Horizon West is about to go Greek.

Little Greek Fresh Grill soon will be opening at the Westside Shoppes at 6536 Old Brick Road, Suite 130, Windermere. A soft opening is planned for later this month, and a grand opening will take place in early November, restaurant owner Andrew Tate said.

“I’m really excited to open up and be able to to give back to the community and be a part of this community,” Tate said. “We do our best with (customer service). … It’s a friendly environment, and the food is, I think, some of the best Greek food around.”

Westside Shoppes’ newest restaurant will offer quality Greek cuisine made from the freshest ingredients at affordable prices. Menu items are prepared from scratch daily. 

The steak skewers (souvlaki) come in two options: lite or dinner. The lite option comes with two skewers and the dinner option comes with three.

“(The restaurant follows) a concept where everything is cooked to order,” Tate said. “We make everything in-house.”

The restaurant chain was founded in Florida by Sigrid Bratic. The first location opened in Palm Harbor about 12 years ago, Tate said.

“Palm Harbor, which is right outside of Tarpon Springs, (has) a really big Greek community in the North Tampa area,” he said. 

Since opening, Little Greek Fresh Grill has expanded to 39 locations throughout Florida, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky and Texas with more locations under development. Currently, there are six locations in the Orlando market. Tate also owns the restaurant’s first West Orange location in Winter Garden Village at Fowlers Grove. 

“This is a developing area,” Tate said, adding he chose to open the two restaurants in the area so he could live and work near his family. 

Those interested in working at the Little Greek Fresh Grill at Westside Shoppes are welcome to apply now, Tate said. 

“We have our job posting up (on, but also (you can apply) through the Little Greek website,” he said. “We encourage applicants to apply (online) or come in.”
