The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill has a history of scrumptious food and a loyal customer base. The first location opened on May 5, 2011, in Henderson, Nevada. It was originally owned and operated by a culinary-trained Greek/Armenian family before being purchased by Nick Della Penna and Trent Jones, third-generation restaurateurs with over 30 years’ experience in the hospitality industry. They made operational changes to the restaurant, enhancing the restaurant’s performance. And took it to a whole new level of success. Building on that success, they opened a second location on June 7, 2017, and since then have opened additional locations in Las Vegas and South Florida. Nick and Trent began to look for a franchising expert who could take their concept and help it expand around the globe and they found that with the United Franchise Group, The Global Leader for Entrepreneurs. On the heels of the franchising success of its Jon Smith Subs brand and building on more than 30 years of franchising history, UFG is introducing The Great Greek to communities around the world.
