The Gyro Shack announced an upcoming location that will bring its signature gyros to Nampa, Idaho. The restaurant, opening in late summer 2018 and situated at 1870 Caldwell Blvd., will expand the brand’s authentic Mediterranean favorites to the Boise suburbs.
Known for its customized Greek gyros and zesty sauces, The Gyro Shack is undertaking an Odyssey in Nampa in order to share a menu fit for Mt. Olympus with local foodies. The new location will feature both an indoor seating area and signature drive-thru window. Owned and operated by local resident Sean Kress, The Gyro Shack in Nampa will be the sixth location to open in the Boise area.
“Nampa locals love to try new restaurants in the neighborhood, and our unique Greek cuisine will fit right in with what people here want to eat,” says Kress, owner of The Gyro Shack of Nampa. "After trying the signature gyros I was hooked and knew that I wanted to be a part of something this special in the restaurant industry. I’m ready to bring my retail and business experience to Nampa with The Gyro Shack and can’t wait for locals to see what the brand is all about."
Kress brings more than 18 years of experience in retail to The Gyro Shack’s new location. Leveraging those skills, Kress joins the restaurant industry with a strong team of entrepreneurially-minded partners ready to make The Gyro Shack a success in Nampa.
“We know locals will be hooked the first time they try our fresh, imaginative menu,” adds Seth Brink, vice president of operations and development at The Gyro Shack. “We can’t wait to hear Nampa yell ‘Opa!’”
The Gyro Shack has long been known as a fast, affordable option for delicious Greek food. Founded by the Zaharioudakis family in Boise, Idaho, with recipes based on those lovingly crafted by its founder, the brand continues to corner the market on extraordinarily fast and uncommonly inventive gyro options that redefine quick-service Mediterranean cuisine.
The Gyro Shack in Nampa will keep customers’ time a top priority by providing a face-to-face window service and made-to-order gyros with meat carved Off the Spit® and fresh ingredients piled high before customers’ very eyes.
Gyro offerings at the Nampa location will range from the traditional to the extraordinary, such as the BLT and the Spicy Bacon Avocado. Vegetarian lovers of Mediterranean fare will also find plenty to tempt their palates, including a veggie gyro, Greek salad, and hummus and pita. The tzatziki and spicy green sauces are a delicious way to top off any order to perfection.
In addition to the exceptional customer experience, The Gyro Shack offers a distinctive franchisee experience that sets the brand apart. As a franchise run by former franchisees with more than 35 years of combined franchising experience, Brink and CEO Doug Miller manage The Gyro Shack with its franchisees’ best interest at the forefront.
As the brand continues to expand, The Gyro Shack is seeking additional qualified multi-unit investors with restaurant experience in the Pacific Northwest to join its team. The minimum number of franchises sold to an individual group is three.
