Greek-inspired Gyroville Opens Tenth U.S. Location
South Florida-based Greek concept set to open in Orlando
February 28, 2019 // Franchising.com // FORT LAUDERDALE, FL - Gyroville - a Fort Lauderdale-based fast-casual restaurant chain known for its Greek-inspired, build-your-own-plate menu offerings - is set to open its tenth United States location in Orlando.
Opening on Monday, March 4, the new restaurant is located at 10376 E Colonial Drive in Reedy Plaza and is owned and operated by Edgar Paqueo. To celebrate the grand opening, the restaurant will be offering $2.99 gyros from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, March 7.
“We are thrilled to be bringing Gyroville’s diverse menu of both traditional and contemporary Greek specialties to the Orlando community,” said Paqueo. “While there isn’t a complete lack of Mediterranean cuisine in the local market, we’re sure local consumers will embrace the authentic versatility of the Gyroville menu.”
Pronounced just like the word looks, rather than the Greek pronunciation, which is more like yee-roh, Gyroville provides an interactive, build-your-own concept that allows guests to follow their choice of protein from the grill or vertical spit and served in a pita, over rice, as a wrap or salad.
There are various protein choices from which to choose, including gyro meat, chicken or falafel as a vegetarian option. Next comes the modern twist on traditional Greek restaurant cuisine. Customers can choose between six sauces made fresh daily. These include original tzatziki, hummus, spicy feta or one of our variations of our original tzatziki; Medichurri Salsa or jalapeño spinach.
Freshly chopped romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, Jalapeno peppers, and onions are among the many condiments which can also be added to the food.
“We're disrupting the fast-casual scene and proving that the build-your-own style concept can be fresh, unique and flavorful,” said Gyroville founder Lambros Kokkinelis. “Our franchise has really taken off over the past year and the future is incredibly bright. We’re so excited to welcome the Paqueo family to the Gyroville family, and look forward to feeding the growing consumer demand for the healthful and wide-ranging cuisines of the Mediterranean region.”
The local expansion news comes on the heels of Gyroville’s recent announcement to expand its national footprint with as many as 30 new restaurants over the next five years. In addition to continued growth throughout Florida, targeted growth markets include Georgia, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Tennessee and Texas.
Today, there are ten locations open in Florida and Kansas and one in Ecuador.
Founded in 2010 and franchising since 2016, Gyroville was created from the need to fulfill the lack of Mediterranean cuisine in the fast-casual market. The Greek-inspired, build-your-own plate concept allows customers to follow their choice of protein off the grill or carved from a vertical spit through an assembly line and served in a pita, over rice, as a wrap or salad. Today, there are nine locations open and operating in the Unites States and a tenth in Ecuador. For more information, visit www.gyroville.com.
