THE PROCESS

The Simple Greek is utilizing a build-your-own assembly line style set-up in an open kitchen to show off all of the fresh food being prepared. After a new menu and menu board were created, the ordering process was simplified to fit an easy assembly line layout. Each bowl, salad, or pita is made right before your eyes as you go down the line. All you have to do is simply step up to the counter and create your own Greek creation utilizing a variety of fresh meats, veggies, sauces, and spices. There is also a variety of different sides, sweets, and drinks you can add to your order.
