Defying COVID-19, Greek From Greece Eateries Will Grow More

December 25, 2020

While hundreds of thousands of restaurants across the United States are going under or already have because of the relentless COVID-19 pandemic keeping people from eating out, the New Jersey-based Greek from Greece is expanding. 

The chain, which features an array of Greek foods and products, plans to open five locations in next six months, including the six months of 2021, including two in Pennsylvania, in Kennett Square and Philadelphia. 

The others will be in Rye, NY, Lynnfield, MA, and Weekhawken, NJ, adding to the 44 stores, a strong presence mainly in the New York metropolitan market, but also going further nationally. 

CEO George Drosos said he and his partners have spent millions building a supply chain that brings proprietary pastries and foods imported from Greece to every corner of the United States. 

He teamed up with Fransmart CEO Dan Rowe, because of his extensive knowledge of franchising, a new GFG Express Model coming as the company merged with Dairy Barn, planning to convert 30 of them into their brand. 

Signature Greek GFG products will be placed inside the existing Dairy Barns to introduce a drive-through convenience store. 


Anton "Tony" Mandros, 87, of Portsmouth, RI, passed to his eternal reward on January 19.
