Greek From Greece (GFG) Café Cuisine, a large and fast-growing Greek fast casual restaurant, has opened its first two Pennsylvania locations in Philadelphia and Kennett Square.
Located near Drexel University, the Philadelphia location will be operated by GFG’s first franchisee, Dimitri Gouliaberis, whose Dimitri’s father came from Northern Greece to the United States in 1972 and opened a restaurant, said Restaurant News.
“Dimitri shares our love for Greek food, our passion for exceptional ingredient quality and our dedication to creating a welcoming, comfortable atmosphere for each guest,” said Georgios (George) Drosos, CEO of GFG Café Cuisine
“We are thrilled to bring authentic Greek flavors, served with our signature Greek hospitality, to diners across the Philadelphia area,” he said, the restaurants opening during the lingering COVID-19 pandemic.
The operators of the other GFG, Chris and Maria Kotanidis, are entrepreneurs with 30 years of experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry.
Drosos and a group of businessmen experienced in the field opened the first GFG Café Cuisine in 2017, quickly adding nine more throughout Manhattan and New Jersey, and in Tampa, Florida in 2019 and many more coming soon.
