Titan Foods to Reopen in the Spring at New Location in Astoria

ASTORIA – Titan Foods is set to reopen in the spring at a new location in Astoria, Eater NY reported on March 25, adding that the “Astoria staple that claimed to be ‘the largest retail Greek food and grocery store in North America,’ shuttered last year, following the sale of the longtime building that housed it.”

“At the time, the owners promised to reopen elsewhere in the neighborhood,” Eater NY reported, noting that “now, a lease deal has been inked.”

According to a report in QNS, “as of this spring, Titan Foods will finally reopen at Steinway Street and 23rd Road” in Astoria, Eater NY reported.

“The relocation is ‘a fresh start’ the founder’s daughter, Anatoli (Anna) Mastoras told Eater in 2023, with a ‘different setup and a different design,’” Eater NY reported, noting that “no opening date has yet been set but there are Reddit threads centered on staying abreast of its return to Queens.”

Eater NY cited The National Herald’s February 4, 2023 article on the sale of the original Titan location, pointing out that “the original home of Titan Foods, at 25-56 31st Street, went for $10.5 million in 2023, Greek newspaper The National Herald reported at the time — a sale covering both the storefront, its building, and its adjoining parking lot.”

“While it was closed, Titan Foods continued online sales, and kept up with its secondary outpost, Titan Bakery in Deer Park, NY, on Long Island, where it also handles distribution under the name Optima,” Eater NY reported, adding that “Titan Foods was first opened in the 1970s, by Kostas and Stavroula Mastoras, who moved to the U.S. as students.”

“In 1996, the family moved to 25-56 31st Street, a 16,000 square-foot space,” Eater NY reported, pointing out the impressive array of Greek products available at Titan, including “at one point, 20 varieties of feta cheese alone.”
