Greek from Greece (gfg) Café opens Philly location near Drexel University
New restaurant is second Pennsylvania restaurant
Greek from Greece (gfg) Café opened a new store in Philadelphia, Pa. near Drexel University, its first franchise unit. The location at 107 North 33rd Street is gfg’s second restaurant in Pennsylvania, following the opening at Kennett Square earlier in the year, as gfg ramps up its franchising program.
The gfg Café serves food imported from Greece, an essential component of the brand. The Philadelphia restaurant, which debuted last month, serves breakfast sandwiches, baked pastries, yogurt parfaits, fruit salads, and 15 different types of traditional Greek pies.
“We want the Philly location to usher in an era of food, fun and parea, which is a Greek term for a group of friends who regularly gather to share their life experiences, philosophies and ideas,” said Gouliaberis, gfg Café franchisee. “Drexel’s students will find gfg as the perfect hideaway from the hustle of academic life, professionals will enjoy delicious and quick food, and most importantly, all will have the ability to enjoy dining and coffee the way it was meant to be enjoyed—with others.”
The Philadelphia store becomes the third unit opened this year, with 11 units in the development pipeline. gfg Drexel came to the city in partnership with gfg franchisee Dimitri Gouliaberis.
“Gfg is the perfect concept to be near, or even inside, a college campus, mall kiosk or food court or airport given its incredibly flexible footprint and hoodless, ventless concept,” said Dan Rowe, Fransmart chief executive, Greek from Greece franchise development partner. “Low-cost conversion opportunities can dramatically increase ROI for franchisees interested in taking over an existing space that recently closed down in a food hall or other kiosk-style model.”
