Greek from Greece opens new franchise location in Philadelphia

The fast-casual Greek concept has opened in Philadelphia for the first time as a part of its nationwide strategy. 

Greek from Greece (gfg) Café has just celebrated the grand opening of its Philadelphia store, located at 107 N 33rd Street near Drexel University. This marks the brand’s second unit in the state of Pennsylvania and the third to open in 2021. There are a further 11 locations in development. 

“We want the Philly location to usher in an era of food, fun and parea, which is a Greek term for a group of friends who regularly gather to share their life experiences, philosophies and ideas,” said Dimitri Gouliaberis, gfg Café franchisee.  

“Drexel’s students will find gfg as the perfect hideaway from the hustle of academic life, professionals will enjoy delicious and quick food, and most importantly, all will have the ability to enjoy dining and coffee the way it was meant to be enjoyed – with others.” 

“We’re excited to open a second location in the state of Pennsylvania and are already seeing great success,” said the founder and CEO of gfg Café.  

“We’re confident the lively Philadelphia community will love our authentic Greek cuisine, and we will become a go-to spot for grab-and-go food and coffee for the locals.” 

The brand is well known for its authentic Greek cuisine, with many ingredients imported from Greece. 

“Gfg is the perfect concept to be near, or even inside, a college campus, mall kiosk or food court or airport given its incredibly flexible footprint and hoodless, ventless concept,” said Dan Rowe, CEO of Fransmart, gfg’s franchise development partner.  

“Low-cost conversion opportunities can dramatically increase ROI for franchisees interested in taking over an existing space that recently closed down in a food hall or other kiosk-style model.”
