California Chain Apóla Greek Grill Will Make Donations to Food Bank

The aptly-named Apóla Greek Grill – ‘apola’ means ‘from everything’ – wants to give some back so during the holidays through Jan. 5, 2023 will donate 5 percent of all proceeds from the sale of some foods to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County in Southern California.

That’s for sales of Apóla Pita Sandwiches, Plates with a goal of raising $5,000 and said it would kick in $2500 to get it started, banking on its authentic Greek gyro to whet appetites and fill coffers, QSR reported.

“We’ve had a great 2022, opening two new locations and celebrating five awesome years with our fans,” said Co-Founder Yianni Kosmides. “We wanted to share those successes with those less fortunate in Orange County, especially during and after the holiday season. Our growth has the Apóla brand gaining more traction across Southern California, so why not put those gains for good use and help others?”

“With only four locations, we’re not a huge brand,” adds Kosmides. “But we believe every little bit helps, which is why each of our employees will have the chance help Second Harvest and make a difference in our community.”


PHILADELPHIA, PA – The Federation of Hellenic-American Societies of Philadelphia and the Greater Delaware Valley announced its 2023 Greek Independence Celebrations, including the Flag Raising Ceremony at Philadelphia’s City Hall on Friday,  March 31, 2 PM, kicking off the weekend of events.
