The Great Greek Offers Free Gyro to Frontliners, Unemployed in Winter Garden

WINTER GARDEN, FL – The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill, 16045 New Independence Pkwy in Winter Garden, will be giving away free food (a gyro and salad) on Monday, April 27, 2-4 PM, to the frontline against the coronavirus, including healthcare workers and first responders, as well as those who lost their jobs or have been furloughed due to the current lockdown, “as long as you are a resident of Clermont or Winter Garden,” Orlando Weekly reported on April 24.

The offer is available only at the restaurant’s Winter Garden location for those 2 hours, so calling ahead is recommended as staff will be making curbside deliveries at that time, 407-794-1700, Orlando Weekly reported.

“First responders and medical staff just have to show their ID and license,” Orlando Weekly reported, adding that “those out of work are on the honor system, but are still asked to show ID to verify they live in Clermont or Winter Garden.”

“The Great Greek gyro comes with beef and lamb, or grilled chicken, and lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, tzatziki sauce, and feta cheese,” Orlando Weekly reported, noting that “a restaurant can't just give away free food to anyone and everyone and not expect to go broke, so there's no shade to the Great Greek for limiting their offer to Clermont and Winter Garden residents only.”

The Great Greek chain of 11 restaurants includes three locally owned in Florida, Orlando Weekly reported, adding that the other two Florida locations are in Palm Beach Gardens and Port St. Lucie.


Brad Parker, Hospitality CEO and founder of Parker Hospitality in Chicago, had an idea to put an Italian restaurant in an empty prime spot in the city's West Loop.
