Boise’s Hercules of Greek cuisine, The Gyro Shack, announced a new location that will bring its signature gyros to Everett, Washington. The new store, opening in spring 2017 and located at 6500 Evergreen Way, will expand the brand’s unique, authentic Mediterranean favorites to the coast.
Known for customized Greek gyros and zesty sauces, The Gyro Shack is undertaking an Odyssey from Boise to Everett in order to share a product fit for Mount Olympus with local foodies. The location will feature two convenient drive-up windows and a patio for outdoor seating.
Operated by Tony and Kristen McNulty, The Gyro Shack in Everett is the first of three locations the McNulty’s will open in the area. The new location will kick start brand expansion in the state with 22 locations slated to open across Washington, marking the beginning of the brand’s Pacific Northwest growth.
“We believe that all it takes is one taste of our gyros to make a first-time customer a lifelong fan,” says Seth Brink, vice president of operations and development at The Gyro Shack. “Once Everett tries our fresh, imaginative menu, we know they’ll be hooked.”
With extensive experience in franchising, Tony McNulty brings a wealth of industry knowledge to the location, priming the Everett restaurant for success in the Washington market.
Founded by the Zaharioudakis family in Boise, The Gyro Shack has long been known as a fast, affordable option for delicious Greek food. 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 Everett keeps customers’ time a top priority. The experience provides 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. Devoted fans will also enjoy a loyalty program that allows customers to earn points per dollar spent, with a free gyro just for signing up and another free gyro for every 50 points earned.
Gyro offerings at the Everett 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 in mind.
The Gyro Shack is always looking for qualified franchisee applicants in the Pacific Northwest. The brand is seeking current multi-unit franchisees with restaurant experience. The minimum number of franchises sold to an individual group is three.
