Our History

The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill has a history of scrumptious food and a loyal customer base. The first location opened on May 5, 2011 in Henderson, Nevada. It was originally owned and operated by a Greek/Armenian family before being purchased by Nick Della Penna and Trent Jones, third generation restaurateurs with over 30 years’ experience in the hospitality industry. They made operational changes to the restaurant, enhancing the restaurant’s performance. 

Building on that success, they have opened up several locations throughout the Las Vegas area as well as opening a location in Palm Beach Gardens, FL and the most recent one in West Palm Beach, FL.

Nick and Trent began to look for a franchising expert who could take their concept and help it expand around the globe and they found that with the United Franchise Group, The Global Leader for Entrepreneurs. On the heels of the franchising success of its Jon Smith Subs brand, and building on more than 30 years of franchising history, UFG is introducing The Great Greek to communities around the world.
