The Simple Greek Philosophies
The Simple Greek is redefining the traditional Greek restaurant with an interactive concept that combines high-quality ingredients, open kitchens and Greek atmosphere in a fast, casual setting. Marcus Lemonis’ advice for any future franchisee is simple: know your numbers, trust the process, and remember we are working together to build something special.

Inspired by a restaurant concept from his CNBC reality television show, The Profit, The Simple Greek was founded by Marcus Lemonis in 2015. Marcus had always wanted to find an opportunity to share his love of Greek food with the world and The Simple Greek was an instant success!
The Simple Greek concept was franchised in 2016. Four years later, we have opened locations across the country and our current plans call for rapid expansion.
There are numerous choices when it comes to Quick Service Dining, and it seems like there is a new one that opens up every couple of months. So what makes the difference? All of them have their recipes and their specific decor, but how many of them treat you like family? Most of these restaurants are owned by investment groups, but The Simple Greek is owned by families, and that is how we treat our guests – like they are visiting our home.
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.
The Simple Greek prides itself on serving not only the most authentic Greek style food, but a fresh and healthy take on the ancient Greek recipes. Our ingredients are anything but ordinary and our dedication to quality and premium products is what drives every decision within our menu.
The traditional Cretan cuisine is considered to be one of the healthiest in the world. The abundance and variety of the products on the island through centuries have created a cuisine rich in local olive oil, vegetables, fruit, honey, and wine. The Cretan Diet, also known as the Mediterranean Diet, has long been associated with ingredients of exceptional quality.
We are passionate about our products and put great emphasis on quality and taste utilizing homemade recipes. Your food is produced using old traditional recipes and only the best raw ingredients at the highest production standards in a modern, fast casual environment.
