Little Greek Fresh Grill, a fast-casual Greek restaurant with an American influence, has opened in SODO, according to Nick Vojnovic, Little Greek president.

“This is our ninth location in the Orlando/Central Florida market,” says Vojnovic. “We’re excited about our continued growth here.”

The franchise owner/operator is Ben Hedgecock. A Florida native, Hedgecock has managed or consulted at several Little Greek Fresh Grill  locations in the Tampa Bay and Orlando markets. Prior, he spent 10 years teaching English throughout Asia.

“SODO is a vibrant community,” says Jeff Rosenberg, Central Florida Area Developer for Little Greek Fresh Grill. “We are excited to now be open in Orlando’s downtown area.”

Little Greek Fresh Grill is located at 3128  South Orange Ave., in the Lucky’s Market Shopping Center. The phone number is (407) 704-4480.

Little Greek Fresh Grill also has Central Florida locations in Altamonte Springs, Celebration, ChapionsGate, Lee Vista, The Loop, Waterford Lakes, Windermere and Winter Garden. According to Rosenberg, an additional location in Winter Park will be opening soon, with at least five more expected in the market within the next two years.

Little Greek Fresh Grill emphasizes fresh Greek dishes created from generations of traditional family recipes, with its gyro pita, Greek salad and chicken items among the most popular. The SODO location offers dine-in, take-out and catering.
