On Monday morning, August 8, the City of Crown Point introduced a new restaurant, The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill, to Crown Point. City officials, restaurant staff, and owners of the new business gathered to celebrate another eagerly awaited addition to a fast-growing city.
“This is one of those restaurants that as it was getting closer and closer to the opening date I was getting flooded with a lot of good questions. ‘When’s it going to open? When’s it going to open?’ Well, today’s the day,” said Pete Land, Mayor of Crown Point.
After officially cutting the ribbon and opening the restaurant, everyone in attendance went inside to enjoy some delicious food. Not a single person left unimpressed.
“We just ate great food in here. You’re not going to walk away hungry. Great portions, great food, and the staff—I just got a chance to speak with them and get to know them a bit better, and they truly are a family that is passionate and enthusiastic to be in Crown Point,” said Land.
The Crown Point location is the 25th Great Greek Mediterranean Grill to open in the United States. The small franchise is quickly growing—the plan is for 15 more locations to be opened by the end of the year, and the ultimate goal is to have 250-300 locations by the end of 2024.
David Espin, manager of new restaurant openings for United Franchise Group, explained that Crown Point is extremely lucky to have a location open in their community so early in the company’s growth.
“It’s an incredible opportunity to get in on such an incredible product. It’s really an exciting time to be a part of this new restaurant because it’s just so different. There’s nothing else out there like it exactly, and it’s growing, and everybody wants to get in on that,” said Espin.
Mayor Land believes that The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill will do great in Crown Point. With its convenient location right off the highway on the corner of 109th and Broadway, no one can miss it. The owners have already been out in the community building a business base at other events, ensuring their new business’ success. Mayor land is excited about the variety the restaurant will bring to the city.
“It’s a great alternative. We have so many good restaurants in the city, and now this is such a great alternative to the kind of food that is already here. It’s all about variety and it’ll be a good asset to the city,” said Land.
The City of Crown Point’s introduction ceremony for The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill proved what a positive impact the new restaurant will have on the City of Crown Point. Not only is the food made fresh in-house every single day, but the staff is passionate about what they’re doing. It’s something you certainly don’t want to miss out on.
“Everybody is so sweet and wonderful. It’s really another place to call home, so come have fun,” said Espin.
