Grecian Gyro Celebrates 28 Years as Atlanta's Best Gyro

Legendary Eatery Introduces New Menu Items and Launches Franchising Opportunities

Grecian Gyro, a family-owned, authentic Greek eatery, is celebrating the 28th anniversary of its original location in Hapeville, Georgia. Opening its doors in 1982, Grecian Gyro now has three locations and has become known for its freshly-made, affordable Greek meals and gyro wrap sandwiches that are made with the finest ingredients and topped with a secret, homemade sauce. In conjunction with the 28th anniversary, Grecian Gyro has expanded its menu and has launched a franchise program in Georgia.

With $50 in his pocket, a dream in his heart, and his secret sauce recipe locked tightly in his head, Nick Koulouris opened the first Grecian Gyro in a “hole in the wall” locale by Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. 28 years later, not much about the iconic location has changed, including Nick’s dedication to serving the best gyros and Greek fare reminiscent of what he grew up eating in Greece. The small, no-frills spot is a throwback to mom and pop restaurants of the 50s and often has a line of hungry diners wrapped around the building.

Enlisting the help of his two sons, George and Pano, Nick expanded the Grecian Gyro concept in 2007 and has two additional locations in Tucker and Forest Park, Ga. Fast service, uncompromising quality, fresh ingredients, affordable prices ($5-$10), and of course Nick’s secret sauce, have helped Grecian Gyro earn its reputation of serving Atlanta’s Best Gyro. Following the success of the first three locations, Grecian Gyro is expanding its family-owned Greek restaurant concept, offering franchise opportunities in Georgia.

Made following time-tested family recipes, Grecian Gyro’s traditional Greek offerings, featuring custom sauces and spices prepared by hand, have been the cornerstone of the business. Produce is bought locally, the traditional gyro meat is carefully selected from trusted sources, and the Koulouris family imports superior ingredients including Feta cheese, peppers and olives directly from Nick's hometown of Kalamata, Greece.

New wraps available at the Tucker and Forest Park locations include Grecian Tuna Salad (white Albacore tuna), Steak (Angus sirloin steak medallions) Crispy Chicken (fried chicken breast tenders) and Fried Cod (beer-battered Icelandic cod fillets).
