Led by a core team from Greece dedicated to raising the bar of authentic Greek coffee and food in the US, Greek From Greece (GFG) is known for providing visitors a friendly, comfortable environment, and a high-quality homemade taste experience with every bite. And no wonder, since all products served and sold in the GFG stores are made in Greece. Not to mention that GFG perfectly aligns with the universal shift towards organic, natural ingredients, and specific move towards the Mediterranean Diet, as a premier paradigm of healthy, natural eating.
Recently, GFG has signed the lease for a new location at 100 Purchase Street in Rye, New York, while continuing to build on its 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.
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. “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.”
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.
