Mr. Greek opened its doors to the public in February of 1988. The Danforth location, in the heart of Greek Town in Toronto quickly became known as the busiest Greek restaurant in the city. In the first year of business, Mr. Greek's sales surpassed the expectations of everyone, and it soon became the number one force in Greek cuisine in Toronto. Business continued to boom and four years later, a need for a location was identified in the city's east end. From there, the word spread, Mr. Greek became popular with the entire community, and now, Mr. Greek has grown to 22 locations in Southern Ontario.
