Authentic Greek Bakery Concept GFG Café Cuisine Opens Two Locations in the Pennsylvania Area
The fast-growing Greek café’s arrival in Pennsylvania kicks off rapid expansion across the East Coast
February 25, 2021 // Franchising.com // PHILADELPHIA - Greek from Greece (GFG) Café Cuisine has opened its first two Pennsylvania locations. A new GFG Café at 107 N. 33rd Street in Philadelphia is the concept’s first franchised location, and a new GFG Café at 115 W. State Street in Kennett Square is one of more than 40 corporate locations in development this year.
Located near Drexel University, the Philadelphia location will be operated by GFG’s first franchisee, Dimitri Gouliaberis. Dimitri’s father immigrated from Northern Greece to the U.S. in 1972 and opened a restaurant to create an escape from the office, a place to grab a quick bite, and a place where you could end your day laughing and eating with friends. Dimitri is continuing his father’s legacy with a GFG Café Cuisine franchise.
“Dimitri shares our love for Greek food, our passion for exceptional ingredient quality and our dedication to creating a welcoming, comfortable atmosphere for each guest,” said Georgios (George) Drosos, CEO of GFG Café Cuisine. “We are thrilled to bring authentic Greek flavors, served with our signature Greek hospitality, to diners across the Philadelphia area.”
The Kennett Square restaurant operators, Chris and Maria Kotanidis, are successful entrepreneurs with 30 years of experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry. Their extensive knowledge of the industry positions the location for exceptional achievement.
Drosos and a group of successful businessmen with high levels of industry experience and knowledge opened the first GFG Café Cuisine in 2017 to long lines and delighted customers.
“GFG is growing at lightning-speed, and expanding into Pennsylvania is a strategic move as the brand gains popularity across the East Coast,” said Dan Rowe, CEO of Fransmart, GFG’s franchising partner. “With a flexible design that’s perfect for low-cost conversions, GFG has created the perfect opportunity for franchisees with a passion for Greek cuisine at an accessible price-point.”
