Two former Tacoma gas station owners have secured the Western Washington market for Mr. Greek, a Canadian-based chain of casual restaurants that will open the first of five locations around Christmas, in the South Hill area of Puyallup.
A 180-seat Mr. Greek will open in the old Safeway at 4301 St. Meridian St. in Puyallup, TNT business reporter C.R. Roberts reports. Nader and Nabil Morcos, both of Puyallup, plan to follow with locations in Federal Way and somewhere between Tacoma and Bellevue. They have a franchise agreement for five restaurants total.
Mr. Greek, with headquarters in Ontario, operates 21 Canadian locations.
