Despite the COVID-19 pandemic that closed a lot of Greek restaurants and diners across the United States, the franchise The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill is going great guns and will open more locations, two in Charleston, South Carolina.
They will be operated by the Willis family, said Restaurant News, and feature favorite Greek fare such as gyros, lamb, steak and chicken souvlaki platters, seafood including salmon and shrimp, and other Mediterranean specialties such as hummus, tzatziki, melitzanosalata, and the spicy cheese tirokafteri and feta fries, adding a twist to the traditional.
“We are very excited for this new journey in our business life and as a family we want to create an atmosphere where not only is the food unbelievably fresh and amazing but the moment you walk through the door you feel like family. We look forward to being involved in the community and offering the best Greek food that will keep you coming back for more!” said Scott Willis on behalf of the family.
And what would dinner be without dessert? The restaurants offer baklava ice cream or Greek rice pudding, as customers trend toward fast casual offerings.
