Greek From Greece (GFG) Cafe Cuisine to Open New Location in Rye, NY

RYE, NY – Greek From Greece (GFG) Café Cuisine, the Greek fast casual restaurant will be opening a new location at 100 Purchase Street by the Rye train station this fall, MyRye.com reported on June 10, adding that the “location will have 20 indoor and 60 outdoor seats.”

According to the company’s news release, dated June 4, the Rye location marks the eatery’s “44th location in development this year.” The news release continued: Known for delicious Greek cuisine, pastries and café items imported directly from Greece, GFG Café Cuisine is building on strong growth from the first half of 2020, including the merger and rebranding of its largest competitor in Manhattan and a 31-unit expansion deal.

Located in a mixed retail area near the Rye train station with heavy foot traffic, the 1900-square-foot storefront at 100 Purchase Street is one of more than 40 GFG Café Cuisine locations in development across several states. The new Rye location will have approximately 20 indoor seats and outdoor seating for 60. Construction is expected to begin immediately, with an opening date tentatively scheduled for the fall of 2020. “Rye is the perfect area for GFG,” said Georgios Drosos, founder and CEO of GFG Café Cuisine. “It has a good variety of restaurants and retail, with plenty of parking. The train is popular with commuters, and we’ll be in a great spot for grab-and-go and café items as well as meals for dine-in and take-out.”

“GFG is on the fast-track,” said Dan Rowe, CEO of Fransmart. “They have not only signed a deal with their first franchisee in Philadelphia, but they have more than 40 corporate stores opening in New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. It’s the perfect time for franchisees to get on board with this rapidly growing brand, particularly given the significant opportunity right now, when low-cost restaurant conversions can boost, and possibly double, their ROI [return on investment].”

Drosos and a group of successful businessmen with high levels of industry experience opened the first GFG Café Cuisine in 2017 to long lines and delighted customers. Six other locations soon followed throughout Manhattan and New Jersey, and an eighth location in Tampa, Florida, opened in December 2019. With the recent 31-unit expansion deal in Long Island and Stamford, Connecticut, and additional deals in the pipeline, GFG Café Cuisine projects that more than 50 units will either be open or in progress by the end of the year, making them the dominant brand in Greek cuisine. GFG Café Cuisine is currently seeking experienced multi-unit foodservice operators and scouting potential markets across the country and internationally. Those interested in joining GFG Café Cuisine as franchisees will get support from start to finish, from site selection expertise and sample floor plans to custom training systems and localized brand building.
