lucrative franchising opportunities.

Despite a recent dip in the restaurant industry, Koumi’s Green Market Cafe concept has triumphed during the coronavirus pandemic by pivoting its focus on online ordering, family-size meals, curbside pickup and off-premise sales via delivery apps.

Operating quick-serve restaurants, such as Green Market Cafe, offers numerous advantages over full-service concepts, including less capital-intensive investments and more off-premise generated revenue, which is the future of the industry,” Koumi said.

Potential franchisees will also benefit from lower-priced commercial leases and highly-motivated landlords, as a silver lining emerging from the pandemic.
