Greek Quick-Service Franchise Looks to Build Off Impressive Start to 2023 with Continued Expansion
Gyro Shack – a Greek quick-service restaurant concept with healthier fast-food options and authentic flavors of gyros, hummus, and more – has seen consistent growth throughout the first half of 2023, as the brand looks to continue momentum for the remainder of the year. With the recently opened Gyro Shack location in Tucson, Arizona, the brand looks forward to continued expansion in the Southwest region. In the second half of the year, Gyro Shack is excited to open the doors of the brand’s first location in New Mexico. The Albuquerque catering hub and food truck commissary location looks to open in August of 2023, with the brick-and-mortar location coming early next year. With new locations on the horizon, Gyro Shack is continuing to explore development opportunities in Las Vegas, Nevada, Phoenix, Arizona and other surrounding areas for further expansion.
“The Tucson opening is definitely an inflection point for Gyro Shack,” said Seth Brink, President of Gyro Shack. “We are an ethnic food brand located in Boise, Idaho, and getting new locations open in other areas of the country is pivotal for us to prove portability and show potential partners that Gyro Shack is just as successful inside and outside of our home state.”
Gyro Shack’s commitment to providing the highest quality service and Greek food to communities will continue to be the brand’s top priority through 2023 and beyond. The first half of 2023 required a significant investment by the Gyro Shack team to dive deeply into unit economics. Through continued wage increases, the brand has continued to make great strides in bringing costs down and running units with scalable economics.
“This year, we have overcome obstacles regarding the labor force,” continued Brink. “We have spent a great deal of time ensuring we are hiring the right people for our teams. With staff who are invested in the Gyro Shack brand and love what they do, we have seen a massive increase in overall morale within our workforce and look forward to building upon that momentum.”
With 14% growth in number of operating locations so far this year, Gyro Shack looks forward to further expansion in the remainder of 2023 and beyond. The brand is actively seeking committed franchise partners for an additional location in Tucson, AZ, as well as targeted development in the Southwest region.
2023 has been and continues to be a significant year for Gyro Shack, as the brand’s continued expansion throughout the United States increases. For more information on Gyro Shack’s franchise opportunity, visit www.gyroshack.com/franchise/.
