Tampa-based Little Greek Fresh Grill, which now has 31 locations in five states, is poised for continued growth during 2017, including its first location in Ohio, says Nick Vojnovic, Little Greek president.

“In addition to Boardman, Ohio, our calculated growth for 2017 will include openings in Riverview, Florida, and Plano, Texas,” says Vojnovic. “We are on target for additional openings during second quarter 2017 in Winter Garden and Lake Nona, Florida. We plan to open eight new locations during 2017.”

Vojnovic added that Florida and Texas continue to be strong growth markets for Little Greek. He forecasts that these markets will continue to offer expansion opportunities in Tampa Bay and Orlando, Florida, in addition to the Dallas, Texas area.

“In the past five years, Little Greek has grown from four to 31 locations,” Vojnovic says. “Three of our locations recently surpassed the million dollar sales level.”

Little Greek Fresh Grill, a fast-casual Greek restaurant with an American influence, is currently in five states (Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, and Texas.)
